Listen to a message from your guide, Nancy, about getting started on your Camino experience together . . .


 

Your Pilgrimage, Your Way

Design a Camino experience that is perfectly suited to you. Unique, personal, thoughtful.

Simplicity

Follow a guided path to preparing and planning for your Camino experience, all in one place.
Overwhelm, averted.

Peace of Mind

Rest easy, knowing you are starting your Camino adventure with someone who knows the path well.

Connection & Camaraderie

Meet and connect with other pilgrims, then take your first steps on the Camino together.

Everything you need to get started on your own unique Camino experience, all in one place.

You can do this! Let’s get started together.

The Fall 2022 “YOU on the Camino” group is designed for people who want to walk the Camino pilgrimage from Saint Jean Pied de Port, France, to Santiago de Compostela, with a little help getting started from someone who has walked the path before. I have been walking the Camino since 2005 and have led 13 small groups from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Pamplona. I would love to help you get started!

Do you know you don’t need or want a guide the entire way, but perhaps some assistance getting going and a small group to start out would really help? Then consider joining our group . . .

We are going to meet in Saint Jean Pied de Port, France, and walk together to Pamplona, Spain. Once we reach Pamplona, you are free to continue independently, with your new pilgrim friends, to Santiago de Compostela or wherever you would like to stop. If walking all the way to Santiago isn’t in the plan and you want to finish your walk in Pamplona, you are welcome to join us, too!

Here is what you get with this group:

  • The opportunity to share the first five days of your Camino journey, from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Pamplona, with a group of up to eight pilgrims, accompanied by an experienced guide
  • Weekly Zoom calls with your guide and group beginning three months before your start-walking date
  • Guidance and assistance with planning your travel to and from the trail
  • Private Facebook group for your specific Q & A
  • Tips, tricks, and tools for preparing and planning your walk, in written and audio formats, including:
    • A detailed training plan to get you ready for the physical challenges of the walk
    • A guide for managing money and important documents in Spain
    • Suggestions for selecting and using guidebooks and apps and how to use them to plan your day-to-day stages
    • Recommendations for how to pack for your unique Camino experience
    • Tips for selecting and using the right gear for you
    • Practical methods for communicating with home and within Spain and France
    • Ideas for how to record your journey
    • Trail-tested ways for staying safe and secure while traveling and walking
    • Advice on how to prevent and handle problems
    • Questions for reflection to use throughout the entire journey, from the moment you say Yes! to the return to your after-walking life
