Explore the Iconic French Way
The Camino Frances (or the French Way) is perhaps the most famous of the nine major Camino de Santiago routes. Its 800KM of trails have inspired many artists, writers and filmmakers – such as Paulo Coelho in his bestseller The Pilgrimage and 2010’s Hollywood movie The Way starring Martin Sheen.
The Camino French Way traditionally starts in St. Jean-Pied-De-Port in France, before traversing the Pyrenees and continuing through the La Rioja wine region and along the rolling hills of northern Spain, before finishing in Santiago de Compostela, the burial place of St. James.
Whether you walk the Camino Frances route to take quality time with friends and family, solo to rediscover yourself, to get away from the hustle and bustle, or for personal fulfilment and enrichment, the experience you will have on the French Way of Saint James will stay with you forever.
