How about a Camino in Spain. There are “self-guided” tours, but having used a company for our first Camino from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela for our first camino four years ago I do not believe that is necessary, and is much more expensive than booking the same hotels yourself. There are also albergues (shared rooms) along many of the routes which can make a Camino much less expensive. There are Caminos that can take 6-8 weeks to walk and others less than a week, some are very flat and other have many ups and downs and ups. Many of the caminos include cities on the way for exploring and rest. Last year we walked the Camino de la Costa (Portugues) from AGuarda in Galicia to Santiago de Compostela (SdC),and saw not more than a handfull of pilgrims. (That could have been because we walked in Dec.) We have also walked the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo to SdC, spectacular views along the Hospitales stage especially the wild horses. Last month we walked from Irun to Vitoria-Gasteiz via the San Adrian Tunnel and along the Roman road afterwards. Buen Camino. Ultreia!
