Why is this a Walk for Good?

We commit that  75% of our net income goes towards aiding the albergues (Spanish hostels) along the Camino de Santiago.

COVID-19 has not been kind to the pilgrim hostels and the time is now to help the hostel owners make it through the winter season and the uncertainty of the year ahead.

  • With the cessation of travel due to COVID-19, these albergue hosts find themselves without income.
  • Many are unable to cover basic living expenses, like rent, electricity, and water.
  • Supporting the albergues now ensures they will be ready to receive pilgrims when the Camino re-opens

The Virtual Camino has motivated me to travel farther and with more purpose on my runs and hikes. I look forward to progressing on my journey while learning about the towns along the Camino!

Just started my virtual hike from St. Jean Pied de Port. So beautiful looking at the Pyrenees mountains. Pushed myself and stopped for the day at Roncesvalles. Amazing pictures, feels like I am there.

The virtual experience was very rich! The web-site easy to navigate and full of wonderful content. My favorite was the Camino audio stories from pilgrims who have experienced the Camino in person. They shared personal stories via audio files, and it gave me a real sense of how diverse the Camino experience is – people from across the globe!

Not only did [the Virtual Camino] provide a focus for my runs, it allowed me to feel like my solitary runs were actual helping someone else in a small way.
