Two Spots Left on Spring Trip for Women
It's not too late!
Walk With Us:
For a New Refuge for Pilgrims of All Faiths
Explore the Camino, Spain
April 29 - May 7, 2019
“Pilgrimage is at the very heart of our faith… The Anglican Centre in Santiago will bring people together, welcoming all for a common good. I offer my congratulations and thanks to the church for this, a global interfaith religious centre, part of the Anglican Communion in Spain.” ⎯ Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
How much walking will I be doing?
Expect to be walking, approximately 6 to 8 miles per day, with a shorter walk into Astorga on our first walking day and a shorter walk on the third day but with an uphill climb. We will also have transport on hand to intercept and pick up those who do not wish to walk the full distance.
How will our luggage be transported?
We will have a comfortable coach until we get to Santiago de Compostela. The coach will take our luggage to our accommodation each day and will be available to take guests back to the hotel from a convenient meeting point on the route should they want to stop walking earlier.
What do I need to bring with me?
We will send you a pack list when you register but the most important thing is to bring walking boots you have already broken in, thin layers and breathable clothing for walking.
What will the temperature be like?
The temperature for May is currently showing to be in the early 60 degrees Fahrenheit, but this of course may vary. We will be starting our walking early in the day when the temperature is cooler. A light Galician rain shower is never too far away so you will see a raincoat on the pack list too!
What type of accommodation will I be staying in?
Our accommodation is varied in style but mainly comfortable four star accommodation on the Camino with five star hotels for our time in Madrid.
How will we be travelling through Spain?
A comfortable, private coach will drive us to from Madrid to Santiago de Compostela, dropping us off and collecting us between the selected routes we will be walking. We will travel via train from Santiago de Compostela back to Madrid.
Who will be leading us?
Nancy Mead is a keen walker of the Camino and will be sharing her wisdom and Camino know-how as we walk each day. The Bishop will be showing us certain areas along the way with Joanna taking charge of the logistics.
