CAMINO

$1950 per person

The Camino has made the “Top 5 experiences” list by all four WorldTowning family members year after year. Avalon, Largo, Will and I hiked the entire Camino Frances in 2018. 44 days, 516 miles and loads of memories. It was magical, enlightening, a test of our endurance, an intense family bonding time, life changing and so much more. Everyone should go on a nice LONG walk, but if you can’t carve out that much time then how about a week with Will, Largo and I?

Watch our 43 Camino vlogs to learn about what you might expect from this trip.

Come with us on a magical 7 day adventure through the beautiful Galician countryside and rustic villages in northern Spain. We will hike 5 days for a total of 100km from Sarria to Santiago and receive our compostela* at the finish line. We will enjoy the Spanish gastronomy alongside amazing conversations. And on our final day we will walk into the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela or admire it from outside, depending on your wishes.

If you want to explore a unique land, make new friends, and push yourself out of your comfort zone, this is for you. If you care about connecting deeply with a new culture and its people in a way you cannot do on a traditional vacation, this is for you. If you approach the world with a glass half-full attitude, this is for you.

Does it sound dreamy? The experience is all that, and more.

Be prepared to hike an average of 6 to 10 hrs per day, approx. 16-32 km (10-20 miles) per day, with some shorter and longer days along the way.

Get greater detail about our trips and who they are ideally for here. The FAQ also answers many of the questions you may have about vaccines, accommodations, insurance, etc. Both of these pages may be helpful to you before you register for this trip.

    I just returned from the trip of a lifetime with WorldTowning Voyages (WTV). From our introduction to Morocco welcome baskets to the carefully chosen local tour guides, accommodations, and meals; they were committed to making sure we had an incredible time. WTV interspersed culture, history, and adventure into their activities. Jessica, Will, Avalon, and Largo provided a unique and immersive experience for all ages. I look forward to traveling with them again!

    WorldTowning’s preparation for the trip was right on point. We had such a great time. Enjoyed every minute with fun, lively group of people. Trying local food was wonderful, variety kept everything interesting. Loved the desert tents and camel riding. Shopping was so such an exciting adventure, I bought a large rug, colorful light, slippers, oils and more. Be sure to pack an extra bag for all the treasures you’ll want to bring back. I would absolutely recommend this trip for anyone who loves adventure.

    We have just returned from our Morocco 2022 trip, and LOVED every minute of it! We are avid watchers of the World Towning YouTube channel and the family is exactly what you see on TV. The entire family is down-to-earth, open to sharing their lives, and so much fun! From start to finish, our trip was fantastic.

    Will and Jessica guided us through the cities of Marrakech, High Atlas, Dades, Merzouga, Fez, and Chef. Our family (2 + 1 teenager) truly experienced the people, history, culture, and the beauty of each city. The guides and drivers were excellent; always on time, professional, and informative.

    Book your trip now, you will not regret it! This is a trip of a lifetime!!!

    WorldTowning Voyages are amazing! 10 out of 10 in my book! The hosts, Will and Jessica, are super friendly and from the start you feel like you are among friends. Accommodations are sourced and you will stay in the most comfortable accommodations available. Some of the overnight stays are a bit off the beaten path so though your accommodations might not be a luxurious hotel, they are the very best to be found and the activities in those areas really make the trip more worthwhile, often activities the average tourist will miss. My trip to Morocco exceeded my expectations. The food was delicious and being able to participate in cooking classes for the local cuisine was super fun and rewarding! Activities are bountiful but they are very understanding if you need to sit out and rest. Our guides went above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating to everyone in the group. The value for my money was more than I expected and knowing I could just show up and not worry about anything but whether I had enough spending money with me made for a very stress-free adventure! I felt very safe! I would not hesitate to book another adventure with WorldTowning and, in fact, plan to book a trip for 2024! HIGHLY recommend!

    Wow! What a magical adventure. Group travel is not normally thing…but this is different. There is so much thought and care put into the planning. I surely would have never managed to see, do, and learn as much on my own.

    This thoughtful/ethical and FUN travel.

    I don’t know how Jessica and Will did it, but they assembled a group of strangers that were kind and supportive of everyone! We had six wonderful teenagers on the trip and all the adults engaged with them. My two teenagers felt right at home. They were already asking about the trip to India!
    This trip was really a food tour so be prepared to eat. The cooking class was one of my favorite excursions.
    This trip is not for the resort-only traveler. This experience comes with noise, smells, dust, long days in the van, hard pillows, and lots of stairs! We also met wonderful people who opened their homes and lives to us.
    It’s an experience we’ll never forget!
