Saint jean Pied de port - logroño On Walkabout

With your coach on a 10-day pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela

From Saint Jean Pied de Port to Logroño

Take a break from your everyday life on your Walkabout. With all the time for yourself you can be open to new experiences. Walking at your own pace, enjoying nature and culture along the way will relax and bring you closer to yourself. After this journey of reflection you will return different. Fit and energetic. 

Where do we meet?

We will meet each other in Saint Jean Pied de Port, a gorgeous village at the foothills of the Pyrenees, traditionally the starting point of the Camino Frances. 

What does your journey look like?

Once through the city gate of Saint Jean Pied de Port, you will feel the energy of all the other expectant fellow pilgrims, who, just like you, are about to start on their journeys. Here, you will pick up your pilgrimage passport, look for an inn or hostel for the night, we will get acquainted with each other, and set your intention.The next morning, we will start the Camino by walking part of the first stage to Roncesvalles. We will stop at Refugio of Orisson, where we will spend the night. After dinner together, something special  happens. The host will invite every pilgrim to stand up. He will ask you who you are, where you are walking towards, and why you are walking the Camino. To be a witness of all the other pilgrims and their reasons for walking gives one a feeling of togetherness and of having a communal goal. The next day we walk into Spain, through fairytale forests, over winding paths, through picturesque villages to the very cozy city Pamplona. Here you can eat the most delicious pinxtos. Walking through the  vineyards we reach our final destination: Logrono, the wine capitol of La Rioja, located on the river Ebro. Santiago de Compostela is still several hundreds of kilometers away. But you have tasted the magic of the Camino!
