HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM ?
7 days walking and 8 nights accommodations.
WHAT AIRPORT DO I FLY INTO?
You fly into Santiago de Compostela which is about an hours flight from Madrid.
HOW DO I GET TO THE HOTEL PALACIO DEL CARMEN?
You will take a taxi for the approximate 15 to 20 min drive. Cost is 25 euro.
IF I COME IN A DAY EARLY WHERE DO I STAY?
We do recommend that you come in a night in advance not to miss the pickup at 2pm. Hotel Palacio del Carmen is a nice smaller hotel located close to the centre of town.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
With your confirmation we will send you a packing list. Most important are hiking shoes that you have worn and that are comfortable.
IS THERE WI FI ON THE WALK?
Yes most of the small hotels we are staying in have free WiFi.
WHAT LEVEL OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY SHOULD I PREPARE FOR?
The walk varies in terrain. There are some long uphills but also undulating sections thru meadows and field and thru quaint little villages. The walk will be more enjoyable if you are in good cardiovascular shape.
WILL I LOOSE WEIGHT?
This walk should not be for someone who is only interested in weightloss. There is a whole other purpose to gain from doing this pilgrimage. You can lose weight and inches as well but the focus should not be on those issues.
