    Vegan on Camino Del Norte

    I walked Frances last year as a vegan and whilst it was sometimes tricky (and I lost quite a bit of weight.. I think most of my calories came from the wine!) I mostly managed to eat fairly well by a combination of tracking down veggie albergues&restaurants, veggie paellas, and cooking my own...

    Vegan on the Camino!

    Hi folks, I am due to start the Camino next weekend. I am a vegan though! I wondered do cafes and restaurants serve vegan options? E.g salad with no dairy, chickpea dishes, gazpacho? If the worst comes to the worst I may have to eat eggs and cheese I guess. I’d rather not but if needs must...

    New vegetarian albergue in Reliegos

    Hola! As a vegan peregrina I was extremely thrilled to find this new place today. The owner said it just opened two months ago and I couldn't find any information about it in English. It's called El Albergue De Ada and you can follow the arrows that will lead you there - but it's in c/ Real 42...

    Hello all. I will be traveling with a vegetarian next year and I am wondering if there will be any availability of pilgrim menus for her or if we should plan on making other eating arrangements. Also, does anyone have tips/hints/advice for vegetarians traveling the Camino? Thanks all!
