"Buen Camino" is a phrase that gets more sense after some kilometers walking aparently alone, but always surounded by pilgrims from all around the world. It does not matter the reason you choose to do it, El Camino de Santiago has a personal meaning and very unique answers for everyone. I found people doing it for loosing weight, some others... More

It was business as usual this autumn on both the French Camino from O Cebreiro as well as on the Portuguese Camino from Tui. It will be interesting to see how the season kicks off next year as there have been some important changes on both ways, with other minor changes panned for 2017. Both Survival Guidebooks for the Camio... More

We walked from Ages, through Burgos and on through Pallencia to Sahagun with six days of walking. This is one of the most rural, remote areas of the Camino through the Meseta. This time of year the fields are full of wildflowers and very beautiful. The villages we stayed in were tiny. This section of the Camino is well worth... More

This was a trip that my wife and I had been planning to do for the past few years, after retiring earlier this year our opportunity arrived. We planned our itinerary,booked our accommodation(booking.com) and baggage forwarding(Camino facile) before leaving home. Everything went without a hitch. This is a great walk but you do need to be prepared.You need to be... More

I have never walked this distance before and had my doubts whether I could do it day after day but I did and will treasure the experience. Myself and three friends started at Sarria on the French way of St. James. It was approx. 110 kms. to Santiago de Compestello. We had perfect weather. A little misty in the mornings... More

I first walked a portion of the French Way in October of 2015. We used a wonderful, wonderful company run by a father and son called "Walks in Spain". We walked for a week having our hotels, some meals and lugguage transport. Although with a small group we hiked independently and experienced the most wonderful vacation I could have ever... More

800 km from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostella! What an experience, it was so hard because the weather was so bad on the first day, but the people we met warmed us from the inside. I walked with my husband, it was his dream and my fascination, if it's on your bucket list then go and... More

My sister and I walked the final 115km of the Camino Portuguese. was a wonderful experience. For the most part very well marked. the locals helpful, experienced wonderful foods, friendship in the route. would do again. Some parts are a little more trying (hills, rocky path, etc) but a true pilgrimage for me. Weather was great!
