Buen Camino!

At Crossroads Travel your comfort after a long day of walking is our focus. Hence extensively researched accommodation options on Camino de Santiago are a part of our packages.

Our choice is based on location.

We personally book your rooms, and for this reason, we know exactly where they are located. Our primary aim is for you to be in the vibe of Camino amongst the other pilgrims, restaurants, bars, and cafes.

We want you to be welcomed and taken care of.

Meeting regularly with the owners/management to discuss our client needs ensures your hosts have direct personal contact with us. If any needs arise we can manage them immediately.

Finally, we choose accommodation in charming, iconic hotels and rural Casas.

The number of stars is not our criterion. A comfortable room and a private bathroom come first. In some of the more humble areas of Camino de Santiago, we offer you the best of what is possible. So the longer your Camino the more varied your accommodation will be. This is part of the charm of being on Camino de Santiago, remember you are not on a holiday with multiple options in one spot. Fortunately, with options in the bigger cities, we can throw in a few nights with lots of stars for indulgence. After all, you deserve to have a soak in a spa. Likewise, an indoor pool doesn’t hurt.  Note: There are a few extraordinary options off the Camino if “humble” is not your thing. Also If we locate you outside of the Camino you will have contact with the owners who will pick you up from the Camino and deliver you back to the same spot the next morning. We will discuss this with you when booking.

Book 60 days in advance

Camino de Santiago is a unique destination with limited quality accommodation ON Camino hence we advise booking at least 60 days in advance.

Examples of our chosen accommodation.

Images below are examples of what you can expect from your booking. Tailor-made Packages are available if you wish to stay 5-star all the way.  Please note: we adhere to the same standard when you book accommodation with us pre and post-Camino in Spain and Portugal.  

 

There are many options, depending on where you are departing from, however, these are our suggestions based on the easiest connections to the Camino once in Spain:

Fly to Madrid and catch the train to Sarria.

Fly to Santiago and catch a Train or Bus to Sarria
