Walking a green trail through rural France

For verdant scenery that's easy on the eye, this route can't be beaten. The trail from Le Puy takes you through the Central massif uplands and then cuts diagonally across the middle of Southern France. Winding its way through forests and fields, river gorges and rolling hills, it is a truly beautiful walk.

Explore the heart of France amid a succession of fairytale villages

We absolutely loved our Camino experience. We walked from Sarria to Santiago and the whole experience far surpassed expectations and was certainly the highlight of our trip to Europe.

Well, where do I start. Brooke and I have had the most wonderful time on our Camino trip. Everything was just perfect. We can't thank you enough for organising what has been a truly amazing experience.

We have just returned from our Camino trip and I just wanted to send a quick thanks.

It was beyond what we expected, everything went well, accomodation was all great, luggage transfers went without a hitch, daily kilometres a good mix.

And then there was the Camino, still trying to find the right words to describe how special a walk it is.

Experience the most beautiful of the camino routes

The Le Puy Camino (Via Podiensis) is deservedly one of the most popular walks in France, though it has far fewer walkers than you’d encounter on its Spanish cousin. It is a beautiful route that crosses rugged central France and 745km later joins with the Spanish Camino in St-Jean-de-Pied-Port to continue all the way to Santiago de Compostela.

Follow in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims and traverse the ages of living French history as you walk through beautiful, medieval villages, pass by historic churches and cathedrals, and cross over centuries-old pilgrim bridges, many UNESCO World Heritage listed. Immerse yourself into the local and changing cultures, gastronomy and dialects throughout the journey.
