"CaminoWays.com 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."

"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."

The first stage of the Camino Francés, the French Way, starts in the pretty walled town of St Jean Pied de Port in the French Basque Country and takes pilgrims across the Pyrenees, into the city of Pamplona and finally to the picturesque medieval town of Estella Lizarra.

This is one of the most challenging stretches of the Camino de Santiago but also one of the most spectacular ones, particularly if you take the ‘Napoleon Route‘ over the Roncesvalles Pass (1450m). The views of the Pyrenees are definitely worth the effort!

If you are travelling in July, you might be able to catch the world famous San Fermín running of the bulls festival in Pamplona.

Along the Camino Francés route, you will meet fellow pilgrims from all over the world, as St Jean is one of the most popular Camino starting points.

This trip is also available as a guided tour, see: Camino Frances Pyrenees Guided.

Dear Roland and Alexandra,  I have just returned to Arizona and want to thank you all for making my Camino walk great! All reservations were ready for me when I arrived. Couldn’t have been better. The Hotels in my 2-night stays were great! If you need a 74 year-old representative in the US let me know!!!!!!! Thanks again
