In many cases the children will be minors and they want to enjoy this magnificent experience with their parents.

Values and feelings will emerge on the road with greater intensity and in a more concentrated period of time than what happens in our daily routine.

More time together in nature, away from routine and workloads will be the best reward for everyone !!
AGES TO DO THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO WITH CHILDREN?
If you have read our frequently asked questions, we always say that there is no age to do the Camino de Santiago, although really an advisable age would be 3 years, since younger children require more attention for their parents: bottles, changing diapers ... it can make the Camino even more exhausting. Although the child is already walking and at least up to 6 years of age, it would be advisable for you to be accompanied by a cart with mountain wheels for when the child is tired.
The first question that parents ask us before starting the organization of the trip to the Camino de Santiago with children, is whether their children will be able to walk the kilometers of each of the different stages. And we always answer that, contrary to what parents believe, it often happens that children walk much better and without complaining of fatigue, unlike many adults. Obviously each child is different, and they can get tired. Therefore, on your Camino de Santiago as a family, at all times from the start of your trip to the end of it, you will have our care and assistance with vehicle for emergencies or fatigue, in case you need it, so you can face your daily stages with absolute peace of mind and security.
