Walk the Camino de Santiago 'Your Way' with our accompanied groups
16th May - 6th June [This group is full - a waiting list has been opened]
5th Sept - 26th September 4 places available
22-days on the three best sections of the Camino from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela
If you would love to walk the Camino but don't know where to start with all the planning, only have three weeks leave, and don't want to walk it alone or with a 'Guided Tour', join our 22-days accompanied walk on the three most scenic sections of the Camino Frances.
Experience all the tradition and spirituality of the Camino from the first day when we start our walk from the French, medieval pilgrimage town of St Jean Pied de Port (St John at the Foot of the Pass) in the Pyrenees Mountains. We will take two days to walk to the monastery complex at Roncesvalles where we'll have an opportunity to take part in a thousand year old pilgrim blessing in the Abbey of Roncesvalles. If you feel daunted by the thought of crossing the Pyrenees, you have the option of joining the group at Roncesvalles and starting your walk from there. The choice is yours.
We will walk over 375 km (233 miles) from the beech woods of the Pyrenees Mountains, through the vineyards and cereal fields of Navarre and La Rioja, staying in quaint villages and historic towns. After visiting Burgos and Léon we will hike to the highest point of the Camino in the spectacular Irago Mountains and leave a pebble at the foot of the Iron Cross – the enigmatic Cruz de Ferro.
NEW in 2015!!
"Complete your Camino" walking the sections you missed from Logrono to Astorga and Villafranca del Bierzo to Sarria.
5 September - 3 October
Our walk in Galicia will take us through eucalyptus forests, small farms with dry stone walls and dozens of charming villages and hamlets. Walking the last 100km from Sarria will qualify you for the coveted ‘Compostela’ – a certificate in Latin confirming that you have walked the Camino to Santiago de Compostela. At the end of your walk there is an option to visit to Finisterre - The End of the World - a fitting end of your wonderful Camino experience.
Our groups: Our walks are designed for small groups - a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 12 – perfect for singles and those who do not want to walk alone. This is not a big bucks, luxury group tour with air-conditioned, back-up bus, 5-star hotels and pre-paid gourmet meals. We stay in private rooms (no dormitories) in small hotels, pensions and rural houses especially chosen by amaWalkers.
We want to share our love and passion for the Camino with like-minded people.
We don't offer a 'Tour Guide' experience, but your group will be accompanied by an experienced Camino pilgrim leader whose goal is for you to have the most wonderful Camino experience possible.

Our group leaders are mentors, allowing each person to experience the best Camino possible, their way while she takes care of the practicalities like accommodation, luggage transfers and transport. You should be fit enough to walk on average 20km (12 miles) per day but whether you walk all the way every day or take transport at times, this is Your Camino and the Group Leader will support that. Although the group leader will accompany the group, we want you to have lots of personal time and space for contemplation and reflection. Walking a Camino can be a deeply spiritual experience and we like to be facilitators rather than 'tour guides'.

"With your loving guidance I have accomplished something that was only a wisp of a dream a year ago."
Thank you amaWalkers for the experience of a lifetime. We are grateful for the care and energy you've all given to us to make this a memorable experience. Joan is a beautiful human being. We couldn't have asked for better. I hope we have the opportunity to come to you again in the future for other "walks." K&J - USA Sept 2014
We wanted to walk the whole Camino but only had three weeks leave and didn't want to start somewhere in the middle. Walking with amaWalkers gave us the opportunity to start where we always wanted to (in the Pyrenees) and see most of the places we'd read and heard about. A highlight was walking in the mountains and leaving our pebbles at the iron cross. Walking the last part qualified us for the Compostela and we also enjoyed visiting Finisterre at the end of the walk. R & K
