No account necessary. No hidden costs.

Now in their 6th year as a mobile app, and their 9th online, the Wise Pilgrim Guides are the go-to source of up-to-date information on the Camino de Santiago.

The app is updated regularly with new content and new features.

This guide covers the Camino Francés, the most popular route across Spain. It has been redesigned and now works almost exclusively offline. To use the map features, or to share your comments with other guide owners, will require a data connection. As more an more albergues share their WiFi this becomes less of an issue, and the guide will tell you which ones offer WiFi.

Accommodation Directory:
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. Over 900 in total, with special attention to those that can be booked online.

Stageless Guide:
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.

Location Aware:
Every location is geo-coded. Devices with GPS enabled will display actual distance from every point (albergue, church, city, etc.) within the app. Devices without GPS will instead show measured distances between points.

Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 900+ images and growing.

If you have a data connection, or are connected to wifi, you can view the locations of every point on a map. Unfortunately, this feature is unavailable without a connection.

Scrollable Elevation Map:
This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, uninterrupted by page folds.

Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. No registration necessary.

¡Buen Camino and thank you for your support!

Customer Reviews

Many performance issues


I had hoped to use this app heavily on my recent Camino, but it quickly became apparent that this would not be possible. Three big reasons: first, frequent app crashes. I could never isolate the instance that was triggering it. But it happened daily. Second: the app would not bookmark where you currently were located on your Camino. So that meant having to drill down from the top each time. Annoying. The third issue was the most bothersome: tiny typefaces throughout the app that could not be zoomed or adjusted. It was near impossible to read especially on sunny days on the Meseta.

The app needs work. These are not insurmountable problems. It does have a lot going for it in the area of albergue lists and contact info and geo locating maps.

Very good app - straight forward
