Embark on an unforgettable 5-day journey in southern France, walking part of the most popular French section of the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) pilgrims' route known as the Via Podiensis (or the Le Puy Camino) from Le Puy to Aumont-Aubrac.
The Le Puy Camino is an ancient pilgrimage route that unfolds through southwest France, beginning in Le Puy and ending in St. Jean Pied de Port where it joins the Camino Frances to Santiago de Compostela. The Walk the Le Puy Camino: Le Puy to Aumont tour guides pilgrims on a spectacular 90km section of the ancient trail through France's idyllic countryside and several charming villages along the way.
Starting from Le Puy, you'll revel in the beauty of a superb route flanked by volcanic landscapes as you traverse the Auvergne Volcanoes Regional Nature Park. You'll then continue the sacred pilgrims' trail at your own pace, with overnight stops in Saint-Privat-d'Allier, Saugues, Saint-Alban, and finally, Aumont-Aubrac.
Well-marked trails allow you to focus on taking in the route's remarkably varied scenery, like the Velay massif and the plunging gorges of Allier. With plenty of opportunities to pause in small villages like Le Sauvage, you'll experience the allure of rural France, where gastronomic surprises abound.
