A week's walking from Astorga to Santiago supported by Walks in Spain was amazing. This father/son company has worked hard to provide the very best experience of walking part of the Camino way, offering great accommodation along the route. Solo travellers need not worry about second rate rooms. The accommodation I had surpassed any on a similar holiday
They also catered for walkers of all abilities, offering to take them part of the way so that they could enjoy some of the unique Camino experience. Would not hesitate booking a similar holiday they were offering, knowing now their attention to detail.

If you like to walk or hike, this is the activity for you - a great way to experience the beautiful region of Galicia. There are many Camino trails across Spain that eventually lead to the beautiful old section of Santiago de Compostelo and its old cathedral. Spent six days walking from Sarria and it was a fantastic experience!

Last October, we began the Camino de Santiago in St. Jean Pied de Port – and spent a little over two weeks on the Camino section hiking Pyrenees route CHALLENGING but magnificent. May this year we returned to pick up & continue.
It works for us as we don't have 30 to 50 days off to do it straight through. Each Perregrino ( or pilgrim) has their own path & we hike 11-17 miles each day and research our path to Experience ... Many , many Templar chapels, truly amazing bits of history & antiquities on & nearby the Camino trail we are not willing to miss on a quicker pace

In Aug-Oct 2016, We hiked the entire French Route going from St Jean de Port, France to Santiago in 39 days. We stayed overnight an extra day in Pamplona, Burgos, and Leon. They were rewarding rest stops. Stayed mostly in hostels. Back then there were new hostels opening up all along the route. Even the older ones were great.

We only had a few weeks off so we decided to walk from St-Jean Pied de Port to Burgos. This part is considered to be the most beautiful on the Camino Frances and although i haven't seen the rest, the views and towns are simply amazing. The first day over the Pyrenees should not be taken lightly. It is difficult but doable. You also have the option to split it in two by walking to Orisson (make sure you reserve the Albergue in advance) then walking to Roncevalles the following day.

Don't kid yourself the rest isn't much easier but this is how we walked it.
1. We made sure that we took a 5-10 min. break every hour/hour and a half, taking our backpacks off and stretching.
2. At lunch time, we made sure we took off our walking boots and let our feet air out.
3. We didn't rush through it. We took our time but we had opted for private rooms instead of dormitories so if people wanted to make sure they had a bed then they walked faster but if you travel in Sept/Oct getting beds should not be a problem.
4. We took a day off every few days (4 or 5th day)
5. Proper gear is also very important

These tips worked really well for us and we seemed to be the rare few that didn't get injured or got sick,

All in all a great experience and looking forward to Part 2 : Burgos to Leon!
