the story of pilgino
Pilgino was founded in 2009 by Ansgar Möller – a Camino Pilgrim since 1990 – out of his passion for sharing the amazing experience of walking the Camino de Santiago.
Today, our Team of Camino experts – every one of us with their own personal Caminos walked – is international and multilingual, like the Camino itself. Organizing self-guided and guided Camnino tours on the different routes to Santiago, and having been part of so many peoples’ dream-come-true Camino journeys has been an incredibly rewarding experience for us over the years. It is our hope that we can help you conceptualize, plan and enjoy your Camino to the fullest, and that we may pass on some of our passion about “The Way” Your Way!
Our goal is to give as many people as possible the chance to experience a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. At the same time, we strive to keep this experience as authentic as possible, and we are committed to supporting the unique infrastructure along the Camino, upon which the true magic of this pilgrimage rests andf depends.
With sustainability of the Camino as our focal point, we have chosen to work together with small, local family-run guesthouses, cafes and restaurants as well as with other businesses and establishments along the Camino that are locally owned and operated.
At the same time, we are fully committed to offering our clients the best value and quality of service. We have kept the costs for our tours offered as low as possible without compromising the quality of lodging and other services, and all of the businesses and establishments we work with along the Camino have been hand-picked for their great value. When it comes to our Guided Tours, our guides are enthusiastic pilgrims themselves, and they will be eager to share their experiences with you.
Luxury – as we understand it in the contemporary, daily life – is not the main priority of any Pilgrimage, and the Way of St James is no exception. Our tours strive to strike a balance between providing all the necessary comforts and encouraging everybody to make realizations that, actually, rather few things are essential to making us feel happy. Camino de Santiago is a special journey, and it gives us perfect opportunities to (self-)reflect, to discover our own bodies’ strength and endurance, and to contemplate some of the great questions of the Pilgrimage: What am I walking towards, and what will arriving there mean to me?
