Overview

The theme of Guys Trip is to walk alongside guys. We believe in doing difficult things together. The Camino de Santiago is a network of ancient pilgrimage routes that eventually lead to the tomb of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago in Northwest Spain. The full duration of the Camino is about 500 miles...we'll be doing one stage of it on this trip; stage one of the French route. Walking the Camino is a physical challenge, a cultural experience and a spiritual journey. You'll have time to reflect on your life and bring into focus areas that may have been put to the side as all the demands and distractions disappear for 3 days. This stage of the Camino will require us to walk anywhere from 9 to 16 miles per day through rolling hills and picturesque countryside so you'll need to prepare before we start. In addition to the 8-12 other Guys Trip brothers on the trip, you’ll meet fellow pilgrims from all walks of life. You'll soon realize the shared experience of walking the same path creates a sense of camaraderie and community. This is an amazing opportunity to make new friends and forge lasting connections! 90 days prior to the trip, you'll receive a training plan (and training products) from a world-renown Doctor of Physical Therapy to help your body prepare for this trip! Virtually we'll train together and check in on each other as a group to help build relationships with other like-minded guys so when we come together on this trip you'll already know the group. This will make the walk that much better!

This trip will be led by Guys Trip Founder, Kyle Depiesse!
