      You probably need two overnights in Lourdes which gives you a full day to poke around. It’s an interesting town.

      Lourdes is an easy train ride from Bayonne. It’s an interesting pilgrimage town, but of a different sort than you’ll find on the Frances.

      Hi, Some brief comments: Shoes - wet feet are no fun (blister risk goes way up), but odds are most of your Camino will be dry. Tradeoff comfort and fit for waterproof any day. However, a light weight compromise would be to consider a single...

      Used properly poles are always going to be beneficial, whether is is on slopes or on the flat. Mine never leave my hands once I am walking - that is the only place that they belong to get any benefit. That said, they are not essential, and you...

      Scott Fraser replied to the thread Weather in early may.
      I walked through snow and freezing rain at the top of the Napoleon Route on May 1st, 2018. Last year in early June I walked through a cold, driving rain (thunder storms) on the same stage. Really cold weather is unlikely, but it happens. It's...

      G'day, Like others I will strongly recommend the Célé Valley route. The entire walk is great but the thing that is not to be missed is the caves at Peche Merl, a 1 km or so north of Cabrerets. It is a remarkable experience to come face-to-face...
