Take on the first 110km of the French way in our guided group tour through the Pyrenees.  The French Way, the famous Camino Francés starts in the walled town of St Jean Pied de Port in the French Basque Country, and takes pilgrims across the Pyrenees and into the city of Pamplona, world famous for its San Fermín running of the bulls festival. This is one of the most challenging sections of the French Way Camino route but also one of the most beautiful, especially if you follow the ‘Napoleon Route‘ over the Roncesvalles Pass (1450m). The views of the Pyrenees are definitely worth the effort! Along the route, you will meet fellow pilgrims from all over the world, as St Jean is the second most popular Camino starting point.

Visit the city of Pamplona (Iruña in Basque), world famous for its San Fermín running of the bulls festival, taking place from 7th July every year. From Pamplona, the Camino takes pilgrims to the photogenic pilgrim sculpture at Alto del Perdón, where you will enjoy fantastic 360 panoramic views of Pamplona, the valley and the vast countryside ahead, before continuing on your way across the mountains of Navarra and the red earth vineyards of La Rioja, passing medieval bridges, castles, churches and picturesque villages along the way, such as Puente de la Reina, Cirauqui before finishing in the town of Estella-Lizarra.

The guided tour departs on specific dates only and the next available tour: September 9th 2017 (FULL).  For help, contact us.
