About
Have you heard about the Camino de Santiago and even considered walking one of its itineraries (yes, there are multiple routes!)? But you do not have the possibility to take a few weeks off? Or are you doubting whether you are able to hike 20-30 km for multiple days in a row? This tour offers you the possibility to be a pilgrim for half a day by walking part (i.e. 12 kilometers) of the 'Camino Primitivo'. Along the way, I will share specific insights with you about the Asturian history, gastronomy and nature.

First steps on the trail
Sep 2021
In September 2021 I visited Asturias and joined Debora from intoAsturias on a half-day hike walking the first steps of the Camino Primitvo. Not having any experience with hiking at all, she made me feel comfortable and capable.
We started at the Cathedral in Oviedo where the rich history of the Camino is visible on every street corner, through scallops or stories, past a very nice bakery for some delicious snacks and into the mountains.
During our walk she shared the great history of Asturias with me; from culture to architecture, agriculture to cuisine, Debora is a very knowledgable guide and her stories make the hike even more enjoyable.
intoAsturias offers unique experiences with a personal touch and I am very happy I got the opportunity to book this excursion. It even inspired me to one day return and continue the Camino.

Wonderful Experience!
Dec 2019
Debora was a fantastic guide for the El Camino Santiago!! She communicated with us before hand and kept us up to date. Explaining how to get to the cathedral could improve, but so minor in the whole experience. She was very knowledgeable about the Camino and sights along the way. I am 68 and in fair shape. The hike was a challenge, but she was very considerate and encouraging. I finished and it was an amazing experience. Plus, we had a beautiful day. Debora also had s walking stick for me that was a great help!

Great Expeirnce!
Oct 2019
Debora made the Taste of the Camino Santiago our best event in Spain. She met us promptly, went over the agenda and we were on our way. She found something in common or to personally connect upon with each of our group members. This experience commences at the beautiful Cathedral and you pass the metal gold colored scallops while in the city as you progress on the Primitivo section of the trail. Once in the countryside, you pass by the traditional scallop markers and religious chapels. Debora is very enthusiastic, intuitive and paced the group according to its needs and desires. She made sure we had water and she even brought a few surprise treats. At the end of route for the day on the trail, we insisted Debora stay with us for a light refreshment. Totally worth the time to do this trip with Debora!

Such an incredible experience!
Sep 2019 • Solo
I thoroughly enjoyed my “taste” of the Camino de Santiago. Debora is a warm and friendly person, and she made it feel more like a hike with friends than meeting people for the first time. She was also very encouraging when the trail was a bit difficult for me. The experience was unique and special. If you are interested in the Camino de Santiago but only have a short time in Oviedo, this experience would be perfect for you.

Pilgrim for a day
Sep 2019
We really enjoyed our taste of the Camino de Santiago! The hike is not too challenging and Debora was a lovely and knowledgeable guide. She provided us with snacks, a pilgrims’ pass and a lot of information about the region of Asturias and the Camino. As Debora has been living in Asturias for a while, she is also able to give good recommendations about what to do and where to eat in the area. We would definitely recommend this tour, if you would like to be a pilgrim for a day and explore Asturias’ beautiful landscape!

Oviedo walking tour

It was a perfect way to experience the famous pilgrimage, but on a smaller scale. Something that may get you to take on the complete trail someday. Debora was an expert not only on historical facts, she was an expert on the local wildlife and environment. A must when in Oviedo!

Lovely Experience
As it happened, I was the only participant on the day which turned out to be a big plus. Debora is a sincere, kind and friendly person with an excellent knowledge of the Camino and the Asturian countryside. She is highly educated and the walk passed most agreeably. At all times she was mindful of how I was coping with it, but she needn’t have worried – it was the most pleasant 4-5 hours I’d spent on my brief stay in northern Spain!
