This journey was especially designed for those who wish to experience the magic and wonder of the Way of St. James while traveling in a supportive, sober community. By nature, walking the Camino lends itself to spiritual growth and self-reflection. The aim of this trip is to amplify and integrate that experience with the aid of an expert Spanish guide, a Yoga of 12-Step Recovery trip facilitator, like-minded companions, and stays in monasteries and albergues that have hosted thousands of pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Daily there will be opportunities to practice yoga, walk a portion of the Camino, visit medieval architecture, immerse in nature, contemplate art, attend a 12-step meeting and, of course, enjoy authentic Spanish cuisine. The trip is open to anyone who would consider this journey a path to spiritual growth.
Travelers will fly in and out of Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport International Airport.

Important note about consumption of drugs and alcohol on this journey:
The main purpose for this journey is to provide a supportive travel environment for those in addiction recovery. As such, our time in Spain will be a “drug and alcohol-free” experience. This is to show respect towards our fellow travelers who are in recovery. We ask that all travelers show humility in this regard. If you still would like an alcoholic beverage here and there, we ask that you please keep it to your own room in your free time, or when you are having a meal away from the group and our scheduled itinerary. Thank you for understanding.
