Walking the Camino

The Camino de Santiago - Hiking Through History

We have helped kit out hundreds of excited Camino walkers. Gathering their feedback, together with the hiking and travelling experience of our staff, we have become something of a specialist in this particular trek.

Most walkers aim to carry up to 7kg on their backs, and we have plenty of tips and advice to help you do the same. Whether you plan to walk it or bike it, enjoy the luxuries or aim for the modest experience of its traditional pilgrims, we can help you prepare for the Camino adventure!

Walkers on the Camino trek

Check out Backpacking Light’s Camino Gear List, for ideas with links to each product, or jump directly to our No. 1 Camino pack, our No. 1 Camino insulation, and our No. 1 Camino shoes. And another item that is frequently overlooked: we can’t recommend highly enough the Smartwool merino wool socks, to keep your feet comfortable throughout the journey.

We also stock a range of Camino books and maps!

Drop in to our store in Melbourne, or give us a call to discuss your particular needs.
