Kerry Camino

Nordic Walk the Kerry Camino

The first three days (roughly 65km)  of the Dingle Way is also known as the Kerry Camino. The story goes that Saint Brendan (born along the North Kerry Way) travelled from Dingle and across the seas to spread Christianity, eventually reaching North America. Pilgrims in the past would also sail from Dingle to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago, so Dingle is a fitting place for the Kerry Camino.

We had a fab trip with Hidden Kerry in 2022 completing this walk. We highly recommend them for anyone wishing to do the same.

Multi day hiking training plan

Although it is not entirely necessary to be super fit for walking the Kerry Camino the experience will be much more enjoyable if you have some level of fitness before you set out, however, this is not an Iron Man competition and should not be approached as such. Our 12 week training programme will prepare you for the trip ensuring you will be free from injury with less aches and pains and able to enjoy this wonderful experience.

Training, like life, is about steady effort – not trying to make big jumps in intensity every time you train. When you train with others it is more fun and you motivate each other to keep going.
