This is the toughest stage of the Camino, crossing the Pyrenees from St Jean Pied de Port and on to Pamplona. You will feel a sense of achievement, but it is also the start of an extraordinary journey and you will meet some amazing people along the way. 

Walking Style:

This is a guided walk, however, our style is very different from most organised walking holidays.  We are keen for everyone to walk at their own pace.  If you want to take photos or videos or perhaps you are a super speedy walker, or just like to take your time, then our style will suit you.  You have the choice of walking with the group or walking on your own.  All we ask is that you meet us for a daily walkers briefing where you will be given places to “check-in” on the Adventure Geek app.  Safety is our number one priority. 

Type of trail:

You will follow a historic pilgrimage trail, in the footsteps of generations of travellers. 

This trip is suitable for:

If you are able to walk a minimum of 10 miles comfortably, then you will have no problems with this section of the Camino.  I would highly recommend adding some hill training before you set off as we will be walking over the Pyrenees mountains (although it is a track and there is no climbing on this route) – see videos for the terrain.

Ideal if you:

  • Are you at a crossroads in your life? Many people find closure or answers to life’s problems on this trail. 
  • Interested in a spiritual journeys
  • Religious reasons 
  • Personal Growth
  • Historical Journeys

Grade & Terrain

The trail consists of a mixture of dirt tracks, minor roads and footpaths.  There are steep inclines on the first day, and then a forest trail into Roncesvalles on day two.  We spend one day walking alongside a river and there are many cafes along the route where you can grab refreshments. Grade: Moderate. 


You have the choice to walk with the group or head off on your own.  If you decide that you wish to venture off on your own or with friends, then the Camino is very easy to follow. The route is marked with yellow painted arrows and a yellow shell on a blue background. The

You will receive a travel pack which includes a detailed guidebook with maps etc. In addition to the guidebook/map, you will also have access to our Adventure Geek App, allowing you to follow the route on your smartphone (full training will be provided)
