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 up to 5 days 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
JOIN in conversation on our new Blue Mountains Camino Community group on facebook. This is a fourm where you can post photos, share interesting Camino, walking/hiking related articles, news, ask any questions (there are no dumb questions), tell us if you walked somewhere new or interesting recently.
