On the tracks of 1000 years of history
The Camino Francés, or French Way, is the traditional route to Santiago de Compostela. Most pilgrims start their journey in St. Jean Pied de Port on the french side of the Pyrenees and walk the 800 kilometres to Santiago. The Camino Francés crosses different region and offers landscapes of dense forests, misty mountain ranges, vast high planes and green wine regions. The great infrastructure, the rich cultural heritage and the many fellow pilgrims make this Camino such a unique experience.
On this special Camino, we offer mixed international tour. In the great tradition of the European pilgrimages, we would like to connect people from different countries. Our multilingual tour guides will give participants all relevant information in English and German, but speak many other languages as well.
