I have dearly missed taking guests on The Camino de Santiago during 2020 but I’m dearly hoping we can once again walk the route of the pilgrims in 2021. I know many of you love this tour and are so keen to join me.
The Camino Way is the pilgrimage to the shrine of the Apostle St. James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in north-western Spain, where tradition has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many take up this route as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual/personal growth. Often it is used as a time away for reflection and focussing on a new future. Many pilgrims finish the Camino at Finisterre (known as the end of the world) where pilgrims burned their clothes to represent the start of their new life.
There are a variety of routes and over the last few years I have introduced some of my favourites into my holiday agenda including; The Camino Frances, The Camino Coastal Portuguese Way and The Camino Primitivo.
Be warned once you set off on a Camino you will become addicted.

Camino Francis Sarria to Santiago
New Date: Spring 2022 t0 be announced
Following the yellow arrow for the last 100 kilometres to Santiago
This is a great Camino for those new to the world of following the yellow arrow. The route passes through quaint rural Spanish villages along winding paths and forest trekks. Though a quite popular route I love this last section as it is great for meeting ‘pilgrims’ from all over the world, enjoying short stops in the delightful cafes along the way and getting a taste of what the Camino is all about to each individual and how proud the Spanish are of this well preserved route.
Portuguese Camino Coastal Way from Porto to Santiago
POSTPONED New Date September 2021 to be finalised
258 Kilometre of Determination & Delight
A more challenging route walking along the coast from Porto where we enjoy various paths including sea front causeways, rocky coastal treks and cobbled streets. This route offers alot of historical churches and monuments so perfect for sight seeing along the route. Less travelled than the Camino Frances but perfect for those wanting a longer daily distance- approximately 20 – 30 kilometres with medium ascents/descents. No major hills or strenuous climbs. Just a beautiful walk with a sea breeze and idyllic towns and villages perfect for fabulous rest and refreshment in traditional style along the way.
