Uwalk Wins 2024 Irish Travel Industry Award

Irish owned Camino specialists Uwalk.ie beat off stiff competition to take home the coveted award for Best Online Marketing Initiative at the Irish Travel Industry Awards 2024.

Uwalk.ie one of Ireland’s leading Camino holiday specialists whose focus is on no-stress walking holiday packages, have Camino walking holidays down to a fine art, offering curated accommodation, daily baggage transfers, detailed walking notes, and local support – as well as the invaluable opportunity to connect with other walkers on their tailored ‘group departures’.

The Camino de Santiago is one of the best-loved historic walking routes globally, attracting over 440,000 walkers in 2023. Uwalk’s Award Winning Online Marketing campaign at the Irish Travel Industry Awards 2024 in the Mansion House Dublin, focussed on bringing this iconic experience to a new market of younger Irish walkers and hikers, who lean more towards wellness, spirituality and nature, and the priceless feeling of presence that comes with walking this iconic route to Santiago. They partnered with author, radio host and avid hiker Roz Purcell, known for healthy living and, of course, her hugely popular “The Hike Life” community. Roz accompanied two highly sought after Uwalk Camino trips in Summer 2023 which sold out with Uwalk.ie within 2 hours, leaving a large portion of her 575,000 Instagram followers ‘Camino-curious”, if not fully ‘Camino-converted”, as they followed the groups progress in real-time stories and reels on the social media platform.

Uwalk run group departures accompanied by a range of notable personalities in various spaces with the most recent group walking holiday launched in conjunction with Cara Byrne, the renowned ‘Hike Psych’, Ireland’s first walk-and-talk psychotherapist which will depart in September 2024. But active holiday-makers are not limited to Camino groups when holiday planning this year; Uwalk has no fewer than 16 walking holiday packages to choose from covering SpainFranceNorthern Portugal and The Algarve, with group and self-guided options available.

Uwalk’s group Camino departures offer an opportunity to walk the legendary and rewarding trail with like-minded people – making connections among Galician scenery and pausing to refuel at those legendary Camino eateries. Many of Uwalk’s packages are perfect for groups – be they hiking or walking clubs, couples or active friends, and solo travellers also gravitate to their organised group departures. Uwalk’s Travel Solo, Not Alone program, has been specifically tailored to cater to sociable solo travellers, with room share accommodation options and talks by a local guide where walkers can meet and break the ice before setting off on a unique experience that many enthusiasts insist is a life-changing one.
