Client Comments

Loved, loved, loved this trip! Everything was perfect—the hiking, the food, the hotels, the weather, the countryside, the villages, the churches, the larger cities, our guides, and the nicest group of people you could ever meet!
— Peggy C., Moraga, CA
Wonderful accommodations and extraordinary food! I loved the variety of the hikes, the history and the culture, and the laughter and fun we shared on the trip. At the end of every day I would think, wow, this was the best day ever, yet the next day would prove to be just as wonderful, up until the very end.
— Mary Jo B., Seattle, WA
On a scale from 1-10 this was a 15!!!!!
— Sherry S., Long Beach, CA
An excellent trip: beautifully curated and expertly led.
— Kay R., Doylestown, PA
The Pilgrim's Way trip through northern Spain far exceeded our expectations in every way! It was our first time visiting the country, and we knew we would have a fantastic experience going with Wilderness Travel again. The daily choices of spectacular scenic hiking, unbelievably fabulous gourmet food and wine of the region, comfortable and charming hotels, and our delightful and outstanding leaders made it an OVER THE TOP nine days on the Camino De Santiago!
— Margaret T., Holtville, CA
Everything about this trip was thoroughly enjoyable—the itinerary, the people, the food, and the leaders. Even the weather turned out to be exceptional. This is our second trip with WT, and we hope to do more!
— Yolanda (Yoli) S., Miami Beach, FL
Wilderness has once again delivered an amazing trip for all aboard. Great leaders, great guests, and a great experience. This is a complex intinerary—different hotels every night, all the meal arrangements along the way—and yet there was not a glitch the whole trip, including perfect weather! Everything was handled perfectly.
— Dickie A., Fernandina Beach, FL
If there was a rating above excellent, I would assign it to the components of this trip: guides, food, and itinerary design. Even the "van time" was well planned (and relatively brief) so that it was a break between walks, rather than dead time. Thank you!
— Betsy S., Kennebunkport, ME
This trip was beyond wonderful. Every detail was planned perfectly, extraordinary guides, and beautiful hikes. We love Wilderness Travel—we will be planning trip number four with you, and we tell all our friends about how great your company is.
— Chris R., West Chester, PA
Excellent! This was my first experience with Wilderness Travel, and I was more than pleased.
— Ellen M., Aiken, SC
This was a trip of a lifetime! Couldn't imagine it could have turned out so well. From the Trip Leaders, my fellow travelers who started as strangers and ended up as friends, to the paths we hiked, the food we ate, the hotels we visited, the local guides we had along the way, it couldn't have been a better experience. Don't change a thing!
— Katherine B., Santa Clara, CA
Best tour I've been on, and one of the best trips of my life!
— Judy C., Albany, CA
Amazing experience! I can't imagine a better way to experience the Camino de Santiago! WT has really organized a great Camino experience for those of us without the time or endurance to tackle a 6-week strenuous walk. Our group was able to experience full walking days along the most varied and beautiful parts of the Camino, while also taking in the local art, architecture, cathedral tours, wonderful meals, and history along the way.
— Margaret V., Danville, CA
Journey of a lifetime—great guides, fascinating cultural education, and wonderful food and wine.
— Kathy I., Charlotte, NC
Our guides were amazing, always helpful, timely, respectful, and genuinely invested in our trip experience and safety. Perfect!
— Sally S., Winston-Salem, NC
Such a wonderful trip! We have recommended it to many friends already! The attention to detail, the provision of wonderful food, wines, snacks, and even happy hours at the end of most days hiking were just the best.
— Ann C., Seattle, WA
I so enjoyed this trip. Spain has romanced me. I will be coming back.
— Paige W., Tucson, AZ
Starting in the flat cropland and moving through the heather, then the rolling hills and on through the Galacian forests was to us the perfect survey of the countryside.

Hiking the Pilgrim's Way was an awesome, humbling, spiritual experience.
