Ponferrada To Sarria

Day Forty Six. *108.3 K., 67.2 Mi.

Written on June 14, 2014.

*If you are reading this and have walked the Camino Frances you know that it is more than a one day walk from Ponferrada to Sarria. If you have not walked it, common sense would alert you to the fact that we did not walk 67.2 miles in one day. While we were in Astorga we discussed some of the ways that we could shorten our walking days in order to spend more time together. Days off and short walking days due to illness has left us with many miles left to Santiago causing us to walk more miles per day than is good for us at this time.

Today we took a bus from Ponferrada to Lugo, then transferred to Sarria.

We explored Ponferrada while we were waiting to leave.

    • Hi Evan,
      The cost will vary with the season. High season…May to September May cost more if you find that you need to reserve in advance. The Camino Frances is very popular. If you are at least a 3 mile per hour walker you may be able to get to a municipal Albergue in plenty of time to get a bed. The municipal Albergues cost 6 euros per bed….a private Albergue cost 10 euros. Pensions, Hostals, Casa Rurals, and Hotels cost more.
