Today, as we are getting ready to celebrate Christmas Eve with our families, I would like to take a moment to thank all our clients for your trust this year in letting us organise your holidays and to send you our best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
This year was our best yet as we celebrated over 750 clientes on the Camino de Santiago from 45 different countries, only 5 out of 5 stars reviews on Google Plus, Facebook y TripAdvisor & our fifth “Best Tour Operator in Galicia” Award. It has been a lot of hard work, but it is all worth it when we are able to greet you in person into Santiago or receive a kind note at the end of a trip! It is due to our wonderful team and service providers (hotels, guides, transporters, restaurants etc.) but mostly to your trust and we are really thankful for it.
So, again I want to wish you a Merry Christmas with your loved ones and that in this New Year you have a hundred reasons to laugh, a dream to live for (maybe to return to the Camino de Santiago), a thousand different moments of joy and no reason to suffer.
See you soon in Santiago de Compostela,

One of the most enthusiast Caminoer we know and a wonderful poet, has just published her first book and the subject is how to prepare yourself for a Buen Camino. So if you are looking for that extra push to decide to embark on this once in a lifetime experience, we highly recommend you give it a read!
How to plan, where to stay, how to pack, what not to miss, and how to have a Buen Camino from the #littleoldladywalking!
Buen Camino! is not a guidebook, there are no maps, no long-winded legends or history – just lots of fun little stories and helpful tips from a veteran American pilgrim to anyone planning their first Camino by themselves or just waiting to go back without the help of an agency or staying in albergues.
Released in December 2017, the book is available for purchase on Amazon ($6.99 US) and will soon be available on Kindle, Nook (Barnes & Noble) and on Casa Ivar’s Camino Forum Store. Continue reading New BOOK Notice: Buen Camino! Tips from an American Pilgrim by Anne Born

Running a small travel agency is not always easy, it means very long hours in the office everyday, some very stressful moments and spending our holidays trying out your own tours but it is all worth it when we receive such excellent feedback and are able to great our amazing clients when they reach Santiago de Compostela.
Receiving an award like this and reading your reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook really gives us strenght to continue each day and reassurance that we are in the right field and leaving a positive footprint.
