  • Group size 22 people
  • Instructor Local Camino Experts

Experienced local pilgrims will discuss the specific clothing and gear options best suited for those planning to walk the Camino de Santiago, the 500-mile pilgrimage route through northern Spain which was popularized in the film "The Way" (2011). Because pilgrims aim to carry as little as possible as they trek from town to town, walking any portion of the Camino can be challenging. We will demonstrate sample gear and share our best tips for packing. Come learn about what to carry on your Camino, or come prepared to share your own experience!
