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.

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 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.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for your message. As you know, you need to have 100km walked in order to get your Compostela. Vigo is 100km from Santiago by foot so you will have no problems. Our pilgrims have been able to claim their Compostela on this route: https://caminoways.com/camino-portugues/camino-portugues-coastal-from-vigo-to-santiago

    For more information and to be extra certain for your own peace of mind, you can also reach out to the official Pilgrim’s office in Santiago, they provide the certs: http://oficinadelperegrino.com/en/pilgrimage/the-compostela/

    But you will have no problems from Vigo, just don’t forget to collect your stamps en route and especially the very first stamp!

    If you’ve any more questions or would like some help planning your trip, please don’t hesitate to contact us: https://caminoways.com/contact-us

    Buen Camino!

    If I start in Vigo, is it 100% g guaranteed if I walk to Santiago I would be able to get a Compostela. As some websites say Vigo is less than a 100km.
