Overview

  • Follow in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims and over 1,000 years of history on the world’s greatest historical trail
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of walking the full 800km of the French Camino Trail
  • Pamplona – former centre of a fiercely independent kingdom and city of great history and deep-rooted traditions
  • Santiago – finish in this historic city and visit the final end point of your walk at the Cathedral
  • Self-guided trip allows you to set your own pace while we look after your accommodation and luggage transfers
  • Travel with like-minded people but still within a self-guided framework to give you great flexibility
  • Dedicated local support person in Spain for reassurance

This is a self guided walking trip that is for people who prefer company on their walk. The friendly nature of the Camino means it’s ideal for single travellers who would like the details of their trip well planned but do not want a fully guided walk.

Follow in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims and over 1,000 years of history on the world’s greatest historical trail. Following scenic country roads and forest tracks crossing old villages and cities born from the Camino trail, it is difficult to imagine a better way to enjoy Spain’s rich legacy of history, culture, food and art than to follow your own Camino. Join people from all walks and life and nationalities as they embark on this great adventure, you don’t have to be religious just a keen walker! We also offer tailor made walking trips along the the world famous Camino De Santiago walking trail or simply ‘The Way’.

RAW Travel also offer tailor-made arrangements and can adapt this itinerary to suit your needs – just ask us about this and we can advise on how to best vary the itinerary to suit your needs. Please note that tailor-made arrangements incur higher costs due to the extra work involved.

Reviews

Julie Jaques, Safety Beach, VIC – May 2017
The hotels were wonderful. An awesome journey. I loved every minute, even with my new daily blisters. Have been on such a ‘high’ since I got home.

Julie Fitzsimmons, Avoca Beach, NSW – April 2017
We absolutely loved our RAW Travel self-guided trek across Spain. The accommodation was fantastic. One of the highlights each day was to see where we would be staying. The mix of rustic country houses to renovated monasteries was great. The organisation of moving luggage worked like clockwork. I would highly recommend RAW to other travellers and look forward to my next trekking holiday with them.

Ruth Thompson, NSW – April 2017
What an amazing trip we all had with RAW Travel. Your organisation, choice of accommodation and handling of the luggage was flawless. We sang your praises throughout Spain and wish to congratulate you and your company. Thank you for our amazing adventure!

Lani Van Dalsen, Brisbane – August 2016
I think it is quite unique as a walking experience. As always it depends very much on the individual and your perspective. I would recommend this to all people who love walking and meeting people from all over the world.

Brenda, NSW – May 2016
I loved all of it! The mountains, the scenery, churches and of course the company of the other ladies. I enjoyed the challenge that presented itself everyday and the great satisfaction of walking into Santiago de Compostella knowing I had walked every kilometre.
