Walking or cycling the Camino is a wonderful experience and personal challenge.
The standard routes and plans require a reasonable level of fitness and stamina. This itinerary is designed to make the Camino more accessible.
At Follow the Camino, we want everybody to be able to achieve their Camino and experience the unique satisfaction of having accomplished something extraordinary and meaningful.
This is why we have a full range of manageable walking and cycling itineraries.
We call them our Camino Short Days.
We offer walking itineraries of less than 15KM per day and cycling itineraries of less than 20KM per day. You can enjoy the best of what the Camino has to offer at a pace that suits you.
Camino Short Days also allow you to start your days walk at a time that suits you. There will be no need to get up at the crack of dawn to start walking. You will be walking roughly for half of each day. This means the other half is free to explore the towns along the way.
Our most popular Camino Short Days route is from Palas de Rei to Santiago de Compostela. The route is a total of 65km over 7 days.
Along the way, you will stay in carefully chosen authentic accommodation. This can include pretty pensiones, genuine casa rurales, and family-owned hotels. You will be well-rested and ready to enjoy the social and cultural scene at each place you stop. Enjoy the freshest local food and drinks along the way too, with plenty of time to rest and enjoy your meals.
Remember that we can create customised itineraries for you, so if there is something specific you are looking for. Contact us and we will tailor-make a trip for your needs!
