Camino de Santiago Tours

Camino de Santiago Tours

On Foot in Spain Walking Tours & Hiking Educational Adventures specializes in small group (7 to 15 people) walking holidays, Camino de Santiago pilgrimage tours and hiking vacations in northern Spain since 1999.
On the Camino de Santiago tour we bring to life the fascinating cultural heritage (art, architecture, history, folklore, flora & fauna) of the medieval Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, aka the Way of St James, from Pamplona to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
You can earn the Compostela Certificate on the Compostela tour walking the rustic trails of Galicia from Leon.
Hiking the stunning, isolated coastal and mountain trails of Galicia and walking along the Camino in Portugal (Camino Portuguese) you’ll learn about the culture and rural life first hand. Both the avant-garde and rustic Basque Country & Pyrenees walks as well as the emerald, limestone heights found while hiking the Picos de Europa will dazzle for their beauty and stimulate all of your senses. Let us share our Spain with you!

Emilio Estevez comments on Nancy's Review!

Bravo! Thank you so very much for your wonderful and thoughtful review of "The Way."
Nancy Frey with Emilio EstevezA love letter to a love letter, as it were!
As someone who is so invested, so intimately connected to The Camino, I am both pleased and quite humbled by your remarks.
Your own personal story of finding your heart-mate while on pilgrimage is yet again, another miracle of St. James!.... I truly enjoyed our meeting at the after-party and I wish you much continued success as you take pilgrims through their (literal) paces along this most extraordinary journey.
I hope to one day join you, without the cumbersome crew of 50 following along with cameras, so that I might enjoy "a true pilgrims experience" along this most magical route. A road to the center of one's own being and one's own heart. Thank you, again, for your most gracious feedback! Buen Camino y Gracias!
Emilio

Year 2006

CAMINO: ON GLORY ROADS 2006 Beyond your talent for sharing knowledge, beyond perfectly chosen accommodations and walking segments, beyond beautiful landscapes and great food, you offered something even more memorable and meaningful.

Basque Country

The Basques have often been described as a mysterious people: Where did they come from? What’s the source of their language? How did they survive as a people despite waves of invasion of Celts, Romans and Christian settlers? Arguments of geographical isolation seem to hold little water leading researchers to conclude that there must be something special about Basque character which has allowed them to endure and thrive in their enchanting corner of south-west France and mid-northern Spain where the sea meets the great Pyrenees mountain range....

Walk Your Own Camino

After 18 years of living and experiencing the Camino de Santiago a basic piece of wisdom keeps getting reaffirmed time and time again: There’s no right way to do the Camino. Each person needs to walk his or her own Camino and not let others’ opinions (whether they be ‘experts’, former pilgrims, priests, etc) of the right/correct/proper way to be a pilgrim or do the pilgrimage. Many people are convinced they they hold THE truth about the Camino and will happily impose that truth on others. Each person needs to find his or her own way and this is...
