The Walk of life - 8 days

This tour is designed to take you on a major section of the Road to Compostela; the French Way, which is the most traditional of all the pilgrims' ways and the best known internationally.

From Valcaros to Puenta la Reina, then visit the Rioja wine region in the comfort of your van.
On this must-go destination for people looking for a rewarding challenge, away from their usual lifestyles, you will get access to numerous cultural highlights, breathtaking sceneries as well as top winemakers and their wineries.

Although this is a "4 days walking tour" rest assured that everything will be taken care of.
A driver & van will follow your group as well as transporting your luggage. Furthermore, if you feel the need to complete a walking segment via transportation, you can simply climb aboard the van as needed.

Walking gives us the opportunity to slow down, to appreciate the world through which we normally race and discover new horizons in a very special atmosphere, filled with spirituality and joy.
