Q3. Why are dinners not included in all locations?

Our standard tour provides dinner in the smaller towns and villages where they may be fewer dining options.

We do not include dinner in the larger towns and cities as there are great restaurants to explore.

Of course, you can still have dinner at your hotel, please book this when checking in.

Q4. What is the accommodation we offer, en suite?

Yes, we offer an en suite room at every accommodation we select. We only select accommodation that is of a good standard, where we know our clients will be comfortable.

Q5. What about the Wifi on the Camino?

Good WiFi on the Camino is generally easy to find.

However, for the more remote locations that you may be staying in, you may not have wifi in your room but will have access in the public areas.

We would recommend downloading all your important documents eg. Maps, etc to your phone in case you can’t access WiFi or the internet while out on the trails.

Q6. What happens if I cannot walk, can I change my itinerary?

Once you book, if you need to postpone your trip, you can only change your travel dates.

If you need to make further changes to your itinerary you will need to pay an extra cost.

Please see our terms & conditions for more information.

    We had booked reservation for the Portuguese camino in May 2020. We would like to reschedule for this upcoming September.
    Are you booking trips in anticipation on Portugal opening by then or do we have to wait until it officially opens.

    Thank you

  6. By Pauline ENSOR

    My Canadian friend and I walked part of the Camino Way before lock down. We had a great time, largely due to not worrying about luggage, accommadtion etc. However some of the places we visited we would have liked to have stayed an extra night to explore the towns. Is this possible ? We are thinking of another walk next spring.
