Starting from the premise that “Camino de Santiago is an experience that you have to live som eday” … there are now infinite ways to do it. One of them is the Camino de Santiago in an organized group .
While it is true that some people still believe that to be a “good pilgrim” you must do the pilgrimage with a backpack on your back and staying in public hostels, the truth is that today the reality is quite different. Camino de Santiago from Saint Jean Pied with your backpack on your back and staying in public hostels, the truth is that nowadays the reality is quite different.
The Camino de Santiago in recent years has opened its doors wide to welcome everyone. It has improved its infrastructures and has extended its offer of accommodation and services so that anyone can do it, whatever their condition.
It is true that doing the Walking in a group you will not have the same experience as if you do it alone, but it does not mean that it will be worse. Quite the opposite!

How does the Camino de Santiago work in a group?
Departure to Sarria
Depending on your place of residence, you will travel, either on your own or in the buses that we have available, to the point where you will start your adventure. The small town of Sarria in Lugo.
Those of you who have booked the bus service will be met early in the morning at a central location in your city. There our guides will be waiting for you to start the trip. You are in for a long journey, so we recommend you take a small cushion to take a nap during the trip. The bus will make stops in different cities to pick up the rest of the group. Around midday we will make a stop on the road for lunch and we will arrive in Sarria around 17:00.
On your own
Those who make the trip on their own, will be free to arrive at the time they wish to Sarria. Once there, we recommend settling into your accommodation and strolling around the village, enjoying the pilgrim atmosphere of its streets.
When the whole group has arrived in Sarria, we will call you again for a welcome meeting, around 20:00. This meeting will serve as a first contact with your companions on the Camino. The guides will explain how the trip works, will answer all your questions and will hand out your credentials, luggage transport stickers, T-shirts and the pilgrim’s scallop.
El Camino de Santiago , many routes, one way, Lets make it easy.
A week full of emotions, learning and improvement awaits you. Every morning we will have a small meeting before starting the stage and we will explain its characteristics and level of difficulty. We will also tell you where the support vehicle will be located in case you are unable to continue walking, the bars and restaurants where we recommend you to stop and the places of interest you should visit.
Remember that we will walk an average of 20 kilometers a day. We always recommend that everyone follows their own pace and that you don’t worry about getting to the end of the stage as soon as possible. Enjoying every step of the way is the most important part of this trip.
For this reason, each one of you must have total freedom to do what you want at any given moment. This is not a trip where we all go together hand in hand, you can decide if you want to leave later or earlier, if you want to be with the group or enjoy your moments of solitude. The guides will always be there to help you with anything you need and to solve any problems that may arise.
End of stage
We usually arrive at the end of the stage around midday. Once in the village you can go to your accommodation, where your suitcase will be waiting for you, take a well-deserved shower and eat something in one of the restaurants we have recommended. Every afternoon our guides will suggest you some plan or activity, which you are free to join, with the intention of making a group and getting to know each other better.
Arrival in Santiago de Compostela
We anticipate that the Camino de Santiago is a very intense experience, with a great power of transformation for everyone who does it. For a week your travel companions, whom you didn’t know for a few days, will practically become your family. It is a journey of sharing, reflection and self-discovery. You will spend a lot of time with your own thoughts and discover where you are headed and where you want to go.
For this reason, the arrival in Santiago is one of the most emotional moments of the Camino de Santiago. Tears of joy for having achieved a challenge and tears of sadness at the end and having to say goodbye to your colleagues. Do you remember the camps when we were little? Something like that!
