What an amazing experience!

"What an amazing experience! The opportunity to immerse yourself in this walk, the terrain, the villages, the other pilgrims and the opportunity to have time to reflect as you walk – priceless. The overnight stays in Galician farm houses was an absolute highlight. A true way of understanding the traditions and lifestyle. I travelled solo and loved it."

it was flawless

“RAW Travel were so professional and personable on every level. Nothing was too much trouble. From arranging the flights through to the luggage transfers – it was flawless. Train trips in the middle were spot on and the accommodation standard was jaw dropping at times. A very unique journey for us and so grateful to RAW Travel for making it so easy.”

Exceeded my Expectations

"Wow! What a great experience. The Camino de Santiago exceeded my expectations. First walking holiday and just so enjoyed. Being 67yrs of age, we chose an itinerary that was perfect for us. Accommodation was so good with a few very special stays. Everything ran smoothly with luggage transported and at our accommodation on arrival. Meeting so many pilgrims along the way was very interesting and good fun at times.”

Glow of achievement

"In short – I loved everything! I loved the walking, the weather, the accommodation, the food, meeting and chatting to people from all around the world, the thinking time, the wildflowers, the challenge of facing every day (and not the stress of city life) and the sense of achievement and pride in completing over 800km.”

all we had to do was walk!

"We loved the camaraderie on the walk. We met people from 39 different countries! We enjoyed the lovely villages, stone farmhouses, cows, sheep and lambs, wild flowers, eucalyptus forests, old churches and fresh seasonal food and the accommodation you organised was wonderful. Thank you RAW Travel for organising everything for us, it took all the work out of the trip – all we had to do was walk!”

just do it!

“The scenery was wonderful, peaceful and varied every day. Nothing but praise for RAW Travel – detailed pre-trip advice, comprehensive itinerary, useful maps and guidebooks, daily transport of our luggage, and the lovely historic accommodation. Also, we were grateful to be able to call on their local representative when one of us mislaid a passport. If you are still thinking about walking the Camino – just do it!”

A real insight

“The walk itself was amazing – a real insight into not only what the original pilgrims achieved but also what life is like in Spain today, and most of the scenery just beautiful! Our accommodations were perfect. At the end of a long day walking, to have a beautiful place to stay with great food, a comfy bed, and in some cases a washing machine, was priceless!”

accommodation was excellent - the food superb

“We loved this trip. We weren’t sure that we could do it, but each day’s distance was well judged. The accommodation was excellent and the food in some of the rural hotels was superb. Daniel, the local on ground support manager, who we met at the start of the trip, was particularly helpful, and it was good to know he was available on the phone when we needed help.”

accommodation selected was just right

“I simply enjoyed the challenge of walking over 300 kilometres and completing it. I underestimated the scale of the mountains in this part of Spain, so this added to the feeling of achievement. The transfer of our luggage was seamless and the standard of accommodation selected was just right.

a fantastic Camino trip

“We had such a fantastic Camino trip. You couldn’t have found nicer places for accommodation or planned the walk days and two rest days any better.

"The trip was superbly organised from beginning to end. Fabulous accommodation and a great mix of places to stay. We particularly loved the rural casas and the home-cooked meals. Our bags were always waiting for us and every host was charming and friendly. The whole experience was just perfect. I’ll be back to travel a different section of the Camino!"
