The Holiday Inn Express Bilbao is the perfect location to use at the start or end of the walk, with its excellent proximity and central location to all transport routes for the Camino De Santiago walk. The hotel has very good accommodation and is very popular with tourists and walkers taking part in the Camino De Santiago walk.
There is a variety of options of doing the walk, many people choose to do the pilgrimage in stages days. The Confraternity of St James (csj.org.uk) is the best place to get all the information you require about the options and routes that are available for the walk before you start and will help you to put a plan together of what you would like to do. We would also recommend that you have a look at the Spanish (spain.info) and Galician (turgalicia.es) tourist information office websites. Local and national tour operators can organise fully guided or self-guided walking trips including the Camino Ways.
You can choose different ways to do the walks the Camino Francés, from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela – around 70 miles. But if you prefer to walk a shorter distance or have a limited amount of time there are several, shorter routes too. A five-night walk covering the Camino Finisterre, where you actually start in Santiago de Compostela and walk to Finisterre on the Atlantic coast, a distance of around 55 miles, stopping off at fabulous beaches. Another option is to use the Galician tourist board’s Iacobus service, which takes you to the starting point every day, picks you up in the afternoon and takes you to a rural guesthouse. All the pilgrimage routes are covered, including the Primitivo path from the city of La Coruña on the coast to Santiago de Compostela, a distance of 46 miles which you walk three days.
