About Us

Follow The Camino

Follow the Camino has been leading the way since 2007 and was the first-ever tour operator to operate the Camino de Santiago or Way of Saint James. Today we are the leading walking tour operator along the routes heading for the city of Santiago de Compostela, often copied but never matched in our expertise.

We have organised tours for thousands of pilgrims and travellers on the Camino de Santiago, coming from all over the world. They walk and cycle along at a pace that suits them after being supported through the planning process by our expert team.

Each of our unique routes has different lengths and points of interest along the way, and difficulty levels. All our routes can also be customised to your fitness levels and needs (we can alter your itinerary with an extra day of walking or rest, for example). You travel a reasonable and manageable number of kilometres each day. Each night you stay in carefully selected, authentic accommodation. Savour unique traditional food and wine. Soak up the culture and energy of the areas you visit in a truly authentic way. Experience the magnificence of the Camino for yourself.

Our History

In 2006, our founder Umberto di Venosa fell in love with the Camino de Santiago after his first pilgrimage. He had previously focused on a wider range of walking and cycling holidays across Europe through the One Foot Abroad brand – our sister company. When he realised how many people were looking for guidance and support to walk the Camino routes he decided to walk it himself.

Umberto enjoyed the Camino so much that he was inspired to help bring this fulfilling experience to as many people around the world as possible.

He invented a new approach to this ancestral pilgrimage, respecting its spirit and promoting its values while also enabling others to create an itinerary seamlessly. He wanted to make it more accessible, enjoyable and achievable for everyone.

That’s how Follow the Camino was born! We now offer a wide range of customisable trips on the Camino de Santiago’s many routes that cater to everyone.

The Follow the Camino Team

Our small, professional family of Camino enthusiasts comes from around the world and speaks a wide range of languages. The team’s diverse backgrounds bring different skills and unique ideas to the way we work. Plenty of our staff have walked the Camino de Santiago themselves, or other walking holidays. They understand walking holidays and can give you the best most up-to-date advice for your journey.

Our Camino Planners manage all your bookings from start to finish to make sure your experience is seamless. Our expert Camino Sales and Reservations Agents will help you plan your dream active holiday and support you through your whole pilgrimage, so all you need to do is tell us what you want and we can create it for you.

Our Marketing Team keeps the website and our social media profiles up to date with interesting and relevant news and information to help you choose your ideal adventure. And our Software Developers work to ensure you have the most seamless experience possible when using our Customer Area.

Our Future

We are constantly expanding and improving our product range to suit an even more diverse range of clients. Our sister company, One Foot Abroad, offers many more walking holidays along routes across the rest of Europe.

We are continually assessing the way we work to reduce our impact on the planet and be a more eco-friendly business that is supportive of local communities. We work with locally-owned accommodations and encourage our clients to eat at independent restaurants. Choosing to buy locally made products and participate in local experiences results in a positive impact on the cities and villages that we travel through. We inform our travellers about their environmental impacts and how to choose better options and keep their footprint of potential negative impact small.

We also keep track of all our emissions and offset the carbon of the hotels and bag transfer services we use. We want to keep providing the holidays you want to take, sustainably, for many years more. Our goal is to be the most eco-friendly and sustainable Camino de Santiago travel company in the world. Our B-Corp certification is a step towards that. Action to increase the sustainability of how we travel is the other part needed to realise our dream.
