Interested in local stories and other tips on the Camino? Our blog section is a wealth of information on the Camino and its traditions. We cover a lot of information to help you prepare better for your next holiday with us. From practical tips when travelling with family to myths and legends, our posts will give you a broader understanding of the traditional pilgrimage routes. Because no two family holidays are alike, we want to make sure you make the most of your walking or cycling experience with Camino Ways. Embarking on an ancient route such as the Portuguese Coastal or the Via Francigena is much more than an active holiday, so we want to share with you everything we know about it. Food, history, culture, or preparation tips, our blog section will answer all of your questions.
We understand that it can sometimes be difficult to choose between walking or cycling a trail. As both options will make your family adventure a memorable one, your own interests, as well as the age of your little ones, can help you make your decision to book the perfect holiday.
For you, we have gone through the list of what makes walking and cycling itineraries different so you can identify better the most suitable package for your family. We want to share with you the most relevant information so that you can start planning your holiday. The good news is that there is no need to be a seasoned hiker or cyclist! Our itineraries are accessible to everyone and meant to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Check our section to find out more about it and make up your mind.
Our walking packages are great for any family, whether your young ones are experienced walkers or not. Waymarked trails such as the Camino are perfect for a first walking experience with children as they are safe and easy to follow.
Our itineraries can be completed in half a day, so you can plan on leaving early and organise your afternoon at leisure. We recommend that you plan some walks with your family before your holiday to give everyone of first taste of the adventure!
Our cycling family packages offer the perfect way for your family to enjoy the outdoors in a safe environment.
Children love the sense of adventure and freedom they get when cycling in the middle of nature, which is one of the reasons why we promise they will have a fantastic time.
It’s a great idea to organise some long-distance (20km) cycling trips ahead of your holiday, so everyone gets familiar with it. Your next cycling holiday with Camino Ways with your family will be a guaranteed success!
