Can I do the Camino de Santiago with small children?

Doing the Camino de Santiago with children is always a fantastic idea. This trip helps to create very special and meaningful bonds between all the members of the family.

But besides being a great experience for the whole family, it is also very enriching for the education of the little ones because of all the values it transmits. Love for nature, companionship, solidarity, empathy, physical exercise, effort, self-improvement… are some of the many things they will learn that they will be able to apply in all areas of their lives.

However, to do the Camino de Santiago with children it is advisable to plan the itinerary well and choose a simple route without much difficulty and in short stages. A good option is the French Way from Sarria or the French Way from O Cebreiro, which you can do in just over a week.
