CaminoWays launches Camino for Families! A Family trip of a lifetime.
After a challenging year, the team at Caminoways.com is now thrilled to announce the launch of Camino for Families!
The Camino de Santiago, one of the most famous walking trails in the world, is an unforgettable adventure; perfect for families looking for a special holiday together. In fact, this is why we launched Camino for Families!
This is a brand new family travel concept offering carefully tailored and personalized family holiday packages brought to you by the Camino experts!
“Every year I see more and more children walking and cycling the Camino with their parents. It is a wonderful sight to see families sharing the Camino experience. Speaking as someone who has done the Camino with my kids, it is the most enjoyable holiday experience you can have. You really get to experience a new culture in the best way possible – outdoors!” Roland Monsegu, Managing Director CaminoWays.com
Each of our family holiday packages is developed from our first-hand experience of walking and cycling the Camino with kids of all ages.
Whether taking the children on a big post-lockdown adventure or planning a once-in-a-lifetime family reunion… walking the Camino as a family is the trip of a lifetime.

2. Camino with Teenagers
Irish journalist Peter Murtagh and his daughter Natasha walked the Camino Francés together when she was 18. The ‘father and daughter’ team then co-wrote the book ‘Buen Camino!’ together, about their Camino adventure. Teenagers will be up for a Camino challenge and they’ll enjoy the social aspect of the Camino Francés.
