Only 3 weeks to travel


New Member
Hi all

I am looking to travel for 3 weeks on the route in June-July. I have to ultimately return to start a job in England on July 20.

I was wondering which part of the route would be nicest to see in 3 weeks? I was told that even if I don't get to Santiago, I can always go back and complete it to get the certificate (which is what I'd probably do since I'm in my early 20s). Accordingly, I was hoping to start from a portion of the route that will be nice to travel in June-July for 3 weeks, even if I have to stop midway. Any recommendations?

I have to also stop by Paris for a couple of days but can do this either before or after my trip-i.e. I can either go London - Paris - pilgrimage and back to London or London - pilgrimage - Paris - London...any thoughts?

Thanks so much!

Craig, there are so many places u can walk in three weeks...For instance, taking the Camino Portugues (beautiful at that time of the year) in (historic) Ponte de Lima, arriving in Santiago, then going on to Fisterra and Muxia. (That portion is pure magic). Most of the albergues in these routes are pretty good. The more time you have, the deeper you can get into Portugal. Buen Camino, xm 8)

I have to agree with xm despite the fact I loved the Camino Francès from France to Burgos. During June-July there will be quite a crowd (I love to walk alone...).

Portugal should be nice and warm.


True - what could be rather lovely is to start at Moissac in France, get to St.Jean and pop over the mountains to Pamplona. That French section is green and beautiful and rolling and great practise for the mountains ahead - and not too busy either, compared to Spain.

When I went to Santiago I started at Moissac and loved that section.

Then, having done that, you can move along the rail each year until you eventually arrive at Sanitago - what fun.
