Walk 67km of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail, Spain

Dates: 4-8 October 2023

This is your invitation to walk the final 67km of the famous Camino Frances, also known as the French Way pilgrimage route. This is a remarkable journey which shows off beautiful scenery, visits sleepy villages and includes the chance to visit their churches. Starting at Palas de Rei you will walk to the UNESCO world heritage site Santiago Old Town, which is home to the stunning Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Taking on a trek like this can be a spiritual experience for those who wish to walk in memory of someone cared for by St Wilfrid’s Hospice. For others it will be the physical challenge that calls to them. Whatever the reason you may feel drawn to this you will be fully supported for the entire journey – from sign up, through fundraising and then with the walk itself.

This special journey will take place from 4-8 October 2023, and all participants will be signing up to raise vital funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice.
