Camino de Santiago: Camino Primitivo

What to Expect
Feel the call to something larger? How about 200 miles?

For thousands of years pilgrims have trekked through the open landscapes and rolling hills of Spain on their way to the Holy City of Santiago. They come from all over the world seeking clarity, seeking wisdom, seeking reprieve. There are several routes that a pilgrim can choose, but none match the raw beauty and patience of the Original Way. This road hosts the fewest number of pilgrims each year; an unprecedented gift for those of us who are looking to escape tourism and move toward space, goodness, and contemplation.

This is not a vacation. This is a quest.

Two Fall 2018 trips will be offered, each trip limited to 5 guests

We will meet in Oviedo, Spain and walk together to Santiago, Spain

Total distance ~ 217 miles

15 days, 14 nights (including one rest day in Lugo)

My 1st Camino. I’m sure there’s more to come, is amazing and wonderful experience. Mixed feeling during the walk, but good.
