Heysen Trail and The Flinders Ranges

The trip was absolutely fantastic and we wish it didn’t have to end. The walking was fabulous and the areas we visited were all so interesting and beautiful. There is nothing we would have wanted to do differently.
The guides were outstanding and helped make the trip a truly memorable one. We couldn’t have asked for any better guides!

Best of the Camino

The Camino de Santiago, or Compostela Trail, has for centuries represented an important pilgrimage route from France, across the Pyrenees and the north of Spain to the tomb of St James in Santiago de Compostela. Following the most interesting sections from Roncesvalles in Spain through famous pilgrimage cities such as Leon and Pamplona, the landscapes change daily from mountain trails to forests and open plains. With the camaraderie of a small group and local guide, the trip is fully supported throughout. At night stay in atmospheric towns in a selection of hand picked hotels where the local flavours are introduced by your hosts.

traveller reviews

The Best of The Camino guided walking tour is exactly as described, a journey encompassing many memorable moments from magnificent landscapes, an historical overview of cities such as Pamplona, Leon, Burgos and Santiago and the influence of previous societies which provides the current cultural aspect to these places. The journey itself which allowed those that weren't seasoned Trekkers to participate fully daily due to our excellent guide and his previous knowledge of the terrain and what was achievable for each group member. Also, the accommodation and meals were superb and we never wanted for anything.
