Camino De Santiago information for New Zealand natives

This is a unique information site for New Zealanders (Kiwis) planning to travel on the Camino De Santiago or The Way of St. James also known as ‘French Way’ or ‘The Way’.

We hope you’ll find this resource useful when making your Camino plans (walking or cycling) and get a sense of what to expect from this extraordinary journey.
We aim to be different from other Camino De Santiago websites by showing many images as well as practical information such as maps, routes, stages, trails, books, accommodation, news, history and more – so you can more easily envisage what the ‘The Way’ is like and choose what you’d like to experience on this ancient road. It is not intended to be a guidebook but more a useful starting point (as Kiwi / New Zealand native) for planning your Camino.

We also welcome up to date information which can be passed onto other prospective ‘Peregrino’s’. Buen Camino!

We also feature our recommended Camino De Santiago tours (with RAW Travel) organised to depart directly from New Zealand (for example Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch).

So if you are a New Zealander and are looking for help in arranging your Camino De Santiago tour, whether self-guided or guided, we are here to provide exceptional service and information.

Both www.caminodesantiago.com.au and www.caminodesantiago.co.nz are maintained and owned by Raw Travel.
