Le Puy French Camino

Walk through the most beautiful medieval villages of France

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.
