Camino French Way

French Camino Stage 3, Burgos to Astorga

Camino French Way

This is the Camino French Way or The Camino Frances, starting from the Pyrenees across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. The French way is the most popular and well-travelled of the pilgrim roads to Santiago. Three of the main routes through France (from Paris, Vézelay and le Puy-en-Velay) feed into it from the French side of the Pyrenees whereas the fourth, from Arles, joins it 3 to 4 days later (walking) in Puente la Reina.

The Route, some 778km long, begins either in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (“St. John at the Foot of the Pass”) on the French side of the Pyrenees or 27km later in Roncesvalles (Roncevaux in French, the “Valley of Thorns”) in Spain. It passes through Pamplona, Puente la Reina, Estella, Logroño, Burgos, León, Astorga, Ponferrada and Sarria before it reaches the “City of the Apostle” inGalicia. The route takes, on average, four to six weeks to complete.

Adventure Holidays offers different self guided walking and cycling tours on the Camino Frances. You can choose an individual stage, a couple of stages or the whole route from St Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela.

If you enjoy the independence of a self guided holiday or perhaps the company of a small group guided holiday we have something for you.

 

Your Accommodation

Where you rest your head after an active day is hugely important to us. We go to great lengths to find properties that are unique expressions of the region you are travelling through. Think of them as the charming and intimate garnish atop your trip. 

Whether nestled in the heart of a village or lost in the countryside and surrounded by nature, all accommodations are chosen using a strict criteria of comforthospitality, and authentic charm. We like to use locally run independent small hotels, guest houses and B&Bs instead of the larger “chain” hotels.  All of them are hand-picked, visited, and re-visited by our local partners. On most of our holidays you will be staying in different hotels and their  uniqueness and individual character only adds to the enjoyment of your holiday. You will also benifit with knowledge that your trip is contributing to local economies, and supporting local family run businesses.

You will be welcomed in a double or twin room (2 beds) – based on double occupancy.
All of our rooms have private bathrooms.
Individual rooms are possible upon request when you book; they are subject to availability and incur a supplemental fee.
For biking trips, all of our inns have a safe place to keep bicycles for the night

On some of our holidays we offer different type of accommodations. i.e.,  guesthouse and boutique hotels. If this is not listed as an option ask us and well try and arrange what suits you. If you have questions about the accommodation, require an upgrade, have a specific dietary requirement just ask us using the enquiry button on the tour page or give us a call.
