EduCamino 2024 Tours From €390

Whether you teach history, languages, geography, or simply want to boost your students’ sense of self-esteem and teamwork skills – walking the Camino de Santiago is perfect for your student group.

Our Camino adventure sees student groups walk the historic last 100km of the Camino Frances, reaching the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and the tomb of the Apostle St James.

Thinking about going on an extraordinary school trip this year? Here’s why you should consider the Camino de Santiago.

The Camino Provides

What better way to grow than by going out of your comfort zone? Introduce your students to the world beyond the classroom and boost their curiosity to learn more about Spanish culture and traditions. While walking the Camino, your students will also have chances to meet new friends, and exchange culture with local people and explore their fascinating ways of life. If this is some of your students’ first trip without their parents, this will make for an unforgettable experience!

The last 100km of the Camino de Santiago sees pilgrims walk through idyllic Spanish farmland, sample authentic Spanish food and, of course, chit-chat with the locals.

Students who are learning the Spanish language have a unique opportunity to use what they’ve learned to interact in the real world. You won’t get that in any school book!

The history in the Galician region is perhaps the most interesting in all of Spain. Known as the seventh Celtic nation, it is home to ancient relics, pagan folklore, and a colourful living history unlike anywhere else.

Galicians are proud of their Celtic routes, and along the trail, you may be surprised to see Celtic symbols or hear the sound of traditional Galician gaita (bagpipes).

Testimonials

“St Gerard’s TY students have travelled on the Camino with Umberto and his team over a number of years now. We travel with approximately 30 boys and girls each year. The hostel accommodation and the organisation of the trip, in general, has been excellent. Having a bilingual tour guide accompany the group is a great reassurance to the group leader.

Well done to the team at Follow the Camino.”

St Gerard’s School 

“Just returned from an amazing 5 days on the Camino! It was a complete unknown of a trip for our school, and even more risky taking 15 students with me, but Follow the Camino did a fantastic job!!! Thank you so much everyone who helped to make our trip so special. Everything went like clockwork. Connections were there on time, and smiling faces and helpfulness were always evident. Thank you all from all of us!!”
