"I booked with Camino Ways last February and had lots of questions which were answered promptly each time. I felt from the start that I had a professional support team behind me and followed all their advice given in their preparation brochures etc. The booking process was easy and each transaction went forward smoothly .I made changes to my itinerary to suit the party experience and was not disappointed. From the pick up at Santiago airport to Ferrol each stage was managed by Camino Ways , luggage transfers, hotels , food etc. All we had to do was walk and enjoy the wonderful experience of the Camino, its people , customs and fabulous scenery. It was a test of resilience at times but well worth it. We hardly saw anyone on the way , probably no more than 12 walkers over the six days of walking. The maps etc, were very useful and I bought the book by John Brierley to support our navigation along the well marked route. Only once did we stray off the path and that was because we were so captivated by a church and walked in the wrong direction, a local soon put us right , thankfully only a few hundred metres off the Camino. We had one hitch in Siguierio which was sorted out by the team very promptly. Pilgrim Passports and luggage labels were provided by the team as part of the package. I have nothing but praise for the outstanding team that makes up Camino Ways and will definitely book with them again."

"We walked the Camino Ingles through CaminoWays.com. The hotels we stayed in were the best available on the route. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Luggage transfers went without a hitch. We enjoyed all meals- breakfast and dinner- but one. Our packets gave valuable trip information and tips. The hotel information was very good. CaminoWays responded immediately to our pre-trip questions. We felt it was a good deal for the money spent. We are planning another Camino and will certainly book through Camino Ways again!"

"I would highly recommend Camino Ways to everyone. From my initial enquiry to coming home, they were really great to deal with - answering any query quickly, the same day, with confidence and competence and my whole experience was truly superb. My friend and I had a wonderful experience walking the English Way. Our hotels were all very different and the staff were ALL so helpful and friendly. We thought each accommodation had been hand picked by the Camino Ways team and we wrote to thank them immediately we got back to UK for one of our best ever treks."

“My sister and I booked with “Camino Ways” and were very glad we had taken this route. The hotels we stayed at were clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Having our luggage transferred for us made our daily walk along “The English Way” worry free. We knew our luggage, a hot shower, a good meal and a comfortable bed awaited us at the end of the day. I would recommend “Camino Ways” anytime and have already done so. Thank you to all the staff who always answered my questions promptly and did a great job organizing this hike. I would not hesitate to use this company again in the future.”

The Camino Inglés route of the Camino de Santiago or English Way was traditionally the preferred route for pilgrims coming from the British Isles and Ireland on their way to Santiago de Compostela, hence its name.

Pilgrims used to arrive by boat at the ports of Ferrol or A Coruña, and they would then continue their journey to Santiago on foot. They would follow a trail along the rugged coastline, passing historic towns such as Pontedeume and Betanzos, before continuing inland across the green countryside and woodlands of rural Galicia on their way to Santiago de Compostela and its famous cathedral.

The coastal city of Ferrol is also hosting to one of the most important Easter festivals in Galicia: Semana Santa de Ferrol (pictured). If you are travelling in Spring, make sure you catch some of the impressive processions taking place during ‘Holy Week’. This route has excellent reviews with many 5 star ratings.
