Adventures in Recovery

Are you somebody who is in recovery but looking for a way to recharge your program and your spirituality? If so, we invite you to come on the pilgrimage of a lifetime along the famed Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. Over the course of 8 days, you will have the opportunity to clear away the distractions of the world and immerse yourself in spirituality, humility and personal contemplation.

Adventures in Recovery are limited to groups of less than 10 people and all must be in recovery to participate. This will allow you to connect with other “pilgrims” in a way that is deeper and more intimate than traditional travel packages allow.

For thousands of years, people have gone on pilgrimage. To find God, to find themselves, to find a better way to live. We have combined the historical and spiritual tradition of pilgrimage with modern 12 step recovery to create a totally new experience: Recovery Trekking.

This journey starts in Sarria, Spain and concludes in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. It traverses the last 111km of the Camino Frances and concludes with you receiving the official certificate of completing the pilgrimage in Latin.

Each day includes morning meditation, the walk segment of between 4-6 hours and an evening 12-step meeting moderated by your guide.

Each “Adventure” Includes:

  • All lodging during the program*
  • Traditional Spanish breakfast daily
  • Welcome dinner in Sarria
  • Farewell dinner in Santiago de Compostela
  • Recovery guide who will walk with the group each day
  • Daily 12 Step meetings
  • Travel Insurance
  • Welcome kit with suggested item packing checklist, copy of “The Way” on DVD
  • Customized day pack and water bottle for the trek
  • Daily baggage transfer for large bag**
  • Pilgrim’s passport
  • Pilgrim’s credential upon completion

*Lodging includes 2-3 star hotels and rural guesthouses. These are shared, double rooms unless otherwise noted with your welcome packet. For those who prefer a single room, these are available for a supplement of $600 USD)

**You will only have to carry a day-pack during the day’s walk. Each person is allowed one large bag, weighing up to 44lbs. that will be transported each day to the next destination.

Couples and small group bookings are welcome.

Don’t wait, contact us today to learn more or to schedule your recovery adventure!
