4-WALKING THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
The historic Camino de Santiago trails are some of the most famous in the world, taken by thousands of pilgrims of all ages and nationalities since the 9th century. Today, the UNESCO-listed Camino is much more than a pilgrimage, it is a unique cultural journey, a physical challenge and a bonding experience.
There are many different Camino de Santiago routes, covering thousands of miles across Europe, but it is possible to walk shorter stretches of these Camino trails into Santiago de Compostela. You will need to walk at least the last 100kms in order to get your ‘Compostela’ pilgrim certificate in Santiago, which can be easily done over a week.
For young walkers, week walking the Camino de Santiago gives them a precious opportunity to challenge themselves, connect with classmates and experience the local culture and history in a very different light. The Camino is one of our best selling sports tours for schools and clubs.
