The Camino HemingWay, first section of the French Way
The Camino HemingWay traces the first part of the French way starting in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port on the French border to Pamplona. But we have added a Hemingway twist to this Camino. This unique walk is arguably one of the most scenic, challenging and rewarding of all the itineraries we offer.
And now, it can also be a journey through time and literature.
In only five days, you will experience French gastronomy, cross the Pyrenees, discover the legendary Basque country and arrive in one of Hemingway’s favourite Spanish cities: Pamplona, where he wrote a masterpiece ”The Sun Also Rises”.
You will also stop near Burquete, on the Irati River, where Hemingway was fishing for trout and resting after the San Fermin Festival. Then, on arrival in Pamplona, you will visit the city in the footsteps of Hemingway: have a drink in Café Iruna, take a picture at the Hemingway Monument and enjoy the local specialities favoured by Ernest Hemingway.
