Join us on an extraordinary walking tour of the Camino de Santiago and enjoy the best of the food, wine, accommodations and culture of Spain on this magical path.
Over the centuries, people have walked by the millions from all over Europe to make their way to Santiago de Compostela, where it is believed that St. James is buried. Then, as now, they followed the well-trod path through some of Spain’s most beautiful terrain.
The Camino has something for everyone. It may bring you laughter. It may bring you strength. It may bring you new friendships. It may bring you a newfound appreciation for the beauty of nature. And almost always, it brings you what you need, even if you don’t know that you need it.
Juan Carlos is funny, knowledgeable and a fantastic guide.Alexandra Genova

Like many, I was first introduced to the Camino de Santiago by watching the movie, The Way. It was October 2011 the closing film of the Scottsdale film festival. During the movie, I found myself being both overwhelmed and mesmerized by the journey. Prior to this moment, I knew nothing about the Camino. My husband Jeff and I were both instantly inspired to take this journey for ourselves in the coming years. It forever shifted our perspective.
We want to help you give the Camino lovers in your life meaningful and affordable gifts this season, so we put together this list of some of our favorite Camino related items for the once and future pilgrim.
To embark on a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago has been a dream of mine for the last few years and now that I have returned, I can honestly say it ranks as the most incredible experience I have ever undertaken, anywhere!More on our blog
