The Cornish Camino starts here

Imagine two weeks in Cornwall, backpacking on a pilgrimage to St Michael’s Mount, following in the footsteps of the Cornish Saints with a pilgrim’s passport and carrying all you need for your journey, on your back!Each night, you stay at an affordable hostel (£15 to £20), in a bunk room with fellow pilgrims, in a friendly place with self catering facilities available and a communal area in which to get to know your fellow pilgrims.Your passport is stamped at each place you stay and records your progress on the journey. The passport also gives discount at shops, cafes and bars along your route and makes you feel a little special.
When you reach your destination, St Michael’s Mount, there is a pilgrim’s office, which, upon production of your stamped up passport, issue you with a completion certificate in recognition of your achievement having walked 250 km of path from your starting point at the Port Elliot Hostel in St Germans.You have had a fantastic journey, walking substantial parts of the Cornish Coast path, across the county on the pilgrim paths of long ago. You have met and socialised with some amazing people from all over the world, different age groups and backgrounds and you’ve enjoyed every minute of it!Congratulations, you have just had the time of your life, it hasn’t cost you an arm or a leg and you have some new friends with whom you shared this fantastic socially inclusive adventure and hunger for more similar journeys in beautiful locations around the world.Imagine no more, this journey will soon be for real and you can sample today the hospitality of a pilgrim’s hostel in Cornwall by staying at Eden’s Yard Backpackers, close to the Eden Project and the Saints Way.
