We are here in the Blue Mountains to support all Caminos in Spain and we are excited and willing to share the wonderful spirit of the Camino that so many of us call - life changing, wonderful and amazing.
We try to emulate the Camino spirit and camaraderie through regular Camino Meetups, dinners, movie nights and self-guided training walks from a few hours to our 5-Day Camino Training Walk in our stunning Blue Mountains.
Stories and information readily shared to help those who dream of walking, Pilgrims who have walked as well as to the curious and just wanting to know more; to understand the power and the healing that can be derived from this ancient pilgrimage are welcome. Buen Camino!
COME and join us for an enjoyable day in the Blue Mountains! We host monthly Morning walks and Camino Meetups which are held on the last Saturday of the month (except December). Morning Walks set off at 9.00am usually from Blackheath unless otherwise advertised and the Camino Meetups start 2.00-4.00pm at our base, Glenella Guesthouse, 56 Govetts Leap Rd, Blackheath. It's an informative , friendly afternoon of shared Camino stories, tips and experiences and enjoy a delicous afternoon tea including Santiago tart. Meet like-minded people, make new friends. Cost is $5.00 donation. All Pilgrims and visitors are welcome! Click to find What's On
