What are Camino for families Holidays?
Camino for Families
The Camino de Santiago is for everyone. That’s why we have created a special Camino collection for families, to ensure you have an enjoyable and fun adventure. Our Camino for Families holidays are created from our first-hand experience of walking and cycling the Camino with kids from age 6. As the Camino experts, we know the ins and outs of the planning of an enjoyable Camino holiday with the family.
We have created 6 Camino for Families packages, designed to focus on the needs of all family members, offering pilgrims of all ages a personalised experience. We have selected 3 of our most popular destinations and carefully tailored our products with one thing in mind: the enjoyment of you and your family.

Our Packages for Families
Family Walking on the Camino Portugues Coastal
The Portuguese Coastal is becoming one of the most popular ways with its spectacular scenery. Our 6 night walking package will show you the best of western Galicia, its food and culture. The moderate difficulty makes it a perfect trip for young families.
“The walk is an incredible experience and we all were moved by it. Very safe and well-marked, so much so that we were very comfortable letting the kids go ahead of us and we would just meet up with them at the end of the day. A trip we will never forget”
