Hello, I've done the Camino previously however I was just wondering do people think it would be possible to do Saint Jean to Leon in 14 days ????
Gracias !
 
A thought-provoking Camino memoir. This day-by-day account will inspire you.
Original artwork based on your pilgrimage or other travel photos.
That would be really pushing it. :eek:

It took us twenty days in May 2008. You could go faster, but I would keep a plan to take a bus part of the way should a leg give out or something.

Good Luck.

Beginning in early March 2010 it took me 13 days to get from St. Jean to Leon and another 10 days to Santiago. In certain areas I encountered snowstorms, heavy rains and very muddy conditions. I am 53 years old and in good physical condition. So it is certainly possible. As for feeling rushed, that was not the case. Enjoyed walking a solid 8 hours a day at a good steady pace.

Dear Markss,

Would love to hear more about your experience: what type of distances you walked daily and where you stayed. I will be starting off on July 2nd in SJPP and will be walking for 19-20 days. Initially thought that I would make it to Leon but calculating >25 km/day (if all goes well) should make it farther.

Want to stay "off sync" with the standard daily route as described in guides so any info you can supply would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
LT
