Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago is a long-distance pilgrimage trail with a legendary history and sacred roots. This ancient network of medieval paths leads to the tomb of Saint James in the Cathedral of Santiago in Northern Spain. At the heart of this historic path you’ll find a rich cultural heritage, beautiful landscapes, and charming villages that welcome people from all walks of life.

There are many ways to take part in the Camino. The most popular route is the Camino Frances, you hike from France to Spain crossing the border at the Pyrenees before continuing to Santiago. Whether you’d like to hike a portion of the route, the final stage, or complete the entire Camino, we've got you covered. Another option is the traditional Camino Portugués or the coastal route to Santiago, an immersive journey in rural Portugal and Spain. For a more challenging and less traveled route, the Camino del Norte offers a truly authentic experience.

It is a truly special experience to hike the Camino independently of a guided group, no matter which route you choose. Whether you are solo or going with loved ones or friends, you will share the comradery with fellow pilgrims and friendly locals along the trail. Hike the Camino for a sense of accomplishment, or to embark on a journey to explore a different country. Whatever your reason, we’re here to support you every step of the way!
