Camino Madrid/San Salvador/Primitivo-2021
This year I walked SJPdP to Santiago. I would like to try the French side next year. Is there much difference hiking in France versus Spain?

Ultreya,
Joe

If you go from Le Puy to Santiago...the difference is about another 500 miles :shock:
That would make it a nice round 1000 mile sojourn. I hope to do this in the near future.

There is a Le Puy forum which is very well posted.

I would describe walking in Spain as a pilgrimage with other pilgrims, while walking in France is a pilgrimage with the French. It is a bit more expensive; demipension dominates unless you self-cater. The churches and chapels are generally open. Most pilgrims call ahead and reserve a day or two ahead. Be sure to cancel reservations you do not use, so that the bed is opened for other pilgrims. The country is closed on Sunday and Monday, so plan food purchases accordingly. I have not met anyone who regretted walking in France. I prefer it to Spain, but the Camino Frances is the infrastructure that makes it convenient for repeat walks.

Falcon....
How far is it actually from Le Puy to Santiago? I see various distances listed for the normal direct route to SJPP and then on the CF to Santiago.
Where would you have to start to do 1000 mile (1620 km) and still be on the Camino? :?:

It depends who you believe. These two signs were within 100 meters of each other leaving Le Puy.

:shock: That is 177 km difference...Almost 6 days walking at 30 km per day :shock: ...and much more if the 20-25 km average is used.

Is there a site somewhere that has somewhat accurate figures on it. Seems pretty straight forward, but then again...... :wink:

Then one would have to start about 100 km before Le Puy to actually cover the 1620km (1000 miles).
Where would that be if you were to try to stay on an established route?
