The Winter Way - Youth Exchange in 2021

DSC_0757 (1).jpg

This Erasmus+ project took place in summer 2021 between El Bierzo and Valdeorras, where we bring together participants from four countries to walk and discover together the Camino de Invierno, the route of the Santiago's Way  that crosses Valdeorras. They were days of long hiking days, with cultural visits, activities and workshops on the pilgrimage experience.


For whom?

The youth exchange brought together 20 young people from four countries: Spain, Turkey, Romania and Bosnia & Herzegovina (4 participants + group leader).


The objective was to value heritage and promote a sustainable tourism through the example of Santiago's pilgrim Way, to promote respect and understanding towards other cultures.

Where and when?

The project took place walking along the route of the Winter Way, covering 110 kilometers on foot between Molinaseca and Vilamartín, during 7 days (07/07-07/14 2021).

The team

The facilitators of this exchange were Lucas DocampoJulieta Fusaro and Álvaro Docampo with the support of Alexandra Galkina.

Eating together after each long day, talking about our lives and dreams, listening to lots of advice and different realities has given me the courage to do things I hadn't thought of before.
