ACCOMMODATION

This program provides a range of accommodation types that are available to pilgrims. Including approximately 2 nights per segment at the most historic alburgues/refugios (hostels for pilgrims) along that segment; and 4 nights in charming casa rurales (family run inns). Accommodations are arranged in advance wherever possible. Refugios and alburgues are generally communal sleeping, dormitory style. They may be unisex or gender specific, 4 to a room or 50 to a room. They are included in the program to give all participants a feel for the traditional pilgrim experience. However, for increased privacy to better facilitate group sharing at night and meditations in the morning, the majority of the accommodation at casas rurales provide each participant with their own private room at night. 

TRAVEL INFORMATION

Participants will need to make their own arrangements to arrive in Spain the day prior to their first 5 day segment. Airport transfer to and from the group is included from the nearest major airport. Flying from the US to London, Paris or Madrid and then using either Ryanair.com or Easyjet.com to fly to your destination in Spain is often the most affordable option. (A trick I learned from 5 years living in Rome!) 

Airport pickup and drop off for each segment are as follows:

FOOD & DRINK

Most nights on the trail, dinners are a social event held in the refugios or offered by the casas rurales at inexpensive pilgrim rates. Breakfast and lunch are easily accessible along on The Way at cafes. Food costs are not included in the program, estimate an average of $40 per day or less.

GEAR & LOGISTICS

Participants receive detailed handouts on how to prepare physically for the trip and what gear and supplies are needed (type and weight of backpack, clothing etc.). A BONUS Q&A workshop will be held in August that covers all logistics (weather, walking conditions, health concerns, gear and supplies).
