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 :)

Frances, Norte (twice)and Primitivo, Sureste, In France From home Tours and Vézelay, also Le Puy.
Or the Gr 10, or the GTC, which is the horse route running parallel, but lower down. Need to be able to read a map for either of them.

Thanks for the information Jill and Barbara, I'll have a look to see what I have on my maps etc.

also, is there any potential to head north west from, say, Navarrenx to Saint Jean de Luz or Irun rather than go to Saint Jean Pied de Port and then head north?

Regards, Kenton

You could veer off the GR65 just after Arthez-de-Béarn; walk or taxi to Orthez, and get the train to Bayonne / St Jean de Luz? Jill

I've posted about this today at forum Camino Norte, and see now that I should give you the information here as well.
I have made a new video from GR10, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Hendaye / Irun.
This stretch of the Pyrenees is a great way to connect the route from Le Puy in France (GR65) and Camino del Norte in Spain. (My video from Camino del Norte has this name: Camino del Norte, Camino de Santiago in France and Spain, Part 6)


You find some comments on this forum here:

There are several good guidebooks in various languages for this route.

Hope this will help you.

G'day,

Thanks to all for the advice.

I think we'll consider options as we get closer to SJPP with possibility to walk GR-10 from SJPP or walk from Saint Palais to Irun. We really like the potential to walk the GR-10 Pyrenees but perhaps "the way" will lead us to our choice.

In the interim we are reading our Miam Miam Dodo, training, practicing our French (& Spanish) and, as always, getting excited as our time gets closer :)
