Spain Tourism showcases The Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago) in a travel trade FAM


The Tourism Office of the Embassy of Spain in India (TURESPAÑA) in collaboration with Axencia Turismo de Galicia (Official Tourist Agency of Galicia – Camino de Santiago) successfully organised and executed a travel trade FAM trip by hosting six agents from 4th to 11th September 2022 to explore the niche tourist segment of the Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago). This group also included one guide who accompanied the group all the time.

The agents were selected based on their merits and their participation varied from across pan-Indian cities. The 7 nights – 8 days extensive niche trip covered the Maritime route of the Apostle, Portuguese way of the Coast and Fisterra-Muxía, French Way, English Way and the final culmination point of Santiago.

The starting and end point of the trip was Santiago and the work itinerary covered all important aspects and nuances of the various routes of Santiago listed above. The group of agents had an enthralling experience and were able to gather many touristic offerings on their routes which they have committed to offering to their frequent customer travellers for their next trip to Spain.

Declared a World Heritage Site and a European Cultural Route by the European Council, the Way of Saint James attracts hikers from all over the world. It’s a breathtaking route that will give travellers an opportunity to reflect. Once there, travellers will walk on the responsible side of life and they will savour each moment like never before.

To travel to The Way of Saint James (Camino de Santiago), there are as many routes as there are pilgrims. From the classic French Way, the green Northern Way, the magical Silver Way and the never-ending English Way, to the oldest of all, the awe-inspiring Primitive Way. And all of the 50 different routes interweave to arrive at the same destination: the majestic Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, a stunning example of Romanesque art.
