First steps to organize the Camino de Santiago

Before leaving... Which way to choose?

We have traveled all the routes of the Camino de Santiago to know exactly what are the conditions you will find . We can recommend the best way according to your conditions and requirements so that everything is perfect. You can also walk short routes to meet the minimum 100 kilometers to get the Compostela.

Remember you don't have to travel the Camino with an entire route. You can complete as many stages as you want, for instance starting from a intermediate point or walking just the final stages. Just keep in mind that you will be given the Compostela only if you have walked at least 100 km.

Choosing the right way is important to ensure you have a good experience. There are many factors that can help you decide on a route and it is important that you consider them all. Let's see some points that you should keep in mind before choosing the Way of Saint James.

The Way of Saint James is a pilgrimage, but also a touristic ad cultural route. As such, you must take into account the locations and points of interest you will visit. If you already know several points of the Bay of Biscay, you may be more interested in touring the south, for example. Take a look at the areas you will go through and the heritage of each one and consider which one attracts you the most.

Not all the ways to Santiago are the same. It is obvious that each one passes through different locations, but also their durations in days and miles are different. To give you an example, the Via de la Plata is the longest way to Santiago, with 596 miles (960 km). Before choosing a path, you must make sure that you have enough free days to dedicate yourself to the Camino. In addition to the total duration in miles or kilometers, each way has its own number of stages. To continue with the same example, although the Via de la Plata is the longest, it is also the one that consists of shorter stages. Analyze these data and think about how you prefer to travel your Jacobean route.

The starting place is an important factor when deciding which way to choose. Choosing a starting point close to where you live will save you time and money. If you live in Seville, it may be best for you to do Via de la Plata. If you live in Irún, the Camino del Norte. The same happens with the intermediate locations of each Way. Choosing a departure point with good connections will easy the planning and will make you trip more economic. Discover the locations of each route and choose the one that suits you best in this regard.

What are the differet routes in the Way of Saint James?

The Way of Saint James has always been a route that can start from different starting points, in different parts of Europe. Today, there are several different routes you can follow to get to Santiago. All of them have their own pros and cons and they are properly marked. You simply have to choose the one that suits you better, either by the points of, by the duration and difficulty of the stages or by the place from which you want to start.

Doing the Camino de Santiago in a group

Never Walk Alone

You can enjoy the Camino de Santiago alone or in company, depending on the type of experience you want to enjoy. A pilgrimage to Santiago in solitude is something more spiritual, since you will enjoy a time for yourself and for putting your thoughts in order. In addition, even if you go alone, depending on the Way you choose, you will meet more or less pilgrims at each stage, so you can enjoy some company if you wish, as long as you choose a fairly busy route such as the French Way or the Portuguese Way. Whether you want to join a group on the Camino de Santiago or do the Camino de Santiago with an already scheduled group, do not hesitate to contact us so we can help you organize it.

When doing the Camino de Santiago in a group, a series of extra cautions must be taken into account. Having, for example, a luggage transfer service can be very useful to make the experience perfect for everyone.

If you are going to do the Camino de Santiago alone or in a group, you can also be accompanied by an Official Guide of the Camino de Santiago. The guides of the way are professionals guaranteed to guide the pilgrims through the best routes, explaining the importance of each one. Thus, you will not only be able to save time by going along the best paths, but you will also learn everything there is to know about them.

When going in a group, it is also useful to hire a support car. These vehicles serve to ensure that pilgrims reach their destination even if they suffer a mishap. If a group member sprains an ankle or simply feels unwell, the support car will take them to the accommodation for that stage and the rest of the group can continue on their way.

Doing the Camino in a group is a great experience, but it requires some organization. The best thing in these cases is to have the support of an agency, which can be in charge of reserving the best dates and managing all the services that the group will need. This way you will avoid unexpected surprises, such as not having accommodation for the whole group in the same hostel or having to do separate stages.

If you want to hire a scheduled Camino de Santiago or if you want to receive a quote to do the Camino de Santiago, contact our agency specialized in the Camino. You just have to leave your data and we will call you to listen to all your needs and help you make the Camino de Santiago in a group.
