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 sign up. No hidden costs.
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 Vía de la Plata from Sevilla to Santiago de Compostela and includes the connection to the Camino Francés in Astorga. 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 300 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 map 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 Irún 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!
This release introduces a dark mode for lights out albergue users. And it greatly cleans up the UX to make more content more visible.
There are a few new photos from a recent camino, and minor changes to prices and availability.
Thank you everyone for all of the comments you leave within the app!
Ratings and Reviews
Need much improvement
This is not even close to the Camino Frances app. Missing tons of albergues. Interactive map is very wrong and could be harmful if you try and follow it.
I was disappointed that albergues were not reviewed. I found the Wise Pilgrim for the Camino France had reviews of albergues that were extremely helpful. The other parts of the app were just fine.
