The Camino in Spain is one of the world's most famous pilgrimages in the world and there is certainly a reason for that. On the one hand, the nature of the area is beautiful and varied, but the historical dimension of the trip - that is, walking in the footsteps of pilgrims over several centuries makes the trip even more exciting. Every year, there are thousands of walkers who walk the Camino and the joint project shared between them all - reaching Santiago de Compostela - means that there is a kind of common bond between all the walkers. It is a very special experience.
Which way on the Camino
Most pilgrims who walk the Camino walk the last 100km of "The French Way", which is from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. The route offers easy walking where most can join. There are almost as many who choose to go "The Portuguese Way", which goes from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. The latter walk on the Camino is a two-week walking holiday, so there are several who choose to only take the last part of the trip from Baiona to Santiago de Compostela. Both versions are a great experience.
The Camino is many different routes. For example, it is also normal to go for an extension and walk from Santiago to Finisterre. This extends the journey by 4-5 days. The Camino is an experience that we think all walkers should try at least once. No matter how experienced you are in hiking, you will be able to join us here and all our guests will report that it has been an experience of a lifetime.
In the old days it was most common to stay in hostels when walking the Camino. Of course, there is still a lot who do that, but it has become more common to stay in small hotels instead. On our holidays we use only small specially selected hotels, where all rooms have their own bath and toilet. We think the experience of walking the Camino will be best that way.
