Holiday Information

Join us on this guided cycling holiday in Spain where we trace the steps of ancient travellers and make our way along the legendary Camino de Santiago. Pedalling from the historic city of Ponferrada, we will journey west over 200 Kms, through the Bierzo winelands, over the Sierra de Ancares and deep into lush, forested Galicia to the pilgrim journey's end in the stunning granite city of Santiago de Compostela.
The Camino is said to be the first great European tourist route. Travelled by pilgrims from around the world for over 1000 years to the site where it is said that St. James the Apostle’s relics are buried.
Pilgrims historically were driven by the belief that to complete the pilgrimage would halve your time in Purgatory….something to bear in mind if your calves start to ache! Today the pilgrimage is as popular as ever with a great sense of camaraderie among the modern day pilgrims. It’s no longer just the faithful that make their way on this magnificent journey!
The Camino received UNESCO’s accolade as a World Heritage Site because of the journey’s incalculable cultural, historical and artistic value.
Our cycling route follows the true Camino Frances as much as possible along forest tracks and country paths, quiet roads and farmers’ trails, crossing countless villages and towns. Staying in a range of good-quality, small hotels chosen for their location and warm welcome, we'll be able to sample tasty, local specialities in the inns and local restaurants giving us an authentic taste of this enchanting area. It’s hard to find a better way to enjoy Spain than cycling the Camino de Santiago. Get your pilgrim's passport or credential stamped along the way and having cycled more than 200 Kms you'll qualify for a pilgrim's certificate, the Compostela - to testify that you have completed the Camino as a pilgrim.
As with all of our guided tours, the Skedaddle support vehicle is never far away, should you need a snack or a lift on a particular section of the route.
