Camino Trails

Walk or Cycle the Iconic Camino de Santiago Routes

The Camino de Santiago is without a doubt the most famous pilgrimage trail in Europe. In the 9th century the tomb of the apostle St James was unearthed in Compostela. The site became the focus of a pilgrim trail beginning in France and crossing through Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. 

If you’re new to the Camino community or even if you have already collected your Compostela certificate, welcome. There is a lot to understand about the Camino and here we try to explain it as best as possible so you can explore the Camino your way.

Whether you have 5 days or 50; prefer Spain, Portugal, France or Italy; are a walker or a cyclist; prefer a self guided trip or want to join a small group tour of like minded travellers - there is a Camino experience waiting for you. 

Browse through our complete list of various Camino trails or skip ahead to the route of your choice.

Camino Portuguese Tours (Portugal)

For many pilgrims, the Camino Portuguese is more spiritually connected to the Camino than any other way. The Camino is all about the apostle St James, and Portugal, it is said, is where he first preached. It is also believed that his final journey to Santiago was via Portugal when his bones were brought back from Jerusalem following his beheading. There are two key Camino routes through Portugal.



French Way of St James Tours (France)

The French Way of St James, also known as the Via Podiensis or Camino Le Puy Way, is often called the most beautiful of all the Camino pilgrimages.



Via Francigena Tours (Italy)

Ancient history and Roman ruins, romantic cities and rustic villages, world-famous cuisine, rich culture and mind-blowing natural beauty - it's easy to see how Italy has gained its reputation as one of Europe's premier holiday destinations. Now imagine doing the iconic Camino trail in Italy.




St Francis Way Tours (Italy)

The St Francis Way is an Italian Camino route inspired by the life of St Francis of Assisi and links Florence to Rome. Journey through the green heart of Italy on this spectacular pilgrimage.
