The Way of St. James in the Time of COVID-19

A Safe Journey to enjoy with total peace of mind

The Way of St. James has also been conditioned by the restrictions that the whole world is suffering from the year 2020, due to the pandemic by the COVID-19 virus. In this regard, pilgrims should be aware that each autonomous community in Spain establishes its own rules regarding access, capacity, public transport and group activities.

This year 2021, after a few complicated months in which the state of alarm led to close the Camino de Santiago, the Concello de Santiago and the Archbishopric consider that the necessary conditions are met to ensure the safety of pilgrims and all persons who are related to the services of the Camino.

Therefore, with the “new normality”, the Camino de Santiago has become one of the best options to enjoy a trip with tranquility, enjoying nature, gastronomy and pilgrimage.

Fortunately, if you decide to do it, you can count on the magnificent alliance between Viajes Viramundo, Bentravel and Marly Camino.

The Xunta de Galicia launches the Camino Seguro program.

An initiative that promotes a pilgrimage adapted to the current health situation through a comprehensive protocol of action in the pilgrimage routes in Galicia.

The same is adapted to the current health situation where measures are implemented to ensure a safe pilgrimage and that tourists travel to Galicia with confidence.

The Junta de Galicia, or Galitian Administration, has decided to provide a COVID INSURANCE to protect both national and international pilgrims visiting Galicia with a wide coverage against the possibility of contracting the virus.

It will cover the entire hospital stay, pharmacological and surgical care, and even the possible medical transfer from Galicia to the pilgrims’ places of origin. As well as the permanence of the quarantine of both the pilgrim and the family accompanying them with a guarantee from 500 to a maximum of 15,000 euros including international transfer.
