Welcome to hikingthecamino.com!
We aim for this website to be a portal into all things camino, with first-rate practical resources as well as inspiration photos and reflections.
We are Camino pilgrims ourselves, having walked the Camino Francés, Camino Finisterre and Camino del Norte various times. We hope our website and guide helps others to enjoy the rich experiences of the Camino in life-changing ways, as we have.
If you enjoy this website, we think you will also enjoy our Hiking the Camino guidebook. This Camino Francés and Finisterre book is chock-full of practical resources, with excellent maps, town amenities, historical information, and prices and amenities of a wide variety of accommodations along the way. In short, this is the guidebook we wish we’d had as pilgrims!
David Landis and Anna Dintaman are an American couple who have been living and working in the Middle East and Mediterranean. They began their work with pilgrimage resources with the Jesus Trail, a 60km hiking path in the Galilee region, which David developed and cofounded. David and Anna published a guidebook to the Jesus Trail in 2010, and a second edition in 2013.
After making personal pilgrimages on the Camino de Santiago, the pair returned to map and research the route for their guidebook, Hiking the Camino Francés.
David and Anna have also worked as consultants for other hiking trail projects in the Middle East, including the Nativity Trail, the Ramallah Highlands Trail, the Masar Ibrahim in Palestine, the Jordan Trail, and the Abraham Path Initiative.
