Camino Stage 1 & 2 St Jean-Pied-de-Port to Burgos

  • Begin at the official start point of the Camino Frances, St Jean Pied de Port in France
  • Cross over the Pyrenees and the French/Spanish border on foot into the town of Roncesvalles
  • Overnight in Pamplona and Burgos - two of Northern Spain's most historic heritage cities
  • Meeting fellow pilgrims, hearing their stories and travel tips along the way
  • Enjoy the wine and vineyards Logroño - the capital of the Rioja wine region
Walk the first two stages of the Camino from St Jean Pied de Port, which straddles the French and Spanish border, to the medieval city of Burgos. Crossing the Pyrenees your first day will undoubtably be the toughest day of the whole Camino. The steep climb up to Roncesvalles is demanding but will be graced with stunning views all around. The high mountains and deep valleys of the Pyrenees soon give way to the undulating plain that surrounds the fortress town of Pamplona. As you approach Logroño, the regional capital, you cross into the well know wine growing region of the Rioja. As you continue towards Burgos, the landscape is dominated by vineyards. The Camino then takes you through crop fields with small brooks and oak woods until you reach the Oca Mountains. As you reach Burgos you make your way down into the valley of the Pico river and then you reach the medieval city of Burgos, with its spectacular gothic Cathedral.
