To walk or cycle the Camino?
The Camino can be walked or cycled, and though walking is the most popular way to travel, there are many people who cycle.



  • Traditional pilgrim experience.
  • Time to take in the sites and environment.
  • The best way to experience the camaraderie of the Camino.
  • All paths are suitable for walkers.
  • More sociable.
  • Walking the Caminos takes more time.
  • More expensive as walking takes twice as much time as cycling.


  • Takes less time and so can be fitted in a summer holiday.
  • On the Camino Francés it takes 14 days rather than 36 days by foot.
  • Best for the longer southern routes, which have the very long distances between towns.
  • At going at such a high speed, you can miss out on the sociable side of the Camino.
  • Cycling requires more equipment and planning.
  • Some paths and routes are not suitable for cycling and so more time is spent on roads.
