Camino Frances 2012 - SJPP-Finisterre
Have put the Official VF route (red line) and Lightfoot route (teardrops) onto Google maps for comparison / choices - occasionally have inserted shortcuts for various reasons and marked laundromats / tourist offices / different types of accommodation etc.Link below:


This is relatively user friendly and could be handy on your mobile with Google Maps.Will continue to update as we all wait for the Great Day (when we can walk again).

Bonne chance Europe - I hope that you get better soon - kiwiDavid

PS:Just a thought - if anyone who has walked the VF has any particular places they think people may be interested in - you know - those 'must see' / must 'stay there' / must 'eat there' - kind of places (the incredible pizza joint in the middle of nowhere) - please let me know and I'll add them to this map.
(A lot of the places already marked have been gleaned from Pilgrim posts on this Forum and from Facebook - thank you one and all)

That's great. I think potential VF pilgrims should be aware that Lightfoot gives variant routes, which are extremely useful, especially in the Pas-de-Calais where the "official" GR route meanders about for days on end. Lightfoot 2020 would be my recommended guide - available as e-book.

Having been a sweaty long-distance walker and cyclist I genuinely appreciate it when people mark laundromats on maps. Thank you!
