Far too many pilgrims make choices that result in injuries that sideline them for a few days, or even have to quit their walks early. Read our guidelines to help you decide how far you will walk on your first Camino day.
You don’t have to be Catholic or any kind of Jesus-follower to walk the Camino, and we hope no one along the way will ever condemn any person for walking for any reason. The process of unplugging from your regular schedule of life back home makes space for God to meet you on the Camino, whether that is your intention or not. Setting aside everything familiar and comfortable for a time makes space for something else.
Favorite questions from future pilgrims often focus on gear and travel plans, and that IS important to your trip. Those of us who have already walked know there is more. And it is often called the “Inner Camino."
