    Our Camino reflections

    We walked the Geneva Camino in July 2018. To use its correct name, the Via Gebennensis, we left from Geneva and ended in Le Puy-en-Velay a bit over 3 weeks later. This was our second Camino, having walked the coastal Portuguese route last year. The following is not so much a diary of the walk...

    iMiam App for Le Puy to SJPdP

    The people who publish Miam Miam Dodo have said that a new updated iMiam App will be ready to download around the end of March. I used the last one a lot, for all kinds of information. I think it's great. I believe it will be available on Apple and Android.

If any members here have walked it, or might be interested in walking it, can I direct you to the facebook group, Robert Louis Stevenson Trail - GR...

    Le Puy or Arles via the Via Francigena?

    Planning is progressing! After reading Rogers blog, it looks like the Via Francigena from Calais but it poses three new options. 1) Turn right at Geneva to Le Puy route? 2) Go over the St Bernard Pass and carry on to Rome and beyond? 3) Go over the pass and turn right to Arles route? Arles vs Le...

    Your experiences of the Chemin du Puy - tell me about them and help me with my dissertation!

    Dear the kind and generous people of the le Puy forum… I have just got back from an incredible experience on the Camino del Norte, which was background research for my dissertation in World Heritage Studies (MA) at the University of Birmingham; a dissertation, which, in itself, was an excuse to...

    Questions about Le Puy Route (July 2017)

    I will arrive at Le Puy 5th of july. This is my first time walking a camino so I have a few questions :-) What is the path like? Do I need my high mountain shoes or will Trail shoes (Hoka) be enough? I have decided to bring a liner to sleep in. Will this be enough? Is it really so many...

    Le Post Question

    Hey guys, I would like to send an extra pair of shoes ahead to SJPP from Le Puy. I understand in Spain you can send a package to the town post office addressed to yourself and you have maybe a month to pick it up at the post office. Does the Le Post in France work the same way??? Thanks!

    Le Puy (or Geneva) to SJPdP in Autumn

    Hi everyone Thanks you so much for all the info I have from your Le Puy threads. I am looking to walk from either Geneva or Le Puy starting at the end of September 2017 - through to SJPdP. I can not find much information about walking at that time of year and am wondering if it will be too...

    Biking to Le Puy

    Has anyone biked from slightly south of Paris (probably Melun) to Le Puy-en-Velay? It looks like taking Véloroute des Pèlerins (EuroVelo 3) = La Scandibérique to Orleans, then taking the La Loire a velo to Le Puy might work. Wondering about being able to avoid Orleans by heading directly...

    Le Puy route during Easter Week?

    I am thinking of beginning my Camino in Le Puy at the beginning of April. Is there anything I should know about walking at Easter season? Do gites shut down, or are they harder to book? Is there any place near the beginning of the route that I should spend Easter? Are there any Catholic masses...

    Walking from Le Puy for a week - and transport links.

    Hello fellow pilgrims Having completed the Camino Frances in 'chunks' over a few years, some friends and I are planning to walk for 7 or 8 days days from Le Puy, later this year. Can anyone suggest where would be the logical place to finish this section? I'm presuming we will get to St Chely...

    Vezelay to Le Puy

    I'm looking for information about hiking from Vezelay to Le Puy (trails, topo maps, guide books, etc.). I did a search on this site, and the best I found was a thread from 2014, so I'm wondering if anyone has recently tried to take this route? From what I gleaned from that thread, it didn't...

    Le Puy English Guide/Website

    Hello fellow pilgrims, One thing I noticed before I started my Camino was that there doesn't seem to be much English information online for the Le Puy route in France except on this forum (and some small blogs that are sometimes difficult to find and rely on). I did my best to set up a nice...

    Recommendations for linking Le Puy to Del Norte

    Hi, My wife and I are planning to walk Chemin Le Puy, in May 2017, and we are interested to know if there are any options to link up to the Camino Del Norte to SdC, rather than walk the Frances. If anyone has any information or has done this we'd appreciate your thoughts. Regards :-)

    Le Puy guide for new pilgrims

    Hello all! I walked my first Camino in April-July of this year. Best experience of my life! I started in Le Puy and took my time getting all the way to Santiago. I realized early on how much more difficult it is to find information as an Anglophone along the French routes, so I made a website...

    Has anyone taken the short cut from France to Route Aragon via Hecho?

    A couple of years ago I was surprised to find Camino signs and aubergues in Valle de Hecho / Selva de Oza which boarders the French Parc National Des Pyrenees. To further my surprise, I walked to Aguas Tuertas (in the middle of no where (stunning. epic scenery) and met a man who was on the...
