The Camino de Santiago Pilgrim Walk 
The Region & Its Treasures

"An active holiday escape for those wanting to experience a deeply personal and transformative journey, whilst immersing themselves in the local culture and enjoying a touch of luxury "

Are you ready for a once-in-a-lifetime journey that will not only transform your soul but also immerse you in the heart and soul of Spain?

Welcome to the Camino de Santiago Pilgrim Walk (Portuguese Way) – an active holiday escape like no other.

 

Experience the Magic of the Camino

For centuries, pilgrims have embarked on this epic adventure, traversing Northern Spain to honor St. James in Santiago de Compostela. Today, the Camino de Santiago has evolved into Europe's ultimate pilgrimage route, and we've curated an extraordinary retreat experience that blends tradition with luxury.

Explore Spain's Hidden Treasures

Picture yourself walking through picturesque villages, across endless green meadows, and over rolling hillsides. Not to mention the vineyards! The Camino trail is marked by the iconic scallop shell and yellow arrows, guiding you every step of the way.

But our pilgrimage offers so much more than a scenic journey.

A Journey of the Heart and Soul

The Camino is not just a physical trek; it's a spiritual odyssey. Over ten profound days, you'll immerse yourself in mindfulness and wellness-inspired retreat activities. Alongside fellow pilgrims from all walks of life, you'll share stories, forge connections, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Tailored for Every Adventurer

No matter your fitness level, our retreat caters to all. We've carefully chosen a coastal route, the Camino Portuguese Coastal Way, for a manageable 122+km experience. But this is no ordinary walk – it's a fusion of luxury accommodations, three delectable daily meals featuring the finest local artisan foods, and of course, .... an evening vino with dinner.

Your Only Task: Take One Step at a Time 

Let us handle the details; your focus should be on the incredible journey ahead. So, what are you waiting for?

Embrace the Camino de Santiago Pilgrim Walk, and let the transformation begin.

 

Bien Camino!

AN ADVENTURE LIKE NO OTHER

"Lisa prepared a fun and engaging experience for our group. The schedule was well planned, allowing for flexibility and personal preferences. Hotels were selected with careful consideration and little surprises were embedded throughout the week. Dani, our interpreter, used her linguistic skills to ensure that all of our needs were met and her humor to entertain us. Guided meditation opportunities enhanced relaxation and spiritual growth. Most importantly, our group created friendships and experiences that I will cherish forever."

- Carolyn, USA

Your Accommodation

We'll be staying in a mix of Luxury Paradors, selected apartments and boutique accommodation throughout our journey.

No nasty dormitory bed bugs for us. 

Due to the boutique size of some of the places we'll be staying in, there will be a mix of mostly single accommodation except twin-share in just 2 of our nights on the road, ensuring that everyone has some private time on the journey to unwind and process the day in your own space. 

Note: If you're coming with your partner and want a double room - just let me know and we can facilitate that too.

Travel with Lisa is a great adventure - I would jump in on any trip she was facilitating. Terrific experience. x

Mandy, Executive, AU

"The retreat was the catalyst for a huge shift in consciousness which has radically transformed me. I have since found that my health, relationships, inner peace & overall confidence has shifted to a different level. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience to anyone on a personal journey to find their inner self."

Donna, Retired

USA

Lisa provided an excellent trip that was extremely well organized. The communication was excellent. It would have been a perfect trip if she could control the weather :-)
  • Can you accommodate Dietary Restrictions?
    Give us a call or send us an email... we'll do our best to accommodate your needs. This can be a tricky one in Spain when we have limited options some days. Happy to discuss and I'll let you know if I think it's possible. Easy ones would be red meat, no seafood etc, but others may be a tad trickier.
  • Why is the price in Euro?
    As I'll be paying for all the expenses on our travels in Euro it simply protects against any fluctuations in the currency as I hold it in that currency.
  • What's the weather like?
    It's spring and we can expect temperatures in the mid to high teens, sometimes low 20's - perfect for walking. Rain is always a possibility in Galicia so you need to be prepared for that. It may or it may not - no guarantees on that one!
  • How do I book in?
    As this is a different and challenging style of retreat, I want to make sure (as much as possible) that we're all a good fit, so the process is by application and interview only. Just hit the big pink button on the page to email me and we can set up a time to chat.
  • Is it just for women?
    Nope, although it does often end up that way!
  • What city should I fly into?
    Porto, Portugal
  • I have so many questions... how can I get them all answered?
    Feel free to email me at anytime lisamariestaab@gmail.com. As it's an interview process, we'll have the opportunity to have a chat and you can fire away on all the questions you may have.
  • Do I have to participate in everything?
    Of course not! You are always in control of your own choices and master of your own journey. Yes, we're in a group however it's a very personal journey and you're in control of you. If you decide you need to take a cab one day - that's your choice.
  • What do I need to pack?
    We'll cover this on our Zoom meeting but you'll also be sent a welcome letter with more info closer to the time.
