    Default Couple Packing for the Camino de Santiago | What we take with us?

    Hello, everyone! We are a young couple who dedicates themselve to creating photo and video content, as well as our own music. Our content is related to travelling and adventures. We are passionate walkers who love hiking, trekking and camping. Our goal is to promote the healthy lifestyle, to motivate people to walk more and care for nature around.

    In this video we are willing to show you what things we are going to take with us on our Camino de Santiago del Norte. As you might know we've been already hiking for one year but this is our biggest and the most serious hike ever. And so we did our best to pack only necessary things that we really need. And before we start we wanted to point out that we are working on getting our backpacks lighter and all things lighter. But this is a long journey and for now our backpacks are not in the perfect state but we want to show it to you anyway.

    If you are interested in any particular thing that we showed you in this video leave us a comment below and we may film a separate video about it. We are interested to know what things do you take with you for any longer hikes that you do and also we'll appreciate any tips that you'll have for us to lighten our backpack.

    Watch the full video here:

    Hope you enjoyed our video! Leave us a comment if you have any further questions left or just want to share your experience. We would love to read your feedback - it is very important to us!

    Camping on the Camino....you gotta be kidding. In most of Spain it is illegal, but a few do it. But not normally Spaniards.

    Spain – No with exceptions

    Wild camping in Spain is complicated. There is a “mother law” Article 46.1 of the order for July 28th which states that:
    “Apart from tourist camp sites no more than three tents of caravans may be placed at the same location, nor should there be more then 10 campers, nor may the camp be in place for more than three days. Tents and (caravans) within 500 meters of each other are considered to be part of the same group.”
    The law also states that it is prohibited to free camp within 200 meters of the sea, within a few kilometers of military installations, within a few kilometers of a regular camp site, and in protected areas like national parks, natural parks, bird sanctuaries called ‘ZEPA’s, etc. However, there is the new law under the Spanish Constitution of 1978, which created seventeen ‘autonomous regions’ each with considerable, though varying, powers to make their own legal codes with their own territory. Under these new laws, wild camping in Spain is:

    • These areas completely prohibit wild camping: Andalucía, Aragón, Asturias, Extremadura, Galicia, Navarra, Valencia.
    • These areas have their own laws/permit requirements for wild camping: Cantabria, Murcia, La Rioja.
    • These areas fall under national rules and wild camping is permitted: Basque Country, Cataluña, Madrid, Castilla y León, Castilla la Mancha. But you still can’t camp near the beach, in national parks, protected areas, etc. Also, a lot of the land is privately owned, so you’d have a hard time finding anywhere that would even fall into the permitted wild camping areas.

    In all situations it is suggested to avoid making a fire while wild camping. The locals might turn a blind eye to wild campers in some areas, but the risk of forest fire is very real and a fire will likely attract police very quickly.
    We read that the fine for illegal camping is 30 euros per square meter of space used, per day, however, other sources state that the fine is up to 5000 euros! If you are just looking for a place to camp for free but not necessarily wild, this article has some recommendations.

    Everyone has a photographic memory. Not everyone has film.

    We know that it has very complicated rules and in every province it's different but we mostly were camping in the campgrounds with the exception of several nights so we didn't find any problem there. We cannot imagine hiking without wild camping even though it might be difficult.

    Hola

    La mayoría de las caminatas serán extremadamente fáciles en comparación con una caminata de paso (3,500 km) del sendero de los apalaches. Venga y camine por el sendero de los appalachian trail en Estados Unidos. Muchos se sienten mucho más cerca de Dios y la naturaleza después de intentar esto. Buena suerte en tu caminata planificada y te respeto por salir y hacerlo

    Gracias por tu comentario. Caminar Appalachian trail seria una experiencia genial seguro para nosotros. Esperamos que lo haremos pronto. Por ahora vamos a disfrutar las caminatas europeos
