Why choose the Village to Village Guide to the Camino Francés when there are already several in English?

We love certain aspects of the current array of guidebooks, but also feel that each is lacking in its own way. We have written the guidebook that we would want to use to walk the Camino Francés and Camino Finisterre, with the following strengths:

  • 2018/2017 editions are 20% lighter and 30% thinner than the previous edition.
  • Both the 800km Camino Francés and 90km Camino Finisterre are covered in one guidebook instead of two, adding value and saving weight
  • Both paperback and Kindle editions available
  • Solid, organized and up-to-date practical information (300+ albergues, many more hotels)
  • Accurate and user-friendly topographical maps to scale (36 daily stage maps and 100 city/town maps, now easier to read!)
  • GPS tracks available for free download
  • A neutral and invitational approach to spirituality that appeals to a broad audience of believers, seekers, sceptics and non-believers
  • Overviews of dozens of medieval pilgrim sites, grounded in the historical context of the Camino
  • Synchronized to website for updates and extended information
  • Intuitive, organized and visual layout (vivid photos, utilization of symbols and diagrams)
  • Compact and lightweight: detailed planning information is online, not adding extra weight in your backpack including expert advice on hiking gear, packing and daily camino life
