About Cape Camino Hike

The Cape Camino, like its counterpart in Spain, is a walking pilgrimage route around the Cape Peninsula. It is a way to explore this magnificent city and surrounds on foot instead of through the windscreen of a car, and allows one to really get to know Cape Town.

To join the pilgrimage and design your route you have two options: You can sign up on the website as a pilgrim (it's a once-off payment of R380) to receive an infinity passport, which gives you access to the route and maps, information on the sacred sites, discounts and value-adds from service providers and participation in the growing Cape Camino community.

Which gives you the flexibility of designing a route for yourself. Or, conversely, Cape Camino can organise the pilgrimage for you, sorting out all the logistics so that you're free to pilgrim.
