    New route from Leiro to Hospital de Bruma/Meson do Vento

    Camino Ingles - new route from Leiro to Bruma. For those soon walking the Camino Ingles I'd like to reassure you about this new route - I think it is excellent and of great benefit to pilgrims. Although there is still the elevation it is over a much longer distance and therefore is much more...

    20 Days on El Camino for scenery and introspection. Best Routes?

    Hello, I leave for my first Camino in about 5 days and I've been spending quite a bit of time researching the routes. My reasons for doing this pilgrimage is to deal with a lot of emotional turmoil that I've been through recently. Thus, though I do love meeting people, I feel as though I won't...

    Portugues vs Frances for the anxious

    Hola! everyone (first post) I had been pretty set on doing the Portugues, either late this year (October/November) or early next (March/April), largely as I saw it as avoiding possible accommodation problems by taking a quieter route. Having read on this forum about the fewer number of...

    Route tracking app (iPhone iOS)

    Hi, I did Camino in 2012 so last year when one of my colleagues was walking it, it was great to see his progress on the big TV at work. He did it by sending his location via Yo app to his friend who manually added his position everyday to Google maps. I tried to find a solution to do it more...

    First timer, help with route

    Hello, My husband and I are headed to Porto to start the Camino on March 27. We have 12 days to walk. We're thinking to bypass the road walking and start in Ponte de Lima. Has anybody started there? How many days does it take to get to Santiago from there? Everything I'm seeing looks like it's...

    Breaking down the 1st Stage

    Is worth a breakdown in the 1 stage of primitivo stopping in Escampero before San Juan de Villapañada? I'm afraid of the 30 km in my ever first day of the Camino Primitivo. Leaving from Oviedo.

    Help for the unfit! How many hours from Orisson to Roncesvalles?

    Hello, all, I'm looking to do my second mini-Camino around the 8th of September (SJPP to Puente dela Reina). Having done Sarria to Santiago a few years ago, I've always wanted to begin in SJPP, and do a little bit over the years to get my Camino "fix" every couple of years. I am about to...

    Route with most nature and least asphalt

    Hi everyone, Two weeks from now I will start the camino Portugese in Porto. I am still a bit in doubt about what route I will take. I have read that there is a lot of road- and cobble-stone walking on the camino Portugese. This is something I would like to avoid. For me the perfect route would...

    Can anyone point me to a GPS or KML file for the EPW. Has anyone used the offline downloaded google maps on this route?

    Suggestions for a rookie :)

    Good day, I'll happen to have some free days in October, from 4th to 15th, and I have serious thoughts about spending them on the Camino Frances (a long dream of mine!) (I'm fitted, I like to trek but never had such an experience before.) Now my question is: what would be the best way to use...
