Hike Camino Primitivo trail
Medieval Pilgrim’s Route is considered to be the most scenic of the many sections of the entire Camino de Santiago, which attracts thousands of travellers each year not only because of its sacred value, but also because of its enchanting mountain scenery and breath-taking natural terrain.
We will follow in the footsteps of the pioneer of this journey, King Alfonso II of Austria all the way from the ancient city of Oviedo to the medieval Santiago de Compostela, where the Apostle Jacob is buried. The first part of the trip will take us through the mountains of Cantabria, where we will cover long distances with big altitude changes. Physical challenges will be rewarded by beautiful mountain landscapes authentic Spanish villages, pristine trails, ancient monasteries and castle ruins.
After our long hikes, we will have an opportunity to feed our appetite with local gastronomic “delights” – Galician cheeses, wines, sausages and ciders from the Asturian region – which will only add even more fun to our trip through this very unique part of Spain.
For our adventure to not be forgotten over the years, as a reward for finishing this 250-kilometre-long challenge, you will get a new passport (certificate of finishing the route), more valuable and significant than any souvenir that can be bought in Spain.
Join us in our adventure and we can promise – Santiago’s path leads not only through centuries-old secrets, but also on the road to getting to know yourself better.
Despite the fact that the backpack will have a minimal weight (we will buy food during the hikes) and only a light sleeping bag will be needed from the equipment, this route will require strength and comfortable trekking shoes as it is planned to hike 20-30 km per day on mountainous terrain. Nevertheless, the difficulty of the hike is moderate with moderate changes in altitude.
Throughout the route we will spend the night in the Albergue – Camino Santiago pilgrimage accommodation. Most of the Albergues are modest in appearance, but have all the needed amenities, such as shower, kitchen and lounge area. The weather is projected to be very pleasant; addition of suitable footwear and waterproof clothing must be carefully considered.

Day Trip plan
Day We will meet at the Madrid bus station, from where we will get on a bus to Oviedo – a city which in the 8th century was founded by monks. This is where the road to the Camino Primitivo begins from the iconic San Salvador Cathedral. On this day we are preparing for the trip – we receive our credentials – pilgrim passports, in which we will have to collect stamps every day for finishing a certain part of the route. Later we will also walk around the historic city and get into our first Albergue.
We’ll get in touch with you.
Winter hike in the snowy Polish Tatras. In four days we will summit Kasprowy Wierch, walk through the marvelous Valley of Five Lakes, visit Morksie Oko and spend fantastic time in the mountains.
Eleven days in the Swedish Lapland, surrounded by untouched nature. Rough Nordic tundra together with Scandinavian weather make this destination not the easiest for vacation, but the experience beyond the polar circle is something unique and priceless.
