Pilgrim Walking Holidays
The Pilgrim Routes of Europe.

We specialise in offering pilgrimages and walking holidays that follow ancient pilgrim routes. Perhaps the most celebrated of these is the Pilgrimage Route of St. James, often referred to as the Camino, which begins in France at Le Puy en Velay and finishes in Galicia in northwest Spain, at Santiago de Compostela.

We offer this and several other walking holidays in Europe, among them the Italian section of the Via Francigena, and routes in Portugal (the Camino Portugués), Austria (St. Jacob's Way) and England (the Pilgrim Way to Canterbury). Many of these were originally feeder routes to the Camino, each with characteristics reflecting the history and landscapes of the countries in question.

To follow a pilgrim route today is not any longer necessarily a religious experience but does offer the exhilaration that comes with being part of an ancient tradition. 

Most of our walking holidays are self-guided (we provide accommodation usually on half-board to include breakfast and dinner, luggage transfers each walking day, and maps and route instructions), with the occasional guided option. The only thing we do not provide is travel to and from your holiday but please do contact us for advice about relevant airports and railway stations.

We will be adding further pilgrim walking holidays around the world and will welcome any suggestions.

Please click on the relevant country on the drop down list at the top of the page for details of each walk. To book, or to ask any questions, please get in touch with us at walking@star.co.uk or on (44) (0)1242 254353. We look forward to hearing from you.
