From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

2. From Oviedo: Half-Day Camino de Santiago Hike

Experience part of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route on this half-day tour. Start your tour at the Cathedral of Oviedo, a very important visiting point for pilgrims where you will learn more about the roots of the Camino de Santiago and Primitivo and the role that the Asturian kings and Oviedo played. The first part of the route leads through Oviedo city center and its outskirts. Here, learn more about Asturian culture and gastronomy before entering the beautiful Asturian countryside. You can stamp your pilgrim passport (which you'll receive at the start of the tour) in chapels and bars along the way. Follow the road through small villages along the original, hilly route that hundreds of thousands of pilgrims have taken in previous centuries. Stop along the way to sample some delicious typical Asturian snacks. The tour guide will lead you and tell you about the Camino and Asturias, but there is ample opportunity to enjoy the landscape in silence and meet fellow pilgrims in order to get a real taste of the Camino.

Really convenient to be driven 10km out and dropped off, where we could start walking without having to think. Our guide gave us some good information before and during the trail, and met us with the surprise and graciously took some pictures of us at the end. Despite the pouring rain, I enjoyed the experience. However, given that entrance to the cathedral is free and we were not given tickets to the museum, I would say this activity is a little overpriced.

We were taken about 10 km away to Lavacolla where we started our journey. We get som suggestions fron the guide Elena and walk to Joy Hill. There the fog was down and we could see the Santiago Cathedral. Elena met us there explained few interesting stories. And we waled to Santiago further. All it took 4 hours including vidit to St James (sw Jakub in polih) grave in the cathedral

The place is idyllic, between eucalyptus and pine forests. We had an excellent day typical of the area, with that light rain that gave even more excitement to the experience. I recommend it to everyone.

Unique and unforgettable experience. Thank ELENA for helping us with all kinds of explanations, kindness and sympathy along the way. Beautiful landscapes. 100% recommendable. Thank you very much.
