    Positive "virtual" plans for your pilgrimages in 2021/2022

    Hey everyone, I have seen several virtual Camino threads and decided to start a similar concept for planning our upcoming journeys. The situation right now is still pretty unsure etc... Yet, we all have some idea in our heads about the potential schedule of when the world is gonna open up again...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    As promised, today I am starting a planning thread for the Camino Olvidado. There are many good sources for the Olvidado. Ender’s guide in English. The Camino Olvidado website with stages, tracks, and pictures. This forum’s sub-forum on the Olvidado. Another Olvidado website, in Spanish...

    Any interest in a new "virtual camino?"

    You may have seen some of the deep dive stage planning threads we've done while in lockdown -- Vdlp/Sanabrés, Levante, Invierno, Viejo, and most recently the Lana. Since it looks like we still have more time to stew in our camino juices before getting back out there, I'm wondering if there is...

  5. Scarlet Fez - virtual Camino

    Have seen the virtual Camino advertised via and in theory sounds like an excellent idea to generate much needed money for those owning and running the albergues to get back on their feet for the future. I am more than happy to relive the memories of my 2016 Camino Frances...

    Virtual Camino - tracking app

    Our Church is planning a virtual Pilgrimage to Bethlehem during Advent through to Christmas. Does anyone know of an App that, when we key in our own daily mileage, it automatically plots our distances in our route. I faintly remember some organisation had this on the Camino, but it may cost a...

    Who's for a Virtual Lana?

    A number of us have been walking virtual Caminos since the spring — and find it quite a wonderful diversion, as well as being the perfect planning exercise for when an actual Camino is possible. We just finished walking the Levante and there is a buzz to now do a virtual Lana. Anyone...

    My virtual Camino

    Virtual Camino

    During lockdown I have been doing some virtual challenges as I was supposed to be on the Camino Norte in May. I’ve walked Hadrians wall and Route 66 and had some purpose to my days. Yesterday a new ‘virtual’ challenge was released and to my dismay it was the Camino de Santiago. It looks great...

    Virtual Camino

    For those that can’t make the trip to Spain (at least for now), I found a little extra motivation to keep in walking shape. Apparently you can walk the Camino (virtually), taking as many days as you’d like, and I believe there are also interesting postcards along the way. I found this via...

    A different kind of virtual Camino

    A lot of people are doing different "virtual Caminos". The ones I've seen generally fall into two types: - People are walking locally each day and mapping the distance of their local walks against a Camino route - People are sharing photos and reminiscences of previous Caminos, one stage each...

    Virtual (and very detailed) plan to walk the VdlP and Sanabrés (planning while in confinement)

    This year we were going to walk from Lisbon to SdC, after a few shorter walks in France and a week volunteering at SJPdP. As a result of Covid-19, we are now confined in Melbourne, Australia, and I have been keeping the dream alive by planning 2021 and 2022 (when I am not running after a...

    A virtual o-henro on Shikoku

    For those looking for a little different virtual pilgrimage, "tobotobo aruku" has been uploading videos of the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage for the past six years. They have reached 245 videos, comprising 83 of the 88 temples, just today. Since the channel contains the videos in reverse order...

    A Virtual Camino

    In North Carolina we are ordered to stay home from work and not to be in public places unless for medicine or food. We are encouraged, however, to get outside (practicing safe physical distancing) and exercise. I have decided to make the most of this liberty and have broken the Camino Frances...

    You CAN walk a virtual Camino in Google Earth!

    First: Unfortunately, threads on this huge forum will sink down rather quickly. I will now, in these times, bump up a thread that was posted 8 years ago by another member of this forum. The reason: We will not be able to walk this year, obviously. But we CAN go virtual! For oldtimers it can be...

    Greetings Pilgrims! Because of the onslaught of the coronavirus, pilgrims from around the world are unable to complete their Caminos, momentarily. In light of the fact, Duperier's Authentic Journeys has just started a new group on Facebook, open to ALL pilgrims, to join them on a ‘Virtual...

    VIRTUAL Camino Francés

    There have been some mentions recently about virtual activities. This has inspired me to start a virtual Camino Frances with my wife and two other couples who have not done a 'real' Camino. We live in Somerset and one set of friends in Essex and the other in Cornwall. We will virtually arrive in...
