Have you heard about the Camino de Santiago and even considered walking one of its itineraries (yes, there are multiple routes!)? But you do not have the possibility to take a few weeks off. Or are you doubting whether you are able to hike 20-30 km for multiple days in a row? This tour offers you the possibility to be a pilgrim for a day by walking part of the ‘Camino Primitivo’.

Among the many ‘Caminos’ that can be walked nowadays, the Camino Primitivo is the oldest one. The first one to walk this route was the Asturian King Alfonso II at the beginning of the 9th century, after the discovery of the tomb of the Apostle James. Most of the current route still follows this ancient path. We will follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims by walking the first stage of the Camino Primitivo.

Please check the group discount button for more info on the prices per group. The minimum number of people required to do the tour is 2. If you want to do the tour alone, you can, but you have to pay the price for 2 persons. If you want to do this tour with more than 8 persons, please consult us for a customized proposal. 

The first part of the route leads through Oviedo and starts at the cathedral. As soon as we leave the city, we walk through the typical hilly Asturian landscape with its pastures, small streams and bigger rivers. Along the route, we will pass some typical pilgrim albergues and a chapel where you can stamp your own- and probably first- pilgrim credential!

The second part of the route leads through forests and along pastures and Asturias’ largest river Nalon. Along the way, the guide will share specific insights with you about the Asturian history, gastronomy and nature. Today’s tour end in lovely town Grado, from where we’ll take the taxi back to Oviedo (or you can choose to stay overnight and continue your pilgrimage).

The trip cost includes

  • An official 'Credencial del Peregrino' in which you'll receive your first stamps today!
  • Private transportation back to Oviedo
  • Casadiella (typical Asturian pastry)
  • 1 bottle of water
  • 1 bag of local potato chips
  • Fruit

The trip cost excludes

  • Expenses (food, souvenirs) along the way

Faqs

Is this tour suitable for children?

This stage of the Camino Primitivo is rather long and challenging. Therefore, we recommend to only walk this tour when you are 16 years or older (accompanied by an adult), have walking experience, a good condition and the proper outfit. In case you want to experience part of the Camino Primitivo with your kids, we recommend our 0.5 day activity.

What do I need to bring?

First of all, an open attitude to experience a bit of the ‘Camino feeling’ and connect to fellow pilgrims! More practically, it is important to bring the following items:
Appropriate (hiking) shoes; comfortable, rainproof clothes; sunscreen and something to protect your head; additional food and drinks for the way; money for food and drinks on the way (optional).

Do I need to be trained to be able to participate in this tour?

This tour requires a good physical condition and some hiking experience. What makes the tour especially challenging are the severe weather conditions (heat, heavy rain), which requires a proper outfit and protection. In case you doubt whether this tour is suitable for you, we advice you to check our ‘Taste of the Camino’ half-day tour.
