Spain’s Camino de Santiago
Explore a thousand years of history as you bicycle from the Spanish/French border across northern Spain to the pilgrimage destination of Santiago de Compostela. Our route retraces the "Codex Calixtinus," the original guide to El Camino de Santiago written by the monk Aymeric Picaud in the 12th century.
This is one of the most important historic journeys in Europe — a pilgrimage route turned cultural icon. Over fifteen days we bicycle through three language and culinary regions, the Rioja wine region, the cities of Leon, Pamplona, and Burgos, and into Galicia, the extreme northwest region of Spain. Since this route has been used since the 11th century you’ll see some of the finest medieval architecture in Europe.
