Recommended songs for walking the Camino de Santiago

Staying motivated during your walk is a key to a successful Camino. The best way to make the time fly if you are out walking on your own is to listen to music.

Our tip: Create an album composed of songs that you haven't listened too in a while. This will ignite a trip down memory lane whilst you walk. Another option is create a playlist of your favourite songs that lasts at least 30 minutes or longer. In no time you will have got through your playlist and got your steps in. Listening to your favourite songs can definitely put you in a good mood. You can even pick songs with different rhythms and match your walking speed to the songs - walk faster during more up tempo songs and then take a relaxed pace during slower songs. 

We created this playlist of some of our favorites:


[1] It's a Long Way To Tipperary - Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag - Robert Mandell

[2] David Kinsella - From Leap to Santiago

[3] John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads

[4] Neil Young - My my, hey hey (Out of the blue)

[6] Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world 

[7] John Lennon - Imagine 

[8] Amos Lee - Windows Are Rolled Down

[9] OneRepublic - I Lived 

[10] TobyMac - Move (Keep Walkin’)

[11] S Club 7- Reach For The Stars 

[12] The Proclaimers-500 miles

[13] Miley Cyrus-The Climb

[14] Peaceful Easy Feeling  The Eagles

[15] Bon Jovi - Its my life
