As part of CCA’s El Camino Trek, you will join a group of inspiring individuals dedicated to supporting all Australians affected by Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
On arrival in Madrid, Spain’s bustling capital city, you will set off on a guided tour, exploring the city’s highlights from past to present.
You will then travel beyond city limits to embark on the Camino de
Santiago. The Camino follows an ancient pilgrimage route across
northern Spain to the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela.
From Sarria to Santiago, you will trek under the shade of old oak trees into peaceful hamlets set against the rolling green backdrop of Galicia. At night, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine. With a focus on finding inner strength, we will be walking in the footsteps of the Romans, pilgrims and modern day adventurers—breathing in the fresh air, taking in the views and reflecting on our personal journey.
Best of all, with every step you take, with every kilometre you cover, you will
raise vital funds to help CCA make life more liveable for people with IBD.
