About Good Walking Books

GOOD WALKING BOOKS began as an idea of sharing walking journeys that we had experienced in Europe, South America and Australasia. Many people have said that they ‘would love to walk those paths, but don’t know where to begin’. So we set about to create a range of books, ebooks and educational courses to share our experiences.

Journey of the Month

Travelling the Road to Santiago de Compostela, where the remains of St James are said to be buried, is one of the oldest and most interesting journeys in Europe. The idea of pilgrimage seems to touch a chord in us. Pilgrims on the road to Compostela are as taken with the journey as with the destination. We start in the city of Pamplona and make our way through the arid province of Navarre. Along the Camino we meet a variety of fascinating pilgrims, all headed in the same direction – to Santiago! Groups form quickly and enjoy sharing the Menu del Dia as well as sometimes staying in dormitory accommodations. The weather can be variable, as in cold and lots of rain. Depends on the time of year. Spring and Autumn are the best times to be on the Camino.
