  • Group size 24 people
  • Instructor Local Camino Experts

A panel of experienced local pilgrims provides pilgrims-to-be with more detail about the logistics of the journey. Among the topics covered are: how to select from among the multiple Camino routes, choose air travel, and use a guidebook, online source, or mobile app to plan a daily itinerary. We share what to expect from a "typical" day on the Camino, including: the experience of sleeping in an albergue; lodging options and how to choose; personal hygiene; washing clothes; carrying your backpack or having it transported; taking the train or bus; phone and wifi access; money and budgeting; and food and meals. Any and all questions are welcome!
