We made the decision to offer retreats instead of organizing guided tours along the Camino de Santiago after much contemplation, considering feedback from numerous individuals who approached us. This decision was not taken lightly and has been in the making for over a year. Fundamentally, it aligns with our belief that the Camino de Santiago is a transformational journey. To truly meet your authentic self, you may need to momentarily lose yourself. It’s about embracing the unknown and the unexpected. When every stage of your journey is meticulously planned and structured, the opportunity for genuine self-discovery can be limited. The Camino is a well-marked path, accompanied by fellow pilgrims, and supported by welcoming locals who are accustomed to helping those who may lose their way. It’s a journey that can be undertaken independently, and we believe in empowering individuals to do just that. Our role is to provide comprehensive support, sharing our knowledge, creating journals, and conducting live Q&A sessions to assist you in your preparation. However, once you embark on the Camino, it’s your journey to define. We’re here to hold your hand in preparation, but when it comes to the actual experience, it’s about reclaiming ownership of your own Camino, embracing the freedom to choose your path, and discovering your unique transformation along the way.

Of course, just email us at hello@caminotellers.com and we’ll have you sorted!

Of course, we are offering it for a fee of €150, you’ll gain access to a wealth of resources and support, including:

1. Monthly Group Calls: Our monthly group calls starting in late December/January will cover all aspects of planning and preparation for your Camino journey in 2024.

2. Immediate Access to a Private Group: You’ll join a community of like-minded individuals who are also preparing for their Camino journeys. This camaraderie and the mutual support from us and everybody in the group will be invaluable in your pre-Camino journey.

3. Expert Guidance: We’ll provide insights, tips, and guidance to ensure you’re well-prepared for the Camino (daily in the group) and in the monthly zoom calls.

Although you won’t be attending the retreat in 2024, this pre-Camino support program is designed to ensure you have a seamless and rewarding experience when you embark on your Camino adventure.
