Local Steve Crook is teaming up with his friend Elodie Joy to take a group of ten people to walk the Portuguese section of the Camino de Santiago -known as The Portuguese Way. Steve has taken three groups over the past few years to walk different parts of the Camino. Elodie recently walked the entire 800 kilometres of the Camino Frances and met Steve during that walk. 

Many people walk sections of the Camino for different reasons -religion, fitness, or to find themselves; and some to experience the great views, food and scenery.

The walk Steve and Elodie will be leading starts in Portugal and crosses into Spain to finish in Santiago De Compostela. The walk goes for ten days and averages 15 to 25 kilometres each day, with a rest day mid walk. Walkers are classed as ‘Pilgrims’ and each person receives a passport which allows them to sleep and eat at Pilgrim establishments. This makes accommodation and food very affordable.

All flights, bookings and lead up training will be organised by Steve and Elodie so walkers can enjoy the journey without the stress or worry of making bookings. A typical day of walking will be broken up so it is not difficult even on the long days and is suitable for all ages.

On a typical day walks will be broken up with breaks for breakfast, morning tea and lunch before getting to the accommodation for a meal with fellow walkers.

Steve says the walk will be very affordable, and an experience you will want to repeat.
