What is the objective of the ‘Leg’s go in Cammino’ campaign?
With this campaign, we aim to introduce young people to the beauty of the Cammino Minerario di Santa Barbara region. We ask participants to make a donation to support the Cammino, and in return, we offer them the opportunity to stay at managed and affiliated accommodations.
How can I participate in the promotion?
To participate, you must be a young person under the age of 35 and have a credential (the walker’s passport) provided by the CMSB Foundation at a cost of 5 euros. At that point, make a donation through our website or contact the offices of the Cammino di Santa Barbara Foundation. Once the donation is made, you will receive up to three vouchers that entitle you to stay at affiliated accommodations along the Cammino at no additional cost.
How many vouchers can I obtain?
You can use a maximum of three vouchers, choosing from the options provided on our website.
Which accommodations are participating in the initiative?
On our website, in the ‘Leg’s go in Cammino’ section, you can consult the list of affiliated accommodations participating in the initiative.
I would like to take advantage of the promotion, but I will be turning 35 soon. Can I still participate in the initiative?
Yes, but only if you make your donation before turning 35. Once you receive the vouchers, you can use them, subject to reservation and availability, until the 15th of December 2024.
Do children stay for free?
The Cammino Minerario di Santa Barbara is a challenging route. We, therefore, ask you to carefully consider the possibility of walking it with children. However, we inform you that in the Posadas of the Foundation, children under 5 years of age do not pay. Regarding private accommodations, we recommend that you inquire in advance, as the conditions may vary.
I am walking with a child, can both of us participate in the initiative?
Yes, but only if both of you are under 35. If you are over 35, you will need to pay the standard fee for affiliated accommodations, which is 20 euros for the Posadas of the Cammino and 28 euros for private affiliated accommodations.
I am under 35, but I will be walking with a friend who is over 35. Can we both get the vouchers?
No, the initiative is for young people who make a donation before turning 35. Only you can obtain the vouchers at that point, while your friend will need to pay the standard fee for affiliated accommodations, which is 20 euros for the Posadas of the Cammino and 28 euros for private affiliated accommodations.
I have chosen the three-night option. Can I stay in affiliated accommodations on different dates (example: one night tomorrow, another next week, and another in a month)?
No, the vouchers for two or three-night options must be used consecutively, and the accommodations must be booked all together.
Can I participate in the three-night option that spans the initiative’s expiration date?
No. Remember that in 2023, the vouchers can be used from October 15 to December 15, while in 2024, they can be used from January 15 to June 15 and from September 15 to December 15.
Can I choose multiple options with a single donation?
No, throughout the duration of the promotion, you can purchase a single option for one, two, or three nights.
Is breakfast included in the stay?
Can I bring my dog with me?
At the moment, it is not allowed to stay with a dog in the Posadas of the Cammino. Regarding private affiliated accommodations, you need to inquire in advance about this possibility.
Is the donation refundable?
No. Before donating, remember to check the availability in the accommodations along the stages you plan to walk, which are part of the initiative. Keep in mind that once you have booked the accommodations using our vouchers, you will not be able to modify your reservation.
Is there a minimum amount for the donation?
There is no minimum amount for the donation, and you can contribute as much as you like. You may consider an amount based on the number of nights you wish to request.
How far in advance should I book the accommodations?
It is always better to book them well in advance to secure a place. Remember that once the reservation is made, it will not be refundable or modifiable.
