We send you lots of information prior to your departure including a suggested packing list, travel advice and Frequently Asked Questions. We are on hand via email or phone to help out with any questions you have before you start your trip.
We send you a full list of hotel information at least 30 days before the start of your Camino adventure. You will pick up your detailed Andaspain Orientation Pack at your first hotel. As this is a self-guided not a guided walk, we will not be there in person to meet you.
We find you good quality but simple accommodation on the Camino itself. We know you don ́t want to walk extra kilometres to find your place to stay! We provide Andaspain maps with address, phone number, photo, Google map and if needed directions on how to get to your hotel or pension. All the accommodation we book for you will have en-suite bathroom facilities.
If you would like upgraded hotels or to stay in casas rurales slightly off the Camino just let us know!
On our self-guided trips, we include breakfast every day. You can easily pick up lunch ingredients for a picnic at a supermarket or find cheap baguettes or set 3 course lunches along the way. Similarly, with dinner you can find a reasonable 3 course “pilgrim´s set meal” for around 12€. At some hotels, we can add on set meals along the Way to make it a bit easier for you.
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 rural off the Camino, we would arrange taxis to transport you to and from the accommodation.
We prepare a very thorough and detailed package that you will collect at your first Camino hotel. Included in this package is your Camino guidebook, maps to your hotels, suggested restaurants, information on any pre-booked taxis, taxi numbers should you need and of course our emergency phone number for Andaspain should you need it.
The Camino is very well marked and follows mainly forest trails, paths between villages and some secondary roads. The distances we plan for you are the typical etapas or stages of the Camino. We can tailor-make your walk and adapt the walking stages as you wish to be longer, shorter, add rest days in particular places etc.
On your self-guided trips, you don´t have anyone with you walking or in a support vehicle. Having said that the Camino is a friendly, helpful, safe place to be! Knowing you have a place to stay at the end of your day means to can relax and take as long as you like to get there!
