The Walking

Walking the Camino involves average daily distances of about 14 miles and follows well marked paths with good surfaces. Some days are long and where possible we offer a split with accommodation midway. In more remote regions, where accommodation is sparse, this is not always possible. We provide a step by step guide to the trek and location of your overnight hotel along with other supporting notes such as language and history. You may wish to spend an extra night in one of the cities exploring its architecture and culture, especially Santiago at the journey’s end to relax and reflect on your journey. On rare occasions, we offer a short transfer to avoid less attractive sections but if you wish to walk every step it can be arranged! We show the route as five separate sections starting in St Jean Pied-de-Port and ending in Santiago de Compostela, which may be combined as desired. Each section has a brief summary followed by our standard itinerary with approximate distance, ascent and descent.


The Experience

Without doubt this holiday is about more than the usual joys of walking! The Camino may be walked  for religious or non-religious reasons or perhaps just the desire to hop out of the fast lane to reflect on life and refresh the soul. For whatever reason, a very special atmosphere arises from the comradeship quickly established between pilgrims of many nationalities - each walking for their own personal reasons. With our fully flexible stages and accommodation grades you can walk all or part of the Camino – many walk a week each year until completed….and then start over again! The experience is recommended for everyone from Church Groups to the solo walker, all joining together at the Cathedral in Santiago to witness or participate in the daily Pilgrims’ Mass – an intensely memorable and moving experience.

Variations

Our basic itineraries can be varied when possible. You may make the walking days shorter by adding additional nights, take rest days in one of the existing stops or stay longer at the beginning or end to explore the historical and vibrant cities. Just contact us with your wishes and we will provide a quotation.

Luggage Transfers

Luggage may be transported from each hotel to the next enabling you to travel with a day rucksack. Unlike our other treks, baggage transfer is an optional extra as many Perigrinos (Pilgrims) prefer to travel light and carry their own. See price section for costs.

Walk Grading

Challenging with Moderate option. Total for standard itinerary:- Ascent 1960m, Descent 1670m, 42 miles.
