Spring is nearly upon us and all over the Camino trails nature is waking from its winter slumber. This time of year is perfect for hiking. It’s not too hot, and not too cold. The days are starting to get a little longer and the Camino routes are still quiet and tranquil. Spring is the perfect time to escape and reflect.
Here are some great trip ideas for a memorable Spring on the Camino:
THE CLASSIC CAMINO PORTUGUES
The Camino Portugues begins in the wonderful seaside city of Porto. Experience the cultural and culinary delights of Spain and Portugal on one trail. In just two weeks you will be immersed a wealth of history, as you follow the trail which links picturesque medieval towns.

OFF THE BEATEN TRACK ON THE VIA DE LA PLATA
The countryside has never looked prettier than on the Via de La Plata in Spring. This is one of the less travelled routes, so it remains totally unspoiled. Traverse through calm woodland, alongside gentle streams and across peaceful rolling hills. The Via de la Plata is considered one of the most beautiful ways to enter Santiago de Compostela.

ITALIAN DELIGHTS IN TUSCANY
The rolling hills of Tuscany resemble a patchwork quilt of beauty. This trail from Lucca to Sienna is extremely open and unsheltered. For this reason, it may be a little too hot to visit during the summer. Spring is the perfect time to go. Your journey begins in the majestic walled city of Lucca. Visit the breathtaking hilltop town of San Miniato. This trail has something for everyone; food, wine, culture, history and nature. A must see!
