Experience the essence and spirit of the Camino de Santiago on a gentle hiking adventure. Feel the culture and history under your feet as you tread the ancient paths that lead to Santiago de Compostela. Enjoy the local gastronomy which is a significant feature along the way. We have incorporated Hemingway hotspots along the way and these will help us recapture his days of fly fishing and creating in writer’s corner.

Welcome to Pamplona

We arrive in Pamplona - the capital of Navarra and explore this jewel in the raw. Find out why Hemingway was captured by its year-round festive street life atmosphere, join us on the running of the bulls walkabout while we go bar hopping for gastronomic delights and try our notorious pintxos, relax on a terrace and watch the pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago stroll into town. Join us through the cobbled streets in the heart of the historic quarter to discover 3000 years of history and culture.

A Journey into the Past

Capture the essence and spirit of the Camino de Santiago on a light hiking adventure as we start in Saint Jean Pied de Port roves from its French Basque architecture to a pleasant French cuisine brunch. We explore its 16th century citadel, which played a key role in the Kingdom of Navarra, then transfer to Leopoder, the summit of the Pyrenean pass from where we sonder down to the Roncesvalles Monastery to visit its collegiate church and cloister. All punctuated by a hardy mountain meal welcome dinner paired with with a gourmet immersion into Navarra cuisine and pre-Pyrenee views of green pastures and grazing sheep.

Descending the Pyrenees

A light trek on green paths over a mountain pass with an entirely new landscape of golden wheat fields before us. At the gates of the Pamplona basin where we restart the official Camino, we trek along the ever-widening river Arga, cross the ancient gates of the city - El Portal de Francia and into the citadel of Pamplona. An afternoon of leisure and gastronomy awaits us in the city.

A journey in Medieval Navarra

Our day begins on the foothills of la Sierra del Perdón where we will walk one of the most emblematic paths of the camino, crowning the southern border of the Pamplona Basin. As we tread downward, below is a sea of low-lying woods, rolling hills and golden meadows - far from the Pyrenee landscapes of the day before. Shrines and cornerstones mark our way.

We stop to take a photo on the emblematic bridge of Puente la Reina in Estella, the medieval village of el Reyno offering rich gastronomy and charming narrow streets to discover its unique Romanesque and Gothic architecture.

Castles and wines

We commence our walking journey on the top of iconic hill in the castle of Deio with its spectacular views of south-western Navarra composed of vineyards and olive groves. We visit a winery for a unique wine tasting experience. The camino offers us a territory of vineyards and wheat fields from Los Arcos to Torres del Río - the largest and most powerful Templar settlement in the region to Viana, the city of Kings and Princes.

Reaching the Ebro Valley

We drive to the Rioja capital of Logroño and the wine region of the north for a day of oenological experiences. Logroño is famed for its rich gastronomy, wines and its unique past and heritage, hence completing our route of discovery and spirituality, of heritage and culture, gastronomy and wines from the peaks of the Pyrenees to the Ebro valley.
