Victoria based RAW Travel offers the widest range of Camino de Santiago travel and tour information and we book all arrangements directly with our own dedicated 7 person Camino team. We have our own staff on the ground in Spain at either end of the Camino for local support. RAW travel has specilaized in walking and cycling tours since 2002 anmd we are are the leading company for the Camino down under, sending hundreds of Australians and New Zealanders each year on the Way of St James in Spain, Portugal and France.
SPECIALISTS IN THE CAMINO
RAW travel has specialised in walking and cycling adventures since 2002. We have firsthand knowledge of the Camino to share as our staff travel out on the various Camino routes each year. With a dedicated Camino team have who having experienced the Camino we are able to advise on what areas will suit you best and offer suggestions for how to maximise your time on the Camino.
FLEXIBLE DEPARTURES, INTERESTING & HISTORIC HOTELS
There are a number of ways to experience The Camino. The most popular way is on a Self-Guided trip where people can choose their own start dates and are then booked into the best available accommodation, luggage transfers are pre-arranged, your breakfast is ordered daily and you are given resources such as guidebook, maps and Spanish phrase book. The accommodation chosen is of a high standard with heritage and historic hotels booked where possible. In the smaller villages only carefully chosen case rurales (country houses, B&B) are chosen along the route.
RAW has a unique and important point of differences as our trips are flexible and adaptable to suit your requirements so that you can choose to add rest days wherever you prefer and change daily distances should you prefer shorter distances. With pre-booked accommodation you don’t need to rush to get to your next hotel. You can relax, enjoy every step and let the Camino experience take over.
SPEAK TO AN EXPERT IN THE SAME TIME ZONE!
Being an Australian based company your enquiries are handled in local business hours. In comparison with competitors who are based in the UK, Ireland or Spain our trips are actually cheaper. RAW’s trips are costed in Australian dollars and no hassle with international money transfers.Plus you get to support local, regional jobs here in Australia where it counts!
Raw book all the arrangements in Spain directly so there are no middlemen. Given the high standard of accommodation the trips are very good value and there is also options for those on a smaller budget. RAW offers both walking and cycling itineraries, and it’s also possible to do a combination of both. For example; walking the hill sections and cycling along the flatter plateaus of Castile on the Meseta is an alternative option that is becoming popular.
