Walk the Camino in an organized Group

Alternative 1: Plan it and walk it yourself

The Camino de Santiago Forum was started in 2004, and has since helped many pilgrims plan their walk in Spain. In the forum you will find many veteran pilgrims that can help you with any questions and concerns you may have. Walking the Camino is an adventure that some like to plan themselves, and the forum has helped many do so over the years.

Alternative 2: Organized Camino de Santiago Walk

Then again, there are people that like to have things a bit more organized and prepared. This is what an Organized Group Walk of the Camino de Santiago can offer.

    Aaah. This is how smart Galicians turn the Camino spirit into their own bbusiness. If you walk, just walk on your own. No guidance is needed. prepare yourself you will everywhere kindldly invited and guided FOR FREE, except galicia, this is the last part of the Camino where people even charged for anything possible. And albergues in Galicia are very expensive and mochilla taxi is working for the rich people, offering a backpack carry service from one city to the next. And we, pilgrims, who started from Saint-Jena Pied-du-Port and were after some 700 km, with increasing interest were ran way from the tourist-pilgrims, walking with 2 kg-small backpacks, sleeping in a hotel and earning their distance with an autobus…uhhhh…camino business….

      There are as many different types of pilgrims as the number of intentions to why to walk the Camino. There is not doubt that pilgrims that walk 700 km, stay in albergues and carry their own backpacks have an experience that is both very physical and emotionally challenging. But many others who still would like to be part of this incredible pilgrimage don´t have the time or the physical strength to endure such a journey.There is not a right or wrong way to walk the Camino as long as you make it Your Own. I´m sorry you didn´t have a good experience when walking through Galicia but I can assure you that Galicians are wonderful people who couldn´t be more proud and humble to help anyone make this journey.
