After the very successful HAEi/AEDAF Camino Walk on the legendary Camino de Santiago in northwestern Spain in May 2016 and 2017 as well as the Jakobsweg Walk in Vienna, Austria, quite a number of people have expressed an interest in repeating the experience in May 2019.

Consequently, HAEi has decided to once more team up with the Spanish HAE organization AEDAF to organize a Camino Walk to commemorate the global HAE awareness day hae day :-) in 2019.

Period 15 to 19 May 2019
  • 15 May 2019: Bus from Madrid Airport to El Ferrol (leaving Madrid around 08:30 am) – hotel in El Ferrol
  • 16 May 2019: The first stage appropriately coinciding with hae day :-) goes from El Ferrol to Puentedeume (approx. 15 km) – hotel in El Ferrol
  • 17 May 2019: The second stage will take you from Puentedeume to Betanzos (approx. 18 km) – hotel in A Coruña
  • 18 May 2019: The third and final stage goes from Sigüeiro to Santiago de Compostela (approx. 14 km) – hotel in Santiago de Compostela
  • 19 May 2019: Pilgrim’s mass at the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela – bus back to Madrid (arrival to central Madrid around 22:00 (10:00 pm))
Distances Three stages of 15 to 20 km each
Price 296 EUR per person in a shared double room // 400 EUR per person in a single room (if possible please share a double room due to the shortage of hotel rooms in Galicia) – prices include an administration fee
Included The amount mentioned includes bus from Madrid Airport to the Camino Walk // bus during the days of walking // bus from the Camino Walk back to Madrid Airport // fours days of hotel accommodation (incl. breakfast) in shared double room (unless you book a single room) // personal assistance insurance during the Camino Walk
Please note There will be no HAEi travel grants to/from Spain (as was the case with the Camino Walk in 2016).

There will not be as much leeway as in 2016 to accommodate people who cannot or do not want to do all the walking, i.e. most likely there will be no “Plan B” except for emergencies.

To secure enough hotel rooms in Galicia, we need to have the Camino group formed by early February. Therefore, this website will be active until 10 February 2019. Also, this year the number of participants will be limited to those who fit into one bus (54 people). If the limit is reached before 10 February, the site will be closed and any additional requests for registration will be managed in a waiting list.

The total amount will be paid on registration. You will be charged an amount equal to 296 / 400 EUR in your own currency (if this is not EUR).
