Self Guided Walking Tours along the camino de santiago

Camino de Santiago - Last Stamp

Walk the Camino de Santiago on your own terms

We spend the majority of the year on foot along the Camino and know it better than we know our own backyard.  Over the years we have fostered personal relationships with the shop-keepers, bus drivers, and B&B owners that support pilgrims on their journey.

Our Self Guided Tour packages are the best way that we could think to put that knowledge to use for the soon-to-be pilgrim who is unable to join a scheduled trip or that prefers to travel solo.

They offer complete flexibility with regards to your starting day, your ending day, the distance you want to travel in a day, preferred accommodation type, possible rest days, and options to skip certain sections. We pride ourselves in putting together one of a kind trips to suit your needs.

For the cycling enthusiast we also offer the option to complete your camino (all or just part) by bicycle.

 

Fixed vs Custom Itineraries

The two most popular “fixed itineraries” we offer are the “Last 100 Kilometers” and “Every Inch of the Camino Francés,” which are also the the two most popular stretches of the Camino.

We can also provide fixed itineraries for the Camino Portugués, Walk to the End of the World-Finisterre/Muxia, Camino Inglés, Camino del Norte, Camino Primitivo and the Camino Mozarabe.

If your camino calls for more detailed planning we arrange a  “custom itinerary” unique to you.

 

what we provide

After getting to know what you are looking for (see survey below) and agreeing on all of the options we put together a package detailing your itinerary.  We book and confirm all accommodations, provide luggage tags for transport, and most importantly we deliver to you a package detailing your journey.  This package includes a detailed description of every accommodation, a description of the terrain on that day of walking including highlights along the way, as well as maps which detail how to get to your destination.  If a taxi is required to get you to your preferred accommodation we arrange that as well.

At the end of it all you are free to walk without hurry or worry.  If something should go wrong along the way we also provide a contact number to reach us directly.

Again, thanks for helping to make our first Camino a  wonderful experience, we appreciate all you did and are so happy we chose to go with Andaspain. The Camino itself was a fantastic experience but Andaspain made it possible because the plans and instructions were clear, the accommodations were good, and the kit was very complete.

Eat and Sleep


All of the accommodation is carefully chosen for its proximity to the camino, for its charm and for the quality of service provided.

It is categorized into three levels:

  • 1-2 star accommodation
  • 3-4 star accommodation
  • Casa Rural or Bed & Breakfast accommodation located off the Camino (150€ supplement per person)

Breakfast is included every morning for all accommodation types.

We loved that you were able to create a camino that was specific for our needs. We really enjoyed walking a portion of the camino, and everyone at Andaspain was so accommodating. Thank you for making our journey one that we will never forget!

LUGGAGE

& TRANSPORTATION


Luggage transportation is included on every day you walk.  The service is door to door meaning that you only need to tag your bag and leave it at the reception.  We provide the tags.
If you choose to stay in casa rurals off the Camino, we would arrange taxis to transport  you to and from the accommodation.

Custom Itineraries


We can customize your own self guided itinerary as we know that one’s Camino can be very different to another’s. Please contact us for inspiration if you need help deciding the best walk for you.

Start your camino here

We have put together a short survey to help us understand what your camino needs are.

Fill it out, whack submit, and relax.  We will put together an estimate and send it your way.  If you like what you see we will begin making plans on your behalf.

Nothing you share with us will be sold or given away, and you will not be added to any list.  This form is a one time deal.

How we build your Self Guided Camino

First things first, we ask you to complete the Self Guided Tour Survey to help us get our head around what you want your camino to look like.  If you have no idea what you are after scroll to our itineraries to get an idea of what is possible.

  • Beginning and End Dates

    The Self Guided Camino de Santiago tour offers complete flexibility with regard to when you want to begin your pilgrimage and by what day you want to arrive in your destination.

  • Method and Distance

    You know your capabilities better than anyone.  How far would you like to walk or ride, on average, during the course of a day.

    Keep in mind that the final itinerary will preserve this request as closely as possible; the location of the accommodation may require that some days be longer or shorter, or for a taxi to shuttle you to and from your point of lodging.

  • Accommodation Type

    Not all beds were created equally.  Neither were all budgets.

    We offer three different levels of accommodation and allow you to mix and match to suit your needs.  Choose between 1-2 star private lodging, 3-4 star private lodging or casa rurals.  If you prefer to keep the cost down but splurge from time to time (perhaps on a rest day) we understand completely.

  • Rest Days

    If you plan to cover a large distance, or if your journey takes you through cities with a large number of sights to take in, it might be nice to take a pause.

    We will advise if your journey takes you through any of those places, and of course you can schedule your own in advance.

  • Skip a section

    It is not always possible to complete the entire 800 kilometers of the Camino Francés at one time.  Real world time and budget constraints often limit how much can be walked.

    We offer the option to skip over certain sections of the Camino and we arrange for your transportation as well.  Please keep in mind that if you would like to receive the Compostella Certificate you are obliged to walk at least the last 100 contiguous kilometers.

How we price your Self Guided Camino

Fixed Itinerary – A number of our self guided walking tours follow a fixed itinerary and therefore have a fixed price.  Scroll to the fixed itineraries to see the pricing.

Custom Itinerary – Our custom made to suit your wishes and therefor the price cannot be calculated without getting a bit more information from you. The custom itineraries below also give an estimate of what the total might look like.
