We heartily welcome you to our community site celebrating the Camino! We want to create a space where you can get information about the Way, share your own Camino heart moments, help each other, be inspired and help you to take the Camino home with you. The hardest thing about walking the Camino is not the Pyrenees or the hike up to O’cebreiro: it’s still feeling the Camino Magic two weeks after getting home.
To help you do this, we’ve created beautiful posters and images. This is not to become rich and famous … well, maybe the latter :-) … as we’ll use the money to create a new spiritual, organic & vegan albergue on the Camino Francés. A place where you can recharge, meditate, do yoga and just be, for as long as you need to.
Please check out the different sections of the site, share your Camino heart memories, and let us know what you like and where we could improve our service. Welcome to the Heart of the Camino!
The amount of meat in the Spanish diet can be difficult even for non-vegetarians. Finding vegetarian food is slowly getting easier, but it still can be difficult to have a balanced protein rich vegetarian diet on the Way. So we created a map to help you navigate the Camino as healthy and climate friendly as possible. Enjoy it below.
As a result of helping many friends prepare to walk the Camino, we’ve decided to offer this service more widely. You can only get so much information out of a guidebook, and we feel that our experience, having walked the Camino Frances three times, can be personalised to help you meet your specific needs. And equally importantly, alleviate any specific concerns you may have. For less than the cost of one day’s walking, we can help with your budget, equipment, dietary requirements, ideas of where to stay, how to prevent blisters and other injuries, and take away your anxiety. Go to the Shop for more details or directly click here on the 'Helping you prepare' link.
Sooner or later you will realise that the Camino is all about heart. Your heart, the heart’s of people you meet, the heart of the Camino. There is a unique energy throughout the Way which will guide you in the right direction. We call it the 'Camino Magic'. There are special places along the Way, which we’ve highlighted to give you an unforgettable experience. Plus of course, a section on climate change, as we all need to do what we can to reduce our carbon footprint.
