The Camino Sanabrés EBook ~ A Personal Digital Guide from the

COVID ~ 19 and the Camino

Spain is now allowing foreign tourists, including those from the USA to enter with proof of vaccination and completion of a health control form. A proof of Health QR Code can be obtained by going to Spain Travel Health website prior to your departure. 

You may wish to bookmark this Travel Safe-Spain website to check back on these requirements frequently, and see each individual regions' requirements as well. Masks are still required both indoors and outdoors (when social distancing is not possible) in Spain, so please be respective!

Don't forget to note your country's re-entry requirements! In the USA, the requirement for entry from abroad is a negative COVID-19 test, no more than three days before departure. For more details, also check with the IATA, as this is a fluid situation! 

I am digilantly updating my webpages and eBooks, trying to bring you as current information as I can. If you plan to walk during the pandemic, your expenditures will be higher that pre-pandemic, as many municipal albergues are still closed or at reduced capacity, often necessitating private accommodations. The same is true for any open, private albergues. 

It would be prudent to pre-book your accommodation as much as possible, to ensure a place, especially if you are walking the more popular routes. Also, call ahead if you are planning a more remote walk, as not all accommodations have re-opened.

Also, please note that despite the ongoing pandemic, we are constantly cruising many sources of information to keep our guides and web pages current, including Facebook pages and Camino forums with local connections and our own individual friends and sources that we are connected with in Spain and Portugal.

If you purchase an eBook, I will give you for FREE for up to one year, any updated versions that I release!

For additional current information regarding entry restrictions of any country in the world, including entry into Spain, click on this link to the IATA (International Air Transport Association). When the page opens, click on the country of your choice in the interactive map to see their requirements for entry.

Good luck and Buen Camino!!

Download the Camino Sanabrés EBook in PDF Format

Our Camino Sanabrés eBook is a fully informative guidebook in a digital only, PDF format, full of information and photos to assist you in finding your Way. 

We created our guide in two versions, the free version, on our Camino Sanabrés webpages, and this PDF version for purchase, to read more comfortably, without ads, as a digital eBook. The digital version can be used during your Camino in places where there is no Wifi. We found very little wifi available on this Camino!

With our digital Camino Sanabrés eBook, you no longer need the internet to follow our guide. We strongly suggest that while on your Camino, that you read the next day's section, so you will know what to expect and know how to prepare.

We also give historical information on the sites that are along the Camino, location of bars and restaurants, accommodations and pinch points where accommodation is difficult, and place names of every town and church you pass by, so you don't lose track of where you are. 

We have edited our web page information specifically for ease of reading in this Camino Sanabrés eBook! We all know that for a large volume of material it is easier to read in book or document format than online. Our eBook digital guides are your answer. You can read it on the airplane too!

As an added bonus, you will get to read our story and our experience, as it related to how our friend's injury changed the face of this experience. It is a story you don't want to miss!

Some Comments from our Guide Book Users:

From the Ingles/Finisterre: "I just returned last night from Spain after completing my Camino Ingles and Camino Finisterre/Muxia. I had downloaded both your eBooks in PDF and your GPS tracks to my iPhone. I wanted to drop a note and let you know that I don't think I could have done the Camino without your guidebooks and GPS tracks. At the very least they made it the experience I had hoped it would be - they helped me prepare for each day's walk ahead of time and not focus as much on the navigation during the walk, so that I could focus on the Camino itself each day. I can't imagine the amount of effort that must have gone into preparing the eBooks. And your generosity in sharing the GPS tracks. Thank you again."

From the Coastal Portuguese: "Dear Elle, I've just completed the Camino Portuguese solo from Porto using mostly Senda Litoral with the help of your wonderful guide - thank you! I've had a magical time. Having your interactive GPS was so, so useful for keeping on track, especially in the cities  and when I had to go 'off track' locating hotels etc. Your great photos and ideas for things to see near the path were lovely, e.g. the church in Vila do Conde where I just caught the end of the Mass service and the Santiaguino do Monte where I had the place to myself - very peaceful. And great advice to walk out of Porto rather than take the Metro to Matosinhos - thanks. There were many families enjoying the lovely day (Saturday) and it was a pleasure to experience. They are obviously increasing the Ecovia (boardwalk) even since you wrote this. I did take the decision not to do beach walking as you did (apart from the odd moments) because I didn't know if it would work with tides. Thank you again!"
