How To Customise Your Trip On The Camino de Santiago

No Camino trip is likely to be the same as another and that’s the beauty of it! Everyone enjoys their own unique experience of the Camino and you can too!

It is easy for us to customize your trip! We offer a range of options, such as additional nights, split walking days, airport transfers, hotel upgrades, extra activities on the Camino, etc.

We can also alter your Camino de Santiago holiday after it has been booked, however, there is a small cost associated with it. Finally, we can create a walking holiday from scratch. Talk to us about your Camino de Santiago idea and we’ll come back to you with suggestions and a quotation.

With our website, we aim to provide a totally customizable Camino trip where YOU select and choose exactly what you want in 10 Steps. 

There is also a step-by-step video tutorial at the end.

How do I customise my trip?

Step 1: Choose your Camino route.

Our most popular Camino route is the Last 100 km of the Camino Frances. Although we have many Camino routes on our website which you can research and decide on which is best to suit your needs. If you want to meet fellow pilgrims, the Camino Frances is very social. But if you want a quieter more reflective Camino, the Via de la Plata might be a better option.

Step 2: Click on “See Prices & Book” to get a quote

This button will be visible on the top and bottom of the route page.

Step 3: Select your desired Start Date

The system will automatically add an end date. For example with the Camino Frances Last 100 km, because it is a 6-night trip by default, the end date will be set at 7 days in the future. This means there are 5 walking days with a day of traveling either side.

Your start date will reflect the day you arrive at your starting point e.g. if you are doing the last 100 km on the Camino Frances, your starting date will be the day you arrive at Sarria and check into your hotel. Your walk will commence the next day.

Step 4: Select Activity
