Camino Primitivo

Camino de Santiago - Primitivo

f you like mountain, the nature and hiking , this trail will test you and it will be an unforgettable experience for you.

You will walk, in a small group of 8 hikers, the more of 300 km from Oviedo to Santiago de Compostela. This time your adventure will be called Camino Primitivo. One of the most hardest and beautiful Camino de Santiago. Its mountains, forest, valleys and the local people will make an amazing travel for you. This Camino is less traveled by pilgrims than the Camino Francés and the Camino del Norte giving you a feeling of less agglomeration.

On this beautiful trail in Spain you will enjoy the wonderful views from the mountains, and if the weather let us, we will take the Hospiatles route, one of the best stages of this route. Wild horses are living on the top of this mountains. It will be a lovely memory for you.

We will departure from Madrid, where we will organize a meeting point to collect all the participants. Also if this were the case, we will stop in León to pick up more colleagues from the previous trip on the Camino Vadiniense.

Trips to Dream have organized the itinerary, transfer, accompanying guide tour and a series of measures to have several options during the trip, in this way we give participants the opportunity to choose the options that best suit the entire group; for example, along the way there are different alternative routes, which taking them or not, the stages will be shortened or longer. This will be evaluated at the beginning of each stage by the guide and the participants since each day will be a different day. Because of this reason  we do not reserve accommodation, to enjoy this flexibility.
