We have taken the ancient Camino pilgrimage route and given it a 21st century twist. Starting the adventure at our highest point C’ebreiro to our final destination, the famous Santiago de Compostela. The journey will take you up and down hills, through woodland and past many tiny hamlets, farmhouses and villages. You will finally reach The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in time to experience the Pilgrims Mass and the swinging of the Butafumerio.

Walking 100 miles in 5 days will take you on a personal and challenging journey through Galicia, one of the most beautiful regions of northern Spain.

The Camino is such a personal challenge & can be whatever journey you want it to be... it was so well organised & most definitely a cut above the rest!- Philippa

Let us take you on a journey...

This is a challenge like no other and whilst the group will be small, there will be times when you want to walk with people, and times when you want to walk alone, but whatever your ability it will require a commitment to training and preparation if you are truly to enjoy all that the Camino can offer.

For some, the Camino is a religious experience, for others, it can be a hike, or a cycle ride, but wherever you come from, it is always an adventure and a journey of self-discovery. Long before St James walked this way, pilgrims had travelled from far and wide across the globe along these well-trodden routes.

Buen Camino my friend… enjoy the adventure - it’s your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you! 

 

 

Is this challenge for me?

Whilst people have walked the Camino for hundreds of years, the Camino 100 presents a different type of challenge. Due to the terrain, which is quite undulating on each of the days walked, combined with the distances, and the variability of weather, it is most certainly a challenge that requires preparation and a high commitment to the training plan is essential.

This is a tough challenge but one that is a must for all intrepid Walkers... 100 miles over 5 days on a world famous, stunning route...  

Don't just take our word for it...

"My favourite moments... the first morning mists on the Camino were some of the most special moments for me, in parts walking through woods, some on the top of the mountain, it is so peaceful and all pretty atmospheric!

You will also meet some really great people along the way, everyone with a tale to tell... our Guide Alfonso was always looking out for the best coffee stops, cheese omelette sandwiches and homemade cakes at little farmhouses and cafes; as well as a very welcome chilled beer at the end of a long day's walk... just all fantastic!" - Reggie 

An amazing journey physically & emotionally, the warmth & friendship received would warm the heart of any pilgrim!- Lyn
