Berkshire Camino leads locally curated, graciously guided town center walkabouts and town-to-town hikes in the Berkshires, inspired by the experience of the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage walk in Spain.
This is a facilitated experience. Guides lead guests on a mindful walk that invites them to set an intention, walk with curiosity and let a burden go. Guests are welcomed into a safe space that respects the views and needs of adults of all races, genders, gender orientation and preferences. At its best, this is a place where people can connect and breakdown barriers.
The Berkshire Camino experience is ideal for solo travelers visiting the Berkshires and residents who want to engage in a safe, outdoor experience in the company of others.The facilitated experience encourages guests to unplug from daily life and connect with themselves, others, nature and spirit. Guests report that they feel like a weight has been lifted during the walk and leave invigorated and proud of their accomplishment.
Most of the walking/hiking routes connect town centers to town centers using a variety of paths including iconic Berkshire Main Streets, country roads and woodland trails. Venues of historical and cultural significance are visited on some walks including Chesterwood (Stockbridge), The Mount (Lenox), The National Shrine of the Divine Mercy(Stockbridge) and High Lawn Farm (Lee).
