Day Tours in Galicia from Santiago de Compostela
Make the most of your journey along the Camino de Santiago by adding a few days before, during or after to discover a new city, region or to indulge in a new exciting activity.
In 2018, pilgrims from 130 different countries reached Santiago de Compostela after accomplishing the Camino de Santiago. This means many of you come from very far away and sometimes simply reaching the Camino de Santiago is a journey by itself or could be your chance to visit Spain and even Europe.
Therefore, to help you make most of your time in the Old Continent, we selected day trips, guided city tours and unique activities near the Camino or in the main European touristic hubs that you can easily add to your journey for an even more memorable experience.
