Hey!

I just learned from the tourist office in Bazas that parts of the Vezelay route are closed due to forest fire. Does anyone (maybe a native French speaker) have more info for me on the matter?

Kind regards,
Janus

There are very intense fires on the west coast of France in the general area of Bordeaux and Les Landes. See more here. Where are you now?

Thank you! At the moment I am in Saint-Ferme, close to La Reole. I am thinking about walking untill Bazas and than take a train to SJPDP for the Frances camino.

That should be a good plan. Here is another update re the fires in the Gironde area where you are today.This is a list of roads and cycle paths closed.
Before you walk further south make sure that you can get a train from Bazas.

Stay safe and keep up with the news.
Please also keep posting what you see as you go.
Godspeed.

After Captieux the route is closed (because after this the camino goes trough a lot of forest). Alberges are only open in de morning, untill 14:00.
