No account necessary. No hidden costs. Now in their 7th year as a mobile app, and their 10th online, the Wise Pilgrim Guides are the go-to source of up-to-date information on the Camino de Santiago. The app is updated regularly with new content and new features and offers you the ability to leave tips for pilgrims following behind you. This guide covers the Camino Portugués and its three most common variations; the Central Route, the Coastal Route, and the Variante Espiritual. It has been redesigned and now works almost exclusively offline (to share your comments with others will require a data connection). As more an more albergues share their WiFi this becomes less of an issue, and the guide will tell you which ones offer WiFi. Accommodation Directory: A full directory of Albergues, camping, hotels, pensions, paradors, and cases rurales. Over 400 in total, with special attention to those that can be booked online. Stageless Guide: No more "stage anxiety" or guide created bottlenecks. Maps: Offline and online versions of a beautiful topographical may will give you a good view of the terrain ahead. Photos: Photos of albergues, monuments and other points of interest along the way. Currently 400+ images and growing. Scrollable Elevation Map: This one is hard to show with just a screenshot, but the elevation that appears at the top of every city page scrolls East to West. One complete elevation, from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, uninterrupted by page folds. Comments: Albergue closed early for the season? Have a restaurant that you want to share, or perhaps one to warn others about? Every location in the app gives you the opportunity to leave a comment and to read the comments left by others. No registration necessary. ¡Buen Camino and thank you for your support!



  • App won’t show Redondela info

    By atxhummingbird
    I’m using this app for the Redondela to Santiago route. When I click on Redondela, it flashes the info then immediately goes blank. This happens on both my iPhone and iPad. The info on the other cities seem to be working. Help! I leave for my Camino on June 17!
  • No contact info!

    By hogosan
    Type is unnecessarily too small!! I am trying to use it right now on the Camino Portuguese central route and it is both out of date and missing some critical information. I realize putting an app together is not an easy task, but this paid one isn’t practical to actually use on the Camino. There are some major errors in the data and Wise Pilgrim does not offer a way to contact them about it. Overall, it’s not worth getting it.
  • Won’t work on iPhone X

    By CA MOON
    Hi, I’ve purchased this app and cannot get it to work on iPhone X is there an upgrade or fix for that ?
  • (RESOLVED) App won’t open on my new iPhone

    By LGLady
    Downloaded Apr 27, 2018. When I tried to open it on my iPhone X it immediately closes. I read another review saying to open it 3-4 times in a row. After that it opened and now it works. This needs to be fixed. Also no way to contact the developer except through this review. That’s why it gets 4 stars. Now that it is working, it has lots of good information I will be using on my Camino in May.

  • Online maps is not working!! **update!

    By Nachjer
    I am a few days into my Camino, and the online maps are no longer working. I've depended on this app so far. I've deleted the app, and re downloaded-- but no luck. I don't see how to contact the developer to ask if it is going to be fixed. Could really use some support!! Normally love the app! I will change my rating when it gets fixed. **maps have been down for 24 hours. I checked my Frances Route app I purchased from Wise Pilgrim, and the maps work fine. But obviously you can't see the Portuguese Route on the Frances app. I'm disheartened that there is no way to ask the developer what's going on. And that the app has been down for 24 hours. (That really matters when you are on day 5 of the trail). Update: got ahold of the developer and he is promptly fixing the issue. He found the bug, and has submitted it to Apple. Hopefully they move quickly!
  • Maps?

    I just updated and I have a data connection and maps don't load at all.
