See our Small Group programs.

ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Would like to be in contact with others on the September 99 - 22 Camino de Santiago trip

JoAnn Wootten Jul 02, 2014 at 05:47 PM

Would like to make contact with anyone signed up for the Sept. 29-Oct,13 program. contact me My husband and I will be on that trip. See Carolyn will be traveling with us.
JoAnn Wootten Jul 02, 2014 at 08:19 PM

Here is a little info about my husband and me for those who will be travelling with us. My husband is a retired (2008) Episcopal priest however we both still do supply work so not totally retired. I am a retired college administrator (in the health sciences information area). We have lived in NC, TN, AR (our last residence before we retired). Now live in the town of Wake Forest, NC near Raleigh. Have lived here since we retired in 2008. We have been training for a number of months--walking in the mountains some and doing 8 mile hikes two days in a row a couple of times. Wake Forest has a few hills but nothing like the mountains--ones we climbed had steep trails with rock "steps." Currently I am climbing stairs to condition my legs and walking 6-7 miles per day. My husband is not training quite the same but he does Yoga regularly so is in good shape. Look forward to meeting you in the airport in Madrid on Oct. 1.
Myrla Magness Jul 04, 2014 at 10:43 AM

Thanks for sharing your training information; it's a helpful guide to me. I'm preparing, also.

Carolyn Langenwalter Jul 02, 2014 at 11:36 AM

Looking for a person doing this program and also the one following in Barcelona.

Denise from Prescott, AZ
I am seriously considering this trip. I will be traveling on the Sept 30th departure. Anyone signed up for the trip going into Madrid a day early? I want to get my airfare as soon as possible. Thanks.
Myrla Magness Jul 02, 2014 at 03:01 PM

Denise, I posted a response to you yesterday and I don't see it on here. Did you receive it? Myrla

Lynne, I just returned from the May trip and had a wonderful time. There were 20 in our happy group. You are going to love it!!!! Make sure they tell you about the GHOST.

I'm not understanding this trip,maybe you could help. It appears we mostly spend time in towns, walking around the town, and riding between towns, not actually walking the Camino. Is that right?
JoAnn Wootten Jul 02, 2014 at 01:06 PM

My husband and I have already signed up for the trip. I have a map of the Camino as well as a highway map.
JoAnn Wootten Jul 02, 2014 at 01:14 PM

I went through the details for each day and I would say on Days 3-11 we walk on parts of the Camino. How much I did not try to calculate because it took a lot of time just to look on the 2 maps and find where we would be. However, you might see if you can find a map of the Camino and check it out for yourself. We do ride through towns, etc. I have been describing what we do ad dipping into and out of the Camino--not walking like pilgrims. Hope this helps. We will be on the 9/30 trip.

Lynne Stewart May 30, 2014 at 03:13 PM

My husband and I are on the June 17th trip and am wondering if there is anyone out there online who will be on the same trip? We're flying from Los Angeles to Boston to Madrid. Anyone flying out from Boston?

Sally Dougherty May 08, 2014 at 10:41 PM

I am going on the May 14th trip- " The Way"
Fran Patterson May 08, 2014 at 11:43 PM
