" made our experience awesome. The places we stayed; the routes; and the baggage transfer were all incredible. There was never a logistical problem with anything. I could not be more pleased."
David, UK - May 2016
"Perfect arrangements. I asked the company to arrange a two week Camino, one week on France (Le Puy Way) cross the Pyrenees and then one week in Spain (The French Way). All went off without any problems. Good accommodation, set daily distances fair and my bag was delivered safely every day."

We had a terrific week…weather looked favourably on us….walking was great….and in general came up trumps. Thank you for your help in organising a wonderful and memorable trip.
The first week of 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.
