Millions of people of all ages and walks of life have been walking the Camino for over a thousand years

The most frequent question our clients ask us is "How fit should I be to walk the Camino de Santiago?"

Firstly, don't be worried about not being fit enough. Millions of people of all ages and walks of life have been walking the Camino for over 1000 years. That said, to avoid struggling with a daily walk that is just too much for you we would recommend the following preparation:

  • Decide how far you are able to walk comfortably on a daily basis given your present lifestyle.
  • Decide how much time you have for your Camino walk, and ideally where your start and finish points will be.
  • We can then help you calculate just how far you will have to walk each day to reach your goal. It may be that you have to revise your planes, or undertake the following action;
  • In the build up to your walk, start gradually increasing the distance you walk each day, as well as varying the terrain you cover. This will greatly improve your stamina.

We recommend to all our clients planning to walk for two weeks or more that they build into their itinerary a rest day once a week. Over many years and quite a few Camino walks, we have witnessed other walkers coming unstuck as they try to cover too much ground in too little time. So far this has never been the case with any of our clients. They have all arrived in Santiago with body and feet intact.

Walk the Camino in 3 days or 3 months - you choose the pace

We believe you should 'Walk The Way, Your Way'. We realise that each person has their own requirements in terms of what they want to focus on during the journey. We take the time to understand your requirements and create a personalised itinerary designed specifically around your needs. We consider your walking ability, time-frame and budget. We have considerable experience tailoring walks of all lengths - even up to one hundred days in length.

We move your baggage from one accommodation to the next as you walk

If you are concerned about carrying too much weight in your rucksack, you don't need to worry. We provide fully insured and secure luggage transfers for our clients walking the Camino de Santiago. This daily service is organised so that all you have to worry about is carrying a small day sack with your essential items. Your bag will be waiting for you on arrival each day.

We also design relaxing walk & drive tours along the Camino

Every year we design many self-drive itineraries giving our clients the freedom to discover the Camino de Santiago by car. We often propose routes for couples and groups wanting to combine gentle walks with tours to highlights cultural attractions on and around the Camino. We also design itineraries for couples where one walks the Camino and the other drives.

We enjoyed our holiday very much - it was a wonderful experience. Something completely different! The organisation of the holiday was spot-on. You really couldn't have done a better job. The whole thing was perfectly tailored to our needs. It's hard to express in an e-mail how good it all was.
