Walking is great exercise

The health benefits of walking are innumerable. Studies have shown that not only does walking aid weight-loss .It also; improves sleep, lightens mood, leads to a longer life, lowers blood pressure, strengthens the heart and slows mental decline!

It’s REALLY easy

Walking is the best way to explore and requires very little concentration, compared to cycling or driving. I for one would much rather walk 5km to get home than try to decipher a bus schedule. Get up and go, all you have to do is worry about yourself and your two legs, it’s really that simple!

Guilt-free gorging

From fantastic French cheese to gorgeous Gacamino-food-paella-recipelician sea-food and tantalising tapas, the Camino routes are abundant in unique and delicious local dishes to try and what better way to work up an appetite than a long day of walking? *Better still, you can practically gorge to your heart’s content with absolutely no guilt … at least that’s what we keep telling ourselves.

*Gorging at your hearts content should be enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet ;)

    The other great thing about a walking holiday is that you engage more deeply with the place you are travelling through and the people you meet along the way. You can literally stop and smell the roses.
