This is my third year following the Camino del Norte along the North Coast of Spain and I'm now 320 miles into the walk. I love long-distance walking and combining this with practising Spanish, which I've been learning for 3 years, has been a perfect combination. The coastal route is stunning but do expect a reasonable amount of road walking in addition to footpaths. The route is incredibly well waymarked and you rarely need to use the supporting guide. I've found it's best not to take the recommended short cuts. Firstly these tend to be along roads, which are painful to walk along for long distances. Secondly, when you do take the longer (non-shortcut) routes, the scenery has been great and the walking much easier on the feet. Follow the Camino has been a great company to deal with. They provide a range of planned routes and are flexible to extend and shorten dependent on how long you have available. You provide your start and end dates for the walk and then organise your itinerary based on the type of accomodation you want. You can change the details as often as you need until you commit. Do take care to check your accommodation location though each day before you walk. You may think you're walking 15 miles and then find your accommodation is 5 miles further along the route when you arrive (happened to me) or 4 miles back down the route (happened to me also). The on-call support has been there when needed and responsive and helpful. Bus and Coach travel along the route is regular and easy to book (in advance) so it's very easy to get back to your starting point. The accommodation has always been clean and several of the hotels have been excellent. Walking across Spain has been an amazing experience and I can thoroughly recommend it. 21 days done and only 14 days walking left to get to Santiago and then another 3 days to get to the coast... then I'll choose another Camino route as I've got the bug.

I will, this year be walking the Camino for the 6th time and I do it because I need to walk to maintain my health and fitness (I'm 70 y.o.) and to give myself ME time which is rather rare. It has taken as long as 40+ days and as short as 32 and it all depends on how many rest days I take and how fast/long I walk in a day. The food is amazing as I'm sure you can imagine, the beer is cold, the accommodation in hostels is cheap (approx. 10 Euros a night), a bottle of okay wine can cost as little as 1.5 Euros, a good healthy meal as little as 7 - 8 Euros. I met a lot of people and we would walk together sometimes for an hour, sometimes for a day, and once for 3 days with a young American artist who had moved to Spain and married a Spanish girl and a Danish girl who spoke very good English. If you've never been to Spain but would like to give the country a try, and have as little as 5 days free or as long as you want, then the Camino is worth checking out. It can be so alluring that I have met 'Hospitaleros' (the people who run the hostels) that have come from countries across the world who have returned to run a hostel and never went 'home'. If you ever decide to go then I'll wish you Buen Camino now. Take care. Have fun. You only live once so make it what YOU want it to be!

Overall, the experience was not too bad. The planning and communication usually are responsive and helpful. We, a family of 4 including girls of 12 and 13, enjoyed most part of the trip. The glitch happened that arrangement for two days was unbalanced. One day we had to stop after 3 hours of walking and the next day had to walk over 12 hours. Also, a prepaid dinner was not arranged. In the end, we had to pay out of our own pocket.

Hi Jin, thank you for your feedback. Due to limited availability on the section between Les Contamines and Courmayeur the walking days where not split as evenly as hoped for but this was the best of what was available at the time you booked as you wanted to not have your kids sharing with other strangers in a dorm. As explained at the time there is options to shorten the walk on the longer day by using a bus to get down to Courmayeur. Also as you where already up in the mountains you didn't need to go all the way down to Les Chapieux and back up again as there is an option, as detailed in our roadbook, to continue on the mountain route and avoiding going down into the valley. In regards to the dinner I see on our notes that you where to send us a receipt for the dinner that was not included by the accommodation. So if you have this please do sent it on to your Camino Planner. I am glad that overall you enjoyed most of the trip.

Follow the Camino did an excellent, professional job with personal touches to make me and my wife's first experience on the Camino even better than expected. The booking/pre-departure experience was easier than any other tour company we were researching from the customization of the tour we wanted to the customer friendly online payment process to the pre departure box to prep us for the trip a few weeks out, they managed it all very well. The best part of Follow the Camino was the curated selection of the accommodations along the route - each place had great hospitality, comfortable rooms w/ hot showers etc, really nice options for breakfast and dinners and provided exactly what we needed after several hours on the Camino trail. They also did a great job with bag transfers, never had to worry about it. Follow the Camino takes care of all the details so you can really spend time on the Camino itself which was just what we wanted. We liked it to much we're looking at other tours to do with them!
