If your answer is YES, you are more that welcome to join our international small group of hikers, wich will walk trough one of the most beautifuls Camino de Santiago. This time, our adventure will take 12 days, (9 o 10 walking), the 220km of this Camino Vadiniense.

But, What is the Camino Vadiniense?

The Camino Vadiniense, or Jacobean trail trough Liébana, is the trail that connects the Camino de Santiago -Camino del Norte, from San Vicente de la Barquera, on the Cantabrian cost , with the Camino Francés, on Mansillas de las Mulas,at few kilometers from León. The striking thing about this route, apart from its incredible beauty of the landscape surrounded by high mountains, valleys, rivers and forests,is that you will enjoy walking, on the early stages, through the Camino Levaniego, where we will pass near the Santo Toribio Monastery. This monastery has an important t cultural, historical and religious value.

Trips to Dream have organized the itinerary, transportation, 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. That is why we do not reserve accommodation, to enjoy this flexibility.

If you want continue walking more days until reaching Santiago de Compostela, you can join our next trip, a few days after this one ends. We will hike trough the Camino Primitivo, from Oviedo to Santiago. The Camino Primitio is one of most beautiful and harder caminos too. Click next link for more information.
