Upon arrival at Madrid airport early in the morning (Spanish time), you will be welcomed by your guide and escorted to private minibus with plenty of room for your group and your luggage. This vehicle will be at your disposal during the whole trip. Then you will enjoy a scenic drive (3h 30 min) to the Spanish countryside up to León, your first stop at the Camino.

León, Spain’s Gastronomy Capital 2018, is a lively historic town and an important milestone along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route. This charming town is also a "must" stop for anyone visiting Northern Spain.

You will check for one night in a stylish boutique hotel just metres away from Gaudí’s “Casa Botines” and León’s spectacular Gothic Cathedral, one of the greatest Cathedrals in Europe.

You will arrive on time for lunch, so you will dive into this amazing town in Northern Spain to discover the biggest concentration of bars in the country where you will enjoy creative and delicious tapas paired with Spanish wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero world leading wine regions.

Brush shoulders with the locals to find the best bites in town for a culinary adventure you will treasure forever. We will visit small and lively bars that serve everything from crispy-on-the-outside-fluffy-on-the-inside patatas bravas, to perfect ham and cheese croquettes, to the most flavoursome chorizo you’ve ever tasted.

After lunch,  you will enjoy a relaxing stroll around Leon’s city centre and a guided tour of Leon’s Gothic Cathedral, a masterpiece dated from the 13th century that will take your breath away. You’ll be transported back in time inside a magical place where you will be touched by the beauty of the sunlight crashing through one of the finest stained-glass windows in the world.

Enjoy this spectacular display of light and colours with the company of hundreds of pilgrims that arrive to this place every day after walking along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route.

For dinner, you will be part of a unique and highly personal experience: a Jamón Ibérico private tasting hand carved by knife in front of you by a Master Ham Carver.

You will learn how to distinguish all the different types of Hams in Spain and you will taste Jamon Ibérico directly from the knife of a qualified professional. Every paper-thin slice of this delicacy has a unique flavour you will have the chance to enjoy as they melt in your mouth.
