I walked part of the Camino Norte and Camino Primitivo to Santiago. This was the toughest thing I have ever done but probably more rewarding than anything I have ever done. This is not a journey for the faint of heart or those that think the Camino Frances is challenging. The markings are few and far between in areas and... More

First night of first afternoon on the Camino from Sarria to Morgade. Tired and wet and rounded the corner to find Ray and Peter and the wonderful hospitality of the Casa Morgade: open fires, wonderful fresh food and beautiful wine, and a beautiful bedroom with fantastic views. THANK YOU for starting our pilgrim journey in such a wonderful way. My... More

I just finished biking the Camino Portuguese from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. Although a wonderful experience, do not consider doing this (the true Way) unless you are a dedicated, experienced Mountain Biker. A lot of the path was extremely difficult and beyond my riding level (I learned that day by day). At one point I had to carry my... More

Pilgrims must walk the last 100 km to Santiago de Compostela, so even if you only have a couple weeks (or less), it's still plenty of time to complete your pilgrimage, meet other pilgrims and experience possibly one of the most singular events that can be had. Pilgrims have been walking to Santiago almost continuously for the last 1200 years... More

There are a lot of much cheaper options out there. Mundiplus charges double of what the trip should cost. A 100% mark up from a travel agency is way too high and it should not happen. I should had done my research more thoroughly and that is my mistake. But still, they should not do it. I paid 1420 Euros... More

My husband and I did the Camino de Santiago tour with Walks in Spain, in September 2013 and were so impressed with the care and attention to detail that this father and son company provided, that we recently did their Orange Blossom Coast walk. The restaurants we ate at on both walks were fantastic! We ate home made, authentic Spanish... More

I walked the first six days of the french way last may with three of my sisters. While the notion of pilgrimage is an ancient one none of us are terribly religious but i think we all took away something from the experience. For me it was the beauty and isolation of the basque country and the opportunity to see... More

We walked the Camino from SJPDP to Santiago de Compestala in September/October 2014 over 33 days. There is so much I can say about this. We documented our experience at www.russandjan.com.

I did the 500 mile walk to celebrate a landmark birthday, and to show my grandchildren that one is never too old to be active. What a life-changing experience! Except for giving birth, it was the best thing I have ever done. I walked alone, but met many wonderful people along the way. I took 38 days to complete the... More
