Virtual Camino Walk - Camino De Quarantine

Walk 114km, fundraise for Focus Ireland and learn all about the Camino.

Click HERE to get started!

Virtual Camino Walk: challenge yourself to walk 114km (the last section of The French Way) in 5 weeks or less and fundraise for Focus Ireland.

Due to current travel restrictions and lockdown nationwide, we have started our Virtual Camino to keep you active while staying safe this January and February. The immersive experience includes walking notes from each town so you can indulge in the Camino Culture while walking on Irish soil.

As you log your distance, you will also receive updates about which town you are approaching next, recipes on typical meals along the way, related books, films, podcasts and playlists to keep you in the Camino spirit!

Last but not least, your online fundraising page will give you passport stamps (similar to the actual trip) for each town you reach. Once you have collected all your stamps and reached your fundraising goal, Focus Ireland will post you your certificate of completion.
Thinking of getting involved in the Virtual Camino at a later date? Well look out for our competition to come thanks to Follow The Camino for donating amazing prizes including Fitness Trackers and vouchers.

I had a wonderful experience on the Camino with Focus Ireland. The accommodation was perfect – lovely clean & bright rooms providing hearty meals after a long day of walking. I loved every minute & couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
