Since 1995, we had been helping many independent travelers to custom their trips across Spain, Portugal or Morocco, to whom we design self driving or private chauffeur journeys , and you will be always welcome to contact us for any specifics or assistance for your trip, specially if you are looking for a custom program through Portugal and Morocco.
However in this chapter of our web site, we want to insist on what we consider the best way to combine cities in Spain. Under our Spain by Train section, and under the Custom Train Packages we want to present to independent travelers a great way to be on their own but to have a minimum of services covered and those are the High Speed/ Tran Tickets between the cities you want to visit, a careful selection of the best charming hotels available at the cities you visit and for the number of nights you desire that we will book for you, and optional private guided tours and assistants or English speaking chauffeur services for side trips on each of the cities you visit, to make you feel as in home.
We love trains and this is the reason that we want to include here what we consider among the best train experiences in the world. Under the chapter of Deluxe Rail Roads, we will offer several possibilities to choose from. The journeys are about a week and those have specific departure dates and you will be joining a small group. You will find more specifics in the Transcantabrico and Al-Andalus trains.
Hiking the Camino to Santiago , is still today and since over 1000 years, one of the oldest pilgrimage routes in Europe together with Rome. After the discovery of the relics of St James ( Santiago) knights and pilgrims came from all over Europe to Santiago searching for their indulgences. The Codex Calixtinus, consider the first travelers guide book writen was written for those pilgrims about the traditions, roads, bridges to cross, bandits… Each pilgrimage is different and each pilgrim starts his own pilgrimage once the leave their homes. Today all along the French Road, that starts from the Pyrenees border betweeen France and Spain and ends in Santiago there are many youth hostels for today´s pilgrims. This route takes about 30 days and not many have that amount of time.
We will suggest in our pages 2-3 options for today pilgrims that will include the following: confirmed accomodation in nice inns/hotels/ hostals during your Camino pilgrimage, a piece of lugagge transportation along your Camino every night between your accomodations, the Compostela( a certificated card that Pilgrims have to stamp daily along their road to Santiago in order to obtain at the end of the pilgrimage in Santiago, the Pilgrims Certificate ( Compostela). Dont forget that you need to walk for a minumum of 100 kilometers to Santiago de Compostela and travel assitance alomg your Camino…
