20th wedding anniversary trip
maarb0l (source: Tripadvisor)

My husband and I decided to do the Camino de Santiago in celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better outfit to help us make a very special one.
We did not have a lot of time, so we decided to do the Camino on bikes. Follow el Camino were very accurate in describing what we should expect. The bikes that were delivered to our first hotel for us to use were perfectly sized and in great condition. They include the tools and spare parts necessary for the road and they came in handy. The accommodations were expertly picked, very comfortable and always close enough to the center of the action without being in the middle of it. We had a fantastic time. The only thing I would change for the next time is not to have such long rides each day to be able to spend more tine in each town.

cycling the camino
Joseph R (source: Tripadvisor)

A memorable trip cycling the camino. Everything was perfect- hotels were great, bikes were of good standard and luggage was collected and delivered on time. We only had to focus on the cycling. I would give ten stars if this was an option.

cycling the Spanish section of The Camino from Roncesvalles to Santiago
IanCunliffe (source: Tripadvisor)

All round excellent service from Follow the Camino. High quality bikes, reliable baggage transfers and generally outstanding hotels (only limited by a few of the overnight towns inevitably having less choice). The hotels at Roncesvalles, Pamplona, Burgos, Leon, Portomarin, Arzua, and Santiago were really excellent

  • Cycling the Camino de Santiago requires great fitness and stamina. You’ll be cycling between 15 and 45 miles (25-70 km) per day, sometimes on long and steep climbs. Keep in mind that 7-day options include 5 consecutive cycling days, while the 17-day option involves 15, making it much more strenuous. Expect varying terrain, with some sections being uneven, unpaved, or on loose ground. This trip is ideal for those who cycle regularly, and it’s even better if you have experience of riding on uneven/unpaved terrain. If you’re joining this cycling tour, we expect you to be fit and healthy, ready to take on an achievable challenge!

  • The route follows the Camino Frances as closely as possible. You’ll be riding on different surfaces including back roads, forest tracks, and footpaths. There are occasional sections along the Camino that are loose and rocky, which you can either ride or hop onto the road for some faster riding.

    The trail can get narrow and once in Galicia, you’ll encounter corredoiras, beautiful ancient cobbled lanes that can get a bit rough at times. Although most of the Camino is leisurely, there are still a few substantial climbs with frequent ups and downs along the way. There is an option of renting electric bikes, which is what we recommend to anyone who’d like a little boost up some of those hills!

  • Here’s what you’ll need:

      • Comfortable, season-appropriate riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture wicking or synthetic material
      • Padded shorts
      • Peaked helmet
      • Sneakers or sport shoes
      • Breathable outside layer or jacket
      • Sunglasses
      • Water bottle or hydration bladder
      • Daypack
      • Biking gloves are optional but recommended
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, etc.)

    Mountain bike is included in the price of the tour, but you can bring your own if you prefer. Bring comfortable clothes appropriate for the season and for different weather conditions. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans.

  • By going on a self-guided tour, you’re able to cycle at your own pace and enjoy the journey without worrying about the logistics of it all. The guiding company who put this all together is Follow the Camino. They’ve been leading pilgrims along their journey since 2007 and they were the first ever operator to organize tours along Camino de Santiago.

    There are many perks of choosing a self-guided tour. Apart from not having to adjust to the group, you’ll have the accommodation, breakfasts and route instructions sorted. You’ll be staying in carefully-selected 2-3* hotels and guesthouses and there’s no need to print out anything upon checking-in—your guides booked and arranged everything for you, all you have to do is show your I.D.

    This is a hassle-free trip so if you want to focus on enjoying your cycling pilgrimage in the
    Spanish bucolic countryside, these self-guided tours are the perfect match.

  • Your guides will send you a pre-departure pack by post. The pack contains your pilgrim passport, luggage tag, route notes or guidebook if you’ve requested a hard copy. In case there are certain complications with receiving the pre-departure pack, it will wait for you at your first accommodation.

    You’ll have to download the route notes and vouchers yourself. The cycling route notes are here to assist you. We recommend that you always familiarize yourself with the daily journey ahead. You’ll also download the vouchers yourself. These vouchers contain all the information about your confirmed accommodation—there will be an address, their phone number, any special instructions on how to get there, and a small map.

    You will find a 24/7 support phone number on the bottom of each voucher. Keep in mind that there’s no need to print out the vouchers, as your reservations will be confirmed.

  • Luggage transfers are not included in the price of this tour. Your guide can help you find the best solution and organize transfers. Here is some general advice:

    • The luggage transfer is usually limited to 1 bag per person with a maximum weight of 15 kg per bag.
    • Boots or smaller bags attached to the main bag count as an extra bag and will be charged accordingly.
    • Always write your trip reference and your mobile phone number on your bag.
  • Group sizes and prices:

      • It’s possible to arrange self-guided tours for both solo travelers as well as large groups. The cost does not decrease as the group grows.

    Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors younger than 18 may be permitted to join the hike on a case-by-case basis, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.
