“We’ve just finished our third major walk, each one five weeks long, using Camino Ways. They figured out our itinerary, booked the hotels, breakfast, many dinners and luggage transport. We had a few, very minor glitches along the way that were quickly attended to by a phone call. We have stayed in some truly exceptional places we would never have found on our own and eaten some spectacular meals. Of course there were a few at the other end of the spectrum too, any trip through small countryside places with few options will limit your choices. I totally recommend this company” 5 July 2018
“As a solo female over 60 years, I debated whether to do the trip on my own or join with a group. I am very grateful that I chose to join with a group organized by Camino Ways. It was a wonderful group from different countries, with a bilingual guide who provided us with details each day. Prior to departure Camino Ways sent all the details about hotels, the walk each day including sites to be aware of and elevation for each day, and the pilgrim passport and luggage tags.” Mary, 1 July 2018
“What a beautiful route , filled with rugged Atlantic sea scapes . Very doable for novice walkers . Would highly recommend a stayiver in oia , old fishing village the most quaintest place of the whole trip!” 2 July 2018
“Beautiful scenery of Tuscany just completed the good organization of the trip. Tour guide was excellent and went above and beyond to make our trip special. This was my second trip with Camino Ways (last year to Santiago De Compostella) and I would recommend it to everybody.” 22 May 2018

    Hi Colleen, you can see many pilgrims with dogs along the routes, however not all hotels accept pets.

    What about dogs, can you bring your dog along for the walk!

    Hi Catherine

    You can have a look at average tempeartures on our Camino weather map here: https://caminoways.com/weather-on-the-camino-de-santiago. Late September would be a good time to start. Hostels should all be open. If you’d like to receive a quote from our team, let us know! Kind regards

    Hi Karl, could you give me some advice as to whether the Camino Frances is possible from Sept 23rd and what the temperatures could be and whether the hostels will be open?

    Dear Mary, thank you very much for your feedback. I will pass this information to our products team so that they can review the Camino de Madrid. It sounds like an amazing route. Kindest wishes, Lisa from CaminoWays.

    Just completed the Camino from Madrid to the Frances. This camino is not well published. It is BEAUTIFUL. I suggest revising your publications to include the Camino de Madrid.

Here is a short article we wrote last week that will help you prepare when planning to cycle the Camino and you will also find the links to the different cycling options: https://caminoways.com/prepare-cycling-camino If you would like to speak to our travel team about the cycling routes for the Camino you can contact them anytime at info@caminoways.com. I hope that this helps a little. Many thanks, Lisa
