Do it right

Wonderful people on the hike....but do it right. Walkit from SJPDP and carry your own pack! Too many tourists haved their packs carried by local taxis each day. That is CHEATING!

Just came back from a great pilgrimage. We wanted to thank you for setting up our Pilgrimage. Everything, and I mean everything, came off without a hitch! From the speed train to Leon to the Taxi to the airport in Santiago at 4:30 in the morning. We couldn't have been happier with the guide book, the accommodations and the journey!... More

I`ve done the whole Way starting at Roncesvalles (Navarra). It's an amazing experience. People from many countries, landscapes varying from mountains, jungles to flat fields; good food and wine; uncountable historic settlements; many churches and monuments; and a very good sportive challenge. I've done it in 14 days with my wife cycling around 50 to 70 km/day. The Way is... More

Walked the compostela from Oporto, Portugal. Not being a trained walker I had my doubts being able to walk the distance but I did and thoroughly enjoyed it. Fantastic countryside, small lanes/roads mostly, little streams and swimming spots, meeting other peligrinos, eating the local foods and drinking the wine :-). Portugal overall quite a lot cheaper compared to the Spanish... More

From Sarria to Santiago de Compostella, the country side is beautiful and peaceful. Most of the route we took was non asphalt, blessed with good weather, it was most enjoyable. Seeing the country side of Northwest Spain is such a contrast to Madrid, reminds me of the green lush pasture of Pacific Northwest. Definitely worth the walk, Buen Camino!

Camino de Santiago de Compostela, sept 2012. Yes! 800 km on my feet - but mostly on asphalt by big ways! But Spain no love pilgrims. Spain no love ancient, roads, world heritages. Frenetically building Motor ways, traffic high ways, infrastructure - I guess from the EU/UNESCO money they get and don´t give a d... about 200.000 world wide guests... More
