DURING THE WAY
How long are the stages?
It depends on each stage and our physical conditions. It is advisable to leave after breakfast, normally we will reach our goal by lunchtime.

Is there any problem if I travel alone?
No, in fact, walking the Camino alone is a very enriching experience. You will meet other pilgrims and you will never be alone along the way. In that case we recommend choosing the group travel mode.
Is the route well marked?
The route is perfectly marked with yellow arrows. You just have to follow them, they will lead you to Santiago. However, if you have any questions, just contact us and tell us where you are, we can help you at any time.
Any time is good to enjoy the experience. Obviously we must keep in mind that in winter the rains and the low temperatures can make this experience much more difficult. For this reason, most pilgrims choose dates from March to October.
What is the function of the tour guide?
It is the person who will be with us during the whole journey, from the first group meeting until our arrival in Santiago. Its function is to help us with everything we might need, to solve possible accidents and, above all, to create a good atmosphere in the group.
Do I have to follow the rhythm of the group?
Normally every person has his own walking rhythm. We advise to follow your own rhythm, the way is not a race but an experience. You will always find people to talk to and you will never feel lonely.
It is possible that the support vehicle pick me up at any point of the stage?
No, as explained in the program, we cannot access through forests and narrow paths, so you can use it only at the established points.
In what kind of accommodation will I sleep?
Whether you are staying in refuges, pensions and hostels, hotels or rural accommodation, you will always find quality accommodation. All accommodations are of the highest quality, carefully selected after years of experience and approved by our customers.
