Praise for The Camino Ingles: 6 days to Santiago
El Superlativo! - "The most authoritative, short book on the Camino Ingles I've ever come across! Laid out the journey in easy-to-understand steps. Took what could be an overwhelming 140 kilometer trek and made it manageable " - Don Kidwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Dreaming of walking a Camino, but have time or physical health challenges? - "A comprehensive guide to this centuries old, lesser known route, it takes you from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela. For those people unable to garner the month often needed for the Camino Frances, or those not sure of their physical capability, the Camino Ingles is a brilliant answer." - Kate Elliott
The book that saved me - "As a novice walker this was a lifeline. I did Camino Ingles alone and having this book in my hand was like having a personal guide. At times more like a guardian angel. I cannot recommend this book highly enough - it brings the route to life and encourages you to keep on walking." - Kenny
A Gem. Different than the normal Camino Literature.- "I liked the two central themes - that we can still obtain the pilgrim experience in our busy modern lives and just because the Camino Ingles is short does mean it is easy. The book is full of practical advice and instructions with a quirky sense of humor which I found engaging, I felt as if the author was speaking directly to me."Peter Moy
Yes - You can have an adventure because you are never too old, too young, or not fit enough for this Camino!
Do you want to thru-hike the famous pilgrimage trail, the 500 mile/800 km Camino Frances in Spain, but don’t have 30+ days for that grueling trek? Or are you terrified of the fitness, research, and planning that is required?
The Camino Inglés is the answer!
The Camino Inglés is one of the Northern Caminos, a marked pilgrimage trail leading to Santiago de Compostela, the great medieval era Cathedral of St. James, the Apostle of Spain. It's a great walking adventure for anyone of moderate fitness through quiet and peaceful landscape to restore your soul. You may have heard of the Camino, called variously, St. James Way, or Jacobsweg; but there are in fact, many Caminos, and the English Way or Camino Ingles is one of the most accessible and doable of them all.
