Join Camino for a Cure and raise funds for Parkinson’s research in Australia

As part of this incredible adventure, over 10 days you will discover the many wonders of Spain.

On arrival in Madrid, Spain’s bustling capital city, you will set off on a guided tour, exploring the city’s highlights from past to present. You will then travel beyond city limits to embark on the Camino de Santiago.

From Sarria to Santiago, you will trek under the shade of old oak trees into peaceful hamlets set against the rolling green backdrop of Galicia. At night, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine.

On what other adventure can you follow in the footsteps of the Romans, the Knights Templar, pilgrims and modern day adventurers to Santiago de Compostela?

Best of all, with every step you take, with every kilometre you cover, you will raise vital funds to help Shake It Up find a cure for Parkinson’s.
