The Camino, the Wild, the Colorful and the Beautiful

Camino de Santiago has given Spain the reputation of most popular country to walk through – from the Mesetas to the Pyrenees, from the Portugese border to the Galicia, from the Cantabrian Sea to Pamplona.

But there are also the Alpujarras, the wild and colorful Andalusian mountains; Tenerife and La Gomera, suspended between fire and earth with its rain forests and volcanic slopes;

The Canary islands, with their rugged cliffs plummeting into the Atlantic sea, almond trees and prickly pears, whitewashed villages dotted with palm trees and bouganvilleas.

The Way to Santiago


The most famous camino

The most narrated, celebrated, and dreamt-about path: the Camino de Santiago

Camino de Santiago is undeniably the world's most famous pilgrimage route, immortalized in films, songs, and books. The most renowned part? Definitely the last 100 km from Sarria to Santiago – the most coveted stretch because it earns you the 'testimonium,' a certificate of pilgrimage completion.

Alpujarras, Unexpected Spain


Andalusia's wild side

In everyone's mind, Spain equals vibrant nightlife, sunshine, and fun. But if Barcelona, Madrid, or Ibiza aren't your thing and you're up for some new scenery, a trip through the mountains of the Alpujarras, along the southwestern ridge of the Andalusian Sierra Nevada, is definitely for you. The charm of this Arabic legacy remains, here at the perfect elevation for a true alpine experience.

Join us for a journey to the Alpujarras

Tenerife and La Gomera


Green Heart, Volcanic Soul

Tenerife and La Gomera, both born from fire with their volcanic origins, present entirely different landscapes to explorers: Tenerife with its stark, moon-like terrain, and La Gomera with its lush, verdant valleys. This journey introduces you to both, along with their unique ecosystems.

The lesser known Caminos


One destination, many routes

The most famous route is along the so-called French Way, but there are many paths to the Cathedral of Santiago. From the Northern Way, meandering through the forests of Green Spain and along the Cantabrian Sea, to the Primitive Way starting in Oviedo, and the Sanabria Way beginning in the city of Ourense.
