The Camino De Santiago
Stage 1 – Self Guided (Camino Frances)
St Jean Pied De Port – Pamplona – Logrono (Choice of destination)
The Camino De Santiago is a long distance trail with its origins in many countries.
The final destination is in Santiago De Compostella in North West Spein. This is the way of St James and is the most famous walking route in the world.
This section covers the start of the most popular route, The Camino Frances (French Way) starting in St Jean Pied De Port in France and taking in the first few days of the Camino through the Pyrenees and into the Navarra and Rioja regions of Northern Spain. This is a wonderful part of the trail and will give you a real taste of this famous walk.
The trail is a real delight and you pass through so many small villages and towns where you can stop and enjoy a glass of wine and talk to others you are sure to meet along the way. There are also a few cities along the way on this section including Pamplona (famous for the running of the Bulls and Hemingway) and Logono which is another beautiful city full of fine restaurants, cafes, shops, museums and of course the wonderful wines of Rioja.
Apart from the walk in the Pyrenees you are usually not too far from one town to the next along this trail so food and drink can be bought along the way. Bringing just a small packed lunch and water to get you along your way.
