Do you want to do the Camino de Santiago on your own? Discover our independent tour “Camino corto Free”

The Camino de Santiago is one of those vital experiences that can be lived in many ways. You can do it for religious or cultural reasons, for personal growth… On foot, by bicycle, on horseback or even in a wheelchair.

There is a way of doing the Camino de Santiago that scares some pilgrims and attracts many others. We are talking about walking alone. It is experienced in a very different way; it offers us a great sense of freedom and of facing our own fears. However, we must also recognize that undertaking this adventure alone often puts us to the test. If we do not organize it well, if unforeseen events arise or if we demand too much of ourselves, we may end up losing the motivation and enthusiasm necessary to reach our goal.

Since we first walked the Camino de Santiago in 2000, our tours have always been guided. But we are aware that some pilgrims prefer to travel alone or without a guide. For them we have created the tour modality “Camino corto Free”, 112 km from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela, living the experience on our own, alone or with people we trust, but with all the comfort and security of a tailor-made tour.

Enjoy the comfort of resting in pazos, hotels or guesthouses with private bathroom and breakfast included. We will also organize the complete itinerary and take care of the luggage transfer between stages so that you only have to carry a small backpack during the walk.

Once you complete the route, you will be able to obtain La Compostela as in all our tours. The “Camino corto Free” is a different way to do the Camino de Santiago, an independent but organized tour.

Other tips if you do the Camino de Santiago on your own:

  • Security: insecurity on the Camino de Santiago is not usually a problem, since there are really very few incidents recorded each year. However, if we are going on pilgrimage alone it is better to do it in the summer months as there are more pilgrims on the Camino and fewer complications arising from weather incidents. If you hire the “Camino corto Free” modality, you will also have assistance en route in case of emergencies.
  • Take a moment to contemplate: those moments alone that we have to meditate, integrate into nature and live the inner spirituality are unique sensations that you will feel when walking the Camino de Santiago.
  • Start the walk in the morning to reach the end of the stage in the afternoon, thus avoiding having to walk at night when the signs are less visible.
  • Keep the pace: if you walk in a group it is easier to keep the pace at each stage. If you are alone or with a companion, you may get distracted and not complete the planned kilometers.
  • Activate your cell phone: not only to take pictures but also to check the route or download a useful app. If you come from abroad and do not have data when you arrive in Galicia, there are some free services such as the Tuwi wifi network to keep in touch along the Camino.

Do you dare to live the magic of the Camino? Remember that the “Camino corto Free” tour can be optionally extended to Finisterre or Muxía. You can also book additional nights in Santiago if you wish. Contact us and find out more about our independent tours.
