Welcome to useful Camino De Santiago information for New Zealand natives

Unique information for New Zealand natives (‘Kiwis’) planning a Camino De Santiago Adventure

This is a unique information site for New Zealanders (Kiwis) planning to travel on the Camino De Santiago or  The Way of St.James ( ‘French Way’ or simply ‘The Way’) as it’s also known. We hope you’ll find this a useful resource 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 (eg. 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!
