    • Dear Margaret,
      Thank you for your question. We have decided to make the full 640 kilometre Ignatian Camino rather than do it in stages. We will probably do the same in 2014, but we have no plans to lead any tours by stages.

  1. Father Michael
    I would be interested in 2014 for the full Camino Ignaciano – but also follow you on your pilgrimage in 2013 – i cannot seem to see the First Stage in your site.

  2. I was interested in doing Ignatian Camino in 2015 and have started to prepare myself physically. I was told earlier during the year that there was a possibility of the 2015 Ignatian Camino happening sometime in September. However, it seems that the 2015 pilgrimage is set earlier in the year. That won’t work for me as a teacher so I guess I’ll have to wait ’til 2016 if I want to do it with a group. Would you know if anyone has done it alone? Thanks.

    • Dear Debbie,
      It is good to hear that you have started to prepare yourself physically for the Ignatian Camino. I have put up a training regime on the blog which you might find helpful:
      We haven’t decided yet if we will offer a group experience of walking the Ignatian Camino in September 2015. If we decide to go ahead with the walking pilgrimage I will advertise it on this blog. The one that is offered 8 March to 1 April is not a walking pilgrimage. Yes some people have done the walking pilgrimage on their own, but if you had a companion I think that would be preferable. It would be quite a lonely walk on your own. There are not anywhere near as many pilgrims on the Ignatian Camino as the Camino Frances (to Santiago), so there would be much less companionship. I think it would be good for you to email Fr Josep Lluis Iriberri SJ and talk to him about the possibilities. I will email you his email address.
      Fr Michael Smith SJ

  3. my husband and i are very interested in walking the camino in 2015 but we need to start planning as quickly as possible. when will we know if there will be a 2015 camino and the dates. with thanks, christine

    • Walking with Inigo – The Ignatian Camino
      Sat 26 Sep – Sat 24 Oct
      Guided by Jose Luis Iriberri SJ 1 month
      In September 2015, a group of pilgrims will walk the 640km pilgrim route taken by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1522 from his home in Spain’s Basque country to Montserrat and Manresa. Pilgrims will be on a month-long outer journey and an inner journey. The outer journey will be well marked. The inner journey less so. For some it will be about forgiveness or reconciliation, for others a new direction or course in life, a confirmation of a major life choice, or a renewed or rediscovered sense of personal identity. The “Camino Ignaciano,” or the “Ignatian way” begins at the birthplace of Ignatius Loyola in Spain’s Basque country, in a village near the small town of Azpeitia. From there, the route proceeds through picturesque mountains, deserts, and plains, before ending in thetown of Manresa near Barcelona. Ignatius rested in this town for some months after his journey from Loyola. Manresa was a place of profound spiritual enlightenment for him. Here he composed his spiritual masterpiece, the Spiritual Exercises. Pilgrims will walk virtually the same route that Ignatius did, pass through many towns that he did, pray at churches where he did, and marvel at the same natural wonders that he saw.

  4. We are a small group from Imdonesia Father Smith, less than 10 people who has the same spirit to do the Camino St Ignatius. We also need a Catalan Priest to help along the journey. So to whom do you think we need to contact for this? Many thanks Father.
