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.

Glennda Mcgregor, Bribie Island (QLD) – September 2019
Everything went smoothly. Only thing I wish was that particularly on the last 4 days of the walk we were not in accommodation way off the trail. I liked the freedom of commencing walking when I wished to, not having to wait for when it was convenient to be dropped back to the trail. That being said the accommodation was excellent.
Donna Fyfe, Parnell (New Zealand) – April 2019
Just completed the Camino de Santiago and it’s my second outing with RAW Travel. Lilia organised everything so well. Our accommodation all went without a hitch, the bag pick-up and drop off was flawless and we had the most amazing time. It was great knowing that our accommodation was sorted each night as we were doing the Camino at a busy time (started on Good Friday so the Holy Week meant it was super busy) and there were quite a few villages in the first days that were completely booked out. In fact, on the second night, there were apparently 50 people sleeping on a church floor due to lack of accommodation. Loved the hotels and there were some great hosts and meals along the way. It was also great to meet other RAW Travel pilgrims and spend time with them. Only advice I would have is book early. The Camino is getting busier every year and if you want the really good accommodation it does book out early. I can’t recommend RAW Travel highly enough. Wonderful to have knowledgeable and organised people sorting the trip for us.
Caroline Austin, Havelock North (New Zealand) – April 2019
Seamless service before and during my entire Camino experience.
Kellie-Anne Briggs, Rutherglen (VIC) – September 2018
RAW took out the logistics labour for me. As I had already decided that I would not be trying to get a bunk bed at the end of each day it was a no brainer to go ahead with RAW and have their experts source and manage my accommodation for me. My only job in the whole wide world whilst enjoying my Camino experience was to get myself out of bed, pull on my gear and get walking. All the tedious stuff was sorted by RAW. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with both RAW and on Camino Francés. Having ‘on the ground’ RAW team members in Spain was also a plus. Both Daniel and Germán were fantastic; in particular Daniel. He went above and beyond the call of duty for our little band of pilgrims. Such a delight when we got to spend some time with him, too.
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.
