The ORIGINAL and ONLY guidebook/app for the Camino - More than just a list of beds!
Celebrating 11 years. Includes offline maps and a WhatsApp Helper for reservations.
No account necessary. No hidden costs. All updates are free.
Now in their 11th year as a mobile app, and their 13th online, the Wise Pilgrim Guides are the go-to source of up-to-date information on the Camino de Santiago.
The app is updated regularly with new content and new features and offers you the ability to leave tips for pilgrims following behind you.
This guide covers the Camino Portugués and its three most common variations; the Central Route, the Coastal Route, and the Variante Espiritual. It has been redesigned and now works almost exclusively offline (to share your comments with others will require a data connection). As more an more albergues share their WiFi this becomes less of an issue, and the guide will tell you which ones offer WiFi.
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. Over 400 in total, with special attention to those that can be booked online.
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.
Offline and online versions of a beautiful topographical may will give you a good view of the terrain ahead.
Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 400+ images and growing.
Scrollable Elevation Map:
This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, uninterrupted by page folds.
Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. No registration necessary.
¡Buen Camino and thank you for your support!
Minor changes to appearance, updated icons to match printed book.
Bug fixes here and there.
Ratings and Reviews
(RESOLVED) App won’t open on my new iPhone
Downloaded Apr 27, 2018. When I tried to open it on my iPhone X it immediately closes. I read another review saying to open it 3-4 times in a row. After that it opened and now it works.
This needs to be fixed. Also no way to contact the developer except through this review. That’s why it gets 4 stars.
Now that it is working, it has lots of good information I will be using on my Camino in May.
Amazingly Amazing! :D
Thank you for adding the Costal Way!! Your Noble efforts are well appreciated :D
Thank you, Thank you, Muito Obrigado, Muchísimas gracias, for this awesome APP and for the online MAP and for your great excellent efforts :D I can't express all the Grateful I am for using this app. God bless you and all the best luck. I bought the Guide too :D Bon Caminho! Started in Lisboa. On my way to Alvaiázere, continuing to Santiago. Went to Fatima too walking from Toma using iOS MAPS. Súper Cool! :) So Grateful!! Buen Camino hermano! Un abrazo muy grande :D
Good but Elevation maps seem incomplete
The elevation maps have no Y-axis!? The profile is given, but there’s no way to tell the change in elevation height; no measurement is given. I have the Wise Pilgrim app for Finisterre and the change in elevation IS meters shown on the maps. Without it the map is not very useful-showing only relative height, which make it impossible to tell if something is just a dip or a mountain.
I love all the details and the ease of access.
It would be great if there were a way to mark and “favorite” any sites or even Albergue! Otherwise there is no way to anticipate
And any work reading or planning ahead is lost over forgotten.
