The Road to Santiago de Compostela: A route of transformation and sustainability.

The road to Santiago de Compostela in Spain is one of the most emblematic, enriching and meaningful routes that can be undertaken. With centuries of history, magical landscapes and a deep spiritual value, the road welcomes pilgrims from all over the world who find adventure, reflection, connection and in many cases healing. However, beyond this enriching personal experience, it is also important to highlight that there is the possibility of walking the Camino guaranteeing quality, continuity and balance. In other words, sustainability.

What are these sustainable practices?

1. Pilgrimage Form 

Pilgrimage on the road to Santiago de Compostela, either walking or cycling, are wonderful sustainable alternatives that support the care of the surrounding environment.

In our El Camino S.A.B.E. tour, we encourage this connection with nature by offering the alternative of walking to complete the route. This choice allows our pilgrims to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the landscape as they advance towards their destination.

In addition, as part of our commitment to the integral wellbeing of each pilgrim, at the end of each day’s hike, we offer a relaxing massage to release tension and recharge energy for the next day of adventure.

2.  Accommodation

Along the way, we come across a variety of eco-friendly lodging options that not only respect the environment, but also give us the opportunity to support local communities.

On our “El Camino S.A.B.E.” tour, we carefully select these lodging options where comfort is combined with a commitment to sustainability.

These hotels not only offer a comfortable and peaceful environment for our pilgrims, but they also cultivate their own organic gardens that provide the necessary ingredients to fulfill our philosophy of sustainable food during the journey.

3. Gastronomy 

Gastronomy along the Camino a Santiago becomes a wonderfully surprising, fresh and creative experience that not only gives us the opportunity to nourish the body in a conscious way, but also supports local farmers and promotes the regional economy.

In our integral wellness tour “El Camino S.A.B.E” we offer a careful selection of high quality conventional, vegetarian or “plant based” gastronomic options. We prioritize ingredients to guarantee a culinary experience that will leave a mark of the culture you are passing through. 

4. Respect for the natural environment

Keeping the route and resting places clean is a shared responsibility of all pilgrims. We pick up our own garbage and, whenever possible, also the garbage we find along the way. In addition, we respect the local flora and fauna, avoiding damaging or collecting protected species. At El Camino S.A.B.E., we actively promote these practices of respect for nature, reminding our pilgrims of the importance of preserving the natural balance of the surrounding environment.

The Camino to Santiago de Compostela is not only a physical journey, but also one of transformation and connection with nature.

Along this ancient route, each step becomes an opportunity to practice sustainability and care for the environment. At El Camino S.A.B.E., we invite you to live this unique experience, where every sustainable practice contributes not only to your personal well-being, but also to the well-being of the planet and local communities.
