Do I have to walk at the pace of the group?

The Camino de Santiago is neither a race nor a competition, and everyone must experience it at their own pace. If you don’t want to get injured, forget about rushing and don’t obsess about getting there first.

The Camino invites you to go slowly, to contemplate the landscape, to enjoy the company and solitude. Because no matter how slowly you walk, we assure you that you will never feel lost or helpless, you will always find people to share the road with.


In addition, the guide will be watching the group at all times, suggesting stops for those who want to wait for the others.
