Active Adventure is excited to announce they’ve added a 9-day Camino de Santiago trek in Northern Spain to their offerings.
This new adventure provides another opportunity for North Americans to travel with ease to Europe and explore an ancient pilgrim route with expert local guides leading the way. Guests will trek in the footsteps of pilgrims, who, for thousands of years, made their way along the same path to the tomb of the apostle St. James.
With Active Adventures’ attention to detail and track record of strong customer service, both return and new travellers can look forward to hiking the Camino de Santiago beginning in April 2022.
“The Camino de Santiago has been on our radar for some time now, and the opportunity to add this life-changing journey to our portfolio was something we couldn’t pass up”, explained Wendy van Lieshout, Active Adventures and Austin Adventures CEO.
