The Camino Way 2019

07 September, 2019

Our annual Camino trip to Northern Spain to take on the last 112km takes place from 7th - 14th Sept 2019. Join us for this hugely enjoyable week and take on the challenge of walking six days while drinking in the wonderful culture and the incredible rustic landscape of the Galician region.

The trip is open to anyone of any age. Come on your own, bring a friend/s or rope in your partner! It's important to mention that everyone is free to make the journey at their own pace and in their own time - everyone is welcome.

Each day, following breakfast we set off walking at 9am with stops mid-morning and at midday for coffee and light lunch respectively in the many cafes and albergues that line the route.

We arrive to our accommodation - a mix of family run guesthouses and two and three star hotels with all rooms ensuite - by mid afternoon. Your luggage will be there wating for you, and you are free to spend a few hours at your leisure before we meet again for dinner. Accommodation is offered on a shared room basis but there will be a few single rooms available (for an additional single supplement) if required.

The weather can be similar to Ireland but generally it is several degrees hotter. Rain and sun can be part of the mix so you need to pack the rain gear and the sun lotion. Please note, we walk, on average, 20km per day regardless!

On the final day, we walk into the fantastic city of Santiago de Compostela. Our arrival to the square in front of St James Cathedral - the Praza do Obradoiro - marks the physical end to our pilgrimage. The end of our spiritual journey is marked later that evening at the Pilgrim's mass in the Cathedral of St James - a remarkable and moving event for people of all (and no) denominations.

The following morning our group is free to wander the medieval streets of the old city before we head to the airport at lunchtime for our return to Dublin.
