What our guests say
Although the cities we visited were fantastic, to me, the most incredible moments were the ones actually walking on the Camino
I became a pilgrim for 10 days!
Walking the Camino was more powerful than I thought it would be. I will cherish my pictures, pictures from my camera and from my heart.

BEST TIME TO TRAVEL
Northern Spain is gorgeous year-round although it can get quite wet in spring and fall! But what’s a little rain?!
Any time between May and October is a good time to discover The CAMINO. However, the months of May, September, and October offer the best combination of good weather and lighter crowds at sights. September and October don’t have long days, but the forest is gorgeous!
Remember to pack a coat, mornings and evenings are chilly, no matter the month of the year.
