About the chaperones

Cape Camino chaperones are an important part to the experience. They offer safety, navigation and assistance. They are not tour guides but Camino assistants and are aware of the ethos of a Camino so will leave you to your own personal pilgrimage.

Sacred spaces

Sacred spaces on route are optional to visit. There are many opportunities to connect with nature as a sacred space.

Important

This is not a tour, or a hike. It is a pilgrimage and our services are to assist you with your logistics.
