Every year, Cape Camino offers shorter Camino packages for those who only have weekends available.
We partner with organisations that suit our ethos and theme the weekend to them. We also host weekends themed to special times of year.

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 on route are optional to visit. There are many opportunities to connect with nature as a sacred space.
Please use the address provided and Google Maps to find the location.
Do your own research, on the area, the terrain, the weather, or any other information that may be of interest to you. This is not a tour, or a hike. It is a pilgrimage and our services are to assist you with your logistics.
