Updated 30TH March
On 17th March the Government advised against all non-essential travel overseas, initially for a period of 30 days, due to the current Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, the Walk The Camino team is working hard to contact all clients travelling soon and reschedule all trips due to depart by 30th April .
We understand that the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), is causing concern for everyone. During this unprecedented situation and we wish to assure you that the health and well being of our valued customers, our team and our many partners on all our Camino tours is our priority.
The situation is changing on a daily basis and will continue to develop over the coming weeks. The majority of our accommodation, transport and service providers have already closed in order to protect their staff and customers.
We are monitoring the advice of the UK Government, specifically the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the WHO (World Health Organisation) and taking guidance from ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents).
