No account necessary. No hidden costs.
Now in their 7th year as a mobile app, and their 10th 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 and offers you the ability to leave tips for pilgrims following behind you.
This guide covers the Camino Portugués and its three most common variations; the Central Route, the Coastal Route, and the Variante Espiritual. It has been redesigned and now works almost exclusively offline (to share your comments with others 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.
A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. Over 400 in total, with special attention to those that can be booked online.
No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks.
Offline and online versions of a beautiful topographical may will give you a good view of the terrain ahead.
Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 400+ images and growing.
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!

(RESOLVED) App won’t open on my new iPhone
Downloaded Apr 27, 2018. When I tried to open it on my iPhone X it immediately closes. I read another review saying to open it 3-4 times in a row. After that it opened and now it works.
This needs to be fixed. Also no way to contact the developer except through this review. That’s why it gets 4 stars.
Now that it is working, it has lots of good information I will be using on my Camino in May.
No contact info!
Type is unnecessarily too small!!
I am trying to use it right now on the Camino Portuguese central route and it is both out of date and missing some critical information.
I realize putting an app together is not an easy task, but this paid one isn’t practical to actually use on the Camino.
There are some major errors in the data and Wise Pilgrim does not offer a way to contact them about it. Overall, it’s not worth getting it.
Developer Response ,
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and it is published on many websites as the way to get in touch to report bugs and errors. I would be interested in hearing about the major errors, as those should definitely be double-checked. Indeed it is a challenge to put together these apps, and for help with major problems I thank all of the users who contact me with changes to share with others. This version of the app also allows users to leave comments, which are available to other users and which come directly to my inbox so that changes can be made quickly. I will take a look at how the type size can be fixed.
Thank you for your support, Michael
