Travel Agents Self Guided Trekking Tours
We specialise in self-guided trekking tours that offer the freedom to experience the ancient trail at your own pace. Our tours can be tailored to suit any client with a diverse range of routes available. Packages can be altered depending on walking distances and experiences requested.
What do self-guided tours include?
We provide hotel/guest house accommodation of around 3* star standard with en suite bathrooms. Hotel upgrades are also available in bigger towns. For certain routes, including the French Way and the Portuguese Way, we have a Superior Collection available, where clients will be booked in the best hotels along the route.
Breakfasts and dinners on walking days are included as standard. We do not provide dinners on the first and last nights (ie. Sarria and Santiago) as we find clients prefer to try out the numerous meal options available in these larger towns. Breakfast-only throughout the walk is also possible but options for evening meals would be limited in smaller towns along the walk. Lunches are not included each day but there are numerous cafes where good lunches can be gotten for between €5 and €8. Dinner is included on all nights on guided tours.
Luggage transfer from hotel to hotel is included each walking day. The luggage transfer limit is one bag per person weighing no more than 20kg. Clients should leave their bag in the lobby of the hotel around 8am each morning before going for breakfast, ensuring their luggage tag (which we provide) is on the bag. The bag will then be moved to the next hotel and would usually be at the next accommodation no later than 4pm each day.
Walking Notes and Maps
As with all of our routes we provide all clients with walking notes and maps. As the section from Sarria to Santiago is very well marked, we often find clients don’t need to use these. On some of our other routes they prove more useful.
Clients are provided with a 24/7 support number (included in their holiday pack) to assist them with any issues or questions that might arise during the trip, outside office hours. Our reservations team manages these support calls and they speak fluent Spanish and other Camino languages, as well as English.
This is an optional extra for your trekking tour. Should the clients prefer public transport details are outlined in the ‘access’ tab for each of our tours.
