About Us

Follow The Camino, Leading the Way since 2007

Follow the Camino was the first ever Tour Operator to operate the Camino de Santiago or Way of Saint James

Our history

In 2006 our founder Umberto di Venosa fell in love with the Camino de Santiago after his first pilgrimage over 12 years ago and was inspired to help bring this fulfilling experience to as many people as possible.  So he invented a new approach to this ancestral pilgrimage, respecting its spirit and enhancing its values, while making it more accessible, enjoyable and achievable for all. So Follow the Camino was born!

From the early start of the company to date, we have organised tours for thousands of pilgrims and holidaymakers on the Camino de Santiago, coming from all over the world, cycling, walking and even horse riding.

Each of our specific section’s is divided into 6-7 days, where you walk, cycle or horse ride a reasonable and manageable amount of kilometres each day. Then you stay each night in carefully selected and regularly assessed, authentic accommodation (family owned hotels, genuine casa rurales, great pensiones), enjoying the social and cultural scene while having the freshest local food and drinks. We are now often copied but never equaled.
