Summary

This sample itinerary can be customized to your specifications. Take only parts of this trip, modify, add ... whatever suits you. 

This outlines a select journey undertaken by two couples in late August/early September 2015 who wanted to hike the famous Camino de Santiago in Spain. They chose some of the best possible accommodations, including some charming country inns along the way. A specialized guide accompanied them and vehicle back-up was always ready to assist. This vehicle also transported their luggage on moving days. 

This sample trip offers history, culture, food & wine at an active level.

  • "It was a terrific trip. Enjoyed the walk and loved the quaint places we saw and experienced" CO, Aug. 2015
  • "The local guide was very familiar with the Camino. We may have to go back and do some more." KH, Aug. 2015
