Day 4 Stage 3: Hospital de Órbigo – Astorga 16 km 04:00h

Time to visit another jewel of this Camino de Santiago in short stages! Today the walking is similar to yesterday’s stage but you will visit Astorga, one of the oldest Roman cities all over the Iberian Peninsula. Nowadays it is a very small city in decline but has some amazing buildings like a unique cathedral, one bishop’s palace designed by Antonio Gaudí and a Roman museum.

In Astorga you have almost every service so take advantage of it. You should try the “Cocido Maragato», a traditional and tasty chickpea-based stew that will restore your energy!

Day 5 Stage 4: Astorga – Rabanal del Camino 20 km 05:00h

Another beautiful day in your Camino de Santiago in short stages! Today you will be walking parallel to the road and you will see a lot of signals so it’s difficult to get lost. The path is fairly flat so it’s effortless if you are used to walking.

You will cross several villages so you can stop if you want to rest while having a coffee or whatever you need. In Rabanal there is a special dinner waiting for you!

Day 6 Stage 5: Rabanal del Camino – Molinaseca 24 km 06:00h

Today’s route is one of the hardest in the Camino de Santiago in short stages. You will go uphill first, climbing around 400 metres but with a smooth slope and later you will go downhill for a while. The descent is steeper than the ascent, and longer so don’t be too confident or your knees could pay it. 

You have one spot in this stage that it’s a mandatory stop, the “Cruz de Fierro”. It’s an ancient column in which every pilgrim must put a stone at the base as a tradition.

Day 7 Stage 6: Molinaseca – Cacabelos 19,5 km 04:45h

Easy and relaxing stage to give you a breathing space. Today you will visit Ponferrada, a city with every service and a wonderful Templar Castle. It is the second most important city in the province of León so you should go for a walk here to see the castle and some modern architecture like the energy museum or the Rosaleda tower. 

The rest of the stage will be a beautiful walk between green mountains and some nice villages.

FAQs

How long do I have to walk for a day?
We have designed this experience trying to do 20 km at most but there are some stages where you have to walk a little bit more because there are few accommodations along the way.
Where do I sleep?
You will sleep in rural hotels and hostels along the way.
What do I carry with me?
You walk with your backpack. You will need good walking shoes and depending on the season you could need warm clothing to avoid the cold. But don’t forget some lightweight clothing and your flip flops to rest! During the day you need enough water, something to eat, sunscreen and a raincoat. Additionally you can take a walking stick but it’s not necessary.
What happens if I have an accident or something unforeseen happens?
You can contact us anytime 24/7. We will see how we can help you.
