6 DAY FRENCH WAY (SELF GUIDED)
Pamplona – Logroño
The French Way is the most famous Camino route to Santiago de Compostela. It runs from the eastern side of the Pyrenees at SJPP to Santiago de Compostela in the Northwest of Spain, extending to a distance of 780km. This route follows earlier Roman trade routes and traverses the Pyrenees, beech and pine forests of Navarre, the vineyards of La Rioja, the Meseta of Castile until it reaches the mountains and oak/chestnut forests of Galicia.
This 6 day walking experience takes you over the second section of this Camino from the city of Pamplona, famous for its bull running event in July to the capital of the Rioja wine region, Logroño.
On the first walking day you leave Pamplona, in the Navarra region in a westward direction to the town of Puente la Reina, with its beautiful Romanic bridge. Day 2 you continue on paths next to vineyards and through charming villages to the cobbled streets of Estella, located at the foot of the Montejurra mountain. From Estella you will pass the Pilgrim wine fountain, famous on this Camino route to end in the village of Torres del Rio where you will find a church built by the Templar Knights, before ending your final walking day in the pre Roman City of Logroño.
This trip is ideal for people who have walked the first section of the Camino from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Pamplona and wish to continue the entire Camino to Santiago de Compostela in stages over a number of years.
As part of this trip, you will stay 5 nights in 3 or 4 star Hotels and a high quality Rural House with breakfasts and luggage transport between your accommodation. Around-the-clock emergency assistance is also included which adds confidence to the detailed walking notes which covers landmarks, distances and things to see over the course of your walk.

Quote of the day:
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
