Why On Foot in Spain? A dedication to a personalized, direct experience with the owners of On Foot in Spain is one of the things that sets us apart. On Foot in Spain Walking Tours & Hiking Educational Adventures specializes in small group (7 to 15 people) walking holidays and hiking vacations in northern Spain since 1999. Nancy and Jose personally lead ALL of their walking tours to ensure a high-level of customer satisfaction! We have chosen to keep our business small in order to maintain meaningful contact with all of our walkers in honor of the slow food, slow travel mentality. We truly enjoy traveling with you and sharing our passion for northern Spain and the Camino de Santiago where we met in 1994.
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 to Santiago de Compostela.
Hiking the stunning, isolated coastal and mountain trails of Galicia: From Sea to Mountain or savor the bounty of sea, land and vineyard on our Galicia: Food & Wine Journey. 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 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 as friends and traveling companions!
Cultural anthropologist Nancy Frey (PhD, UC Berkeley) and writer, mountaineer Jose Placer (co-author Walking in Spain, Lonely Planet, 1999, 2003 & 2009 and Walking in Scotland, LP, 2001) personally lead ALL of their walking and hiking tours in Spain to guarantee high quality, excellence of service and knowledge as well as the personal, caring touch that has become our standard.
