Join us on an adventure that explores the best known of all the pilgrims’ ways to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
In a joint fundraiser with St Michael’s Hospice, The Sara Lee Trust will explore the eighth and final section of the French Way, the most traditional and best known of all the pilgrims’ ways to Santiago de Compostela. During the 5-day walk we will traverse the hilly landscapes of Galicia, passing numerous points of cultural and historical interest along the way.
1st - 8th June 2024
5 day trek
The UNESCO The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is an extensive network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, the UNESCO World Heritage Site in north-west Spain.
Today, thousands of people walk the Camino de Santiago for many different reasons; spiritual, cultural and adventurous or simply such as wanting to learn about the history of this ancient trail and as a way to get fit and spend time outdoors. This is not a religious tour, but can symbolise a time of reflection, learning and fresh starts.
Rebecca said, "The rewards of fundraising and getting fit for this challenge have changed my life already in such a short space of time. I have learnt so much and the pounds are dropping away in training. I have met such a lovely bunch of people who have been supporting me with the fundraising, I feel mentally and physically stronger at 45 than I have done in such a long time. This challenge has crossed my path naturally and was what I clearly needed in my life right now."
The trek also offers the chance to commemorate a loved one by walking in their memory. On the last stretch of our trek, Monte del Gozo (Mount Joy) provides a special moment where the long-awaited sight of the great towers of the Cathedral come into view. Here, our group will take a moment to reflect, which can be emotional for some. It is a beautiful opportunity to honour your loved one on your Camino journey.
