WALK THE CAMINO

Camino Frances Gentle Steps

Walk the Camino at your own pace in short easy stages. We have considerable experience tailoring walks for people who can manage shorter distance walks, but do not wish to walk at a fast pace or take on long distances. You don't need to be at peak fitness to enjoy walking the Camino. We will tailor a personalised itinerary to suit you. Take your time, enjoy the scenery and soak up the special Camino atmosphere - at your own pace.

Gentle Steps Camino, walk shorter sections at your own pace

Walk the Camino at your own pace. We believe you should "Walk the Way, Your Way". We realise that each person has their own particular requirements, abilities and fitness levels.

We will take time to understand your requirements and create a personalised itinerary designed specifically around you. 

We also design itineraries for couples or friends, where one walks the Camino and the other doesn't.

If you are concerned about carrying too much weight on your rucksack, you don't need to worry. We provide reliable 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.

Santiago de Compostela As Your Base

We also design Camino experiences out of Santiago. Full day and half day tours are available around the Camino and the wider Galician area. Many of our couples and groups wish to combine gentle short walks with sightseeing excursions and gastronomy experiences.

For further details about our slow walks of the Camino de Santiago, just get in touch. We will be happy to create a personalised itinerary designed specifically around your needs and interests.

Transfer to Cape Finisterre and the Atlantic Coast

You can also spend 2 or 3 nights on Cape Finisterre where there are short walks to be enjoyed as well as a two day mini itinerary to Muxia.

Enjoy the Camino de Santiago at Your Own Pace

This is the classic and most popular route - the Camino Frances or French Way. We call our slow travel version our "Gentle Steps" edition. It's the same route with fewer daily miles to walk, more overnight stops and you are eligible for the Compostela certificate. We will tailor the walking tour to suit your personal requirements.

For those who are looking for a new slow travel Camino experience, we also organise slow travel version of the Via de la Plata, which is often referred to as "The Quiet Camino".

 

The main highlights of our slow walk of the Camino de Santiago are:

Experience Europe's most important and ancient pilgrimage route

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.

Anne Corrigan, UK, walking the Camino Frances

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and found the organisation excellent. We were also impressed by the friendliness and welcome we received everywhere. The information pack was useful and contained all the information we needed. So many, many thanks again for your kindness, efficiency and help in giving us such a good holiday.
