Choices for walking the last 100km of the Camino de Santiago
To qualify to receive a Compostela, you must walk at least the last 100 kilometers, or you may bike or ride a horse at least the final 200 kilometers. It is important that you make sure that you have at least 2 stamps (sellos) for each day that you walk in the last 100, or 200 kilometers respectively.
The majority of people choose to walk, do so from Sarria on the Camino Frances. While that is a great choice there are many other options that are less crowded and quite beautiful.
1. Sarria – Camino Frances
2. Ourense – Camino Sanabres
3. Valenca do Minho – Camino Portuguese
4. Ferrol – The Camino Ingles
5. Lugo – The primitivo
6. Monforte de Lemos – Camino de Invierno
There are some very beautiful sites along each way. Consider trying an alternative route.
