Hello

I walked 500km of the Camino last summer (starting in Burgos) and now I would like to start in France and walk to Burgos (walk for 3 weeks). Can I start in Toulouse and are there refugios from there to SJPP?

Thank you for your response or any suggestions (o:

cheers

Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

€149,-

Starting in Toulouse

Toulouse is on one of the four traditional routes through France, known as "The Arles Route" or the "Via Tolosana". There is a C.S.J. Guide "4. Arles to Puente la Reina" and also a French Guide "Le Chemin d'Arles".
There is some accommodation specially for pilgrims or walkers, but in places one has to rely on hotels or bed and breakfast. The route goes over the Pyrenees by the Somport Pass and down into the valley of the Aragon. Well worth walking.

I found that the CSJ guide needed updating in 2005-- you may wish to check on their website to see if updates have been provided. An Australian I met could not find any accommodation in Pibrac (the first day out of Toulouse)-- I started from Pibrac, having taken a taxi there (24E) from the airport. One problem I found is that the waymarkings are not always clear and you should be prepared for extra time to find your direction.

There is very little Camino-specific accommodation or albergues as there is in Spain, but the French are great hikers and there are a number of gites. However, I found myself relying on small hotels a great deal of the time.

There are not a lot of pilgrims on this route, but the people are extremely friendly and helpful, and I found much support from locals along the way.
