ABOUT THE CAMINO:

The Camino de Santiago is known in English as the Way of Saint James. It is a pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle Saint James in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in north western Spain, where legend has it that the remains of Saint James are buried. For over a thousand years pilgrims have followed its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth.

For the modern day Pilgrim walking offers the chance to slow down from the hectic pace of modern life, and revert to a gentler, more reflective rhythm.

Walking often gives rise to insights, as distractions are less and you have time to explore and notice the landscapes in more detail. Walking is also an intimate activity, and conversation tends to flow easily with any walking companions.

The camaraderie amongst walkers is many peoples favourite experience of their Camino, not to mention the simplicity of the daily routines and leaving behind outside worries.

In fact, your new worries just become your potential blisters on your feet!

We hope you will be able to join us next year. We aim to have this trip finalised by the end of September and will notify women via email on this list when the booking page is ready. Thank you for your patience as we put together something exciting!
