 – EL CAMINO WALK , SPAIN –

Pilgrim Journey – Date to be Advised

Camino de Santiago… have you watched the movie yet ‘THE WAY’… I’ve had clients asking about this ‘excursion’ (well, its not an excursion) it’s about peace, it’s about quiet, it’s about meeting new friends AND IT’S AT TIMES ALL ABOUT SORE FEET.

The thought of putting walking shoes on and trudging across Spain really was not too appealing to my feet and back. Alas, I have changed my mind. We are now in preparation for setting out in 2015… see the itinerary on my Spain tours page.  I would love you to join us.

The Road to Compostela comes out of the past and stretches through a thousand year history of the pilgrim’s journey. During the Middle Ages the Shrine of St. James became the number one pilgrimage site outside of Rome. According to tradition, St. James the Apostle travelled to Spain in 40 AD to spread the Gospel to the far west. He died a martyr after returning to Jerusalem. His remains were brought back to Spain and are today held in the high altar of the Cathedral. Countless pilgrims have made the journey from Madrid to the Pyrenees to Compostela along an historic path which has changed little since the time of the beginnings around the year 1000. Despite wars, floods and famine through the ages, the Old Pilgrim’s Way has survived and at its end Santiago de Compostela has earned the distinction of being a true pilgrimage destination. Modern day pilgrims who walk this sacred road become, whether they know it or not, a part of history.

What El Camino means to a traveller can be different to each pilgrim.  It does not matter your Religion, be it agnostic, Catholic or what ever, following paths each day contemplating the surrounding hills you will find your own truth.

There are Pilgrims who walk for days, there are some who return time after time to continue their ‘walk’. Some Pilgrims stay in hostels or dormitories, some sleep in roadside shelters and some in Religious houses. You will find some Pilgrims may chose to travel by horseback or cycle.

On our journey we will walk 20 – 24klm per day at times (in total approx 300 – 350klm over 12/13 days). Based on 3-4 star Hotels and Religious house accommodation throughout with breakfast and dinner daily. Along with our ‘Miscellaneous inclusion’  is the use of a deluxe motor coach with driver/ local escort. Our luggage will be waiting for us at our accommodation in the evening. The coach is also there for those needing respite for a few kilometers.
