Camino de Santiago French Way - Part 2 Pamplona to Logrono

Camino de Santiago French Way - Part 2 Pamplona to Logrono 661 , 6 Days

'La Rioja Wine Region'. This Walking Holiday explores the second section of the Camino Frances / French Way, the most traditional of all the pilgrims' ways to Santiago de Compostela and the best known internationally. Start your walk in Pamplona, famous for its Bull Run festival, and finish in Logrono at the heart of the Rioja wine region. Enjoy an attractive hike in hilly Navarra with its 12th-century castles, picturesque villages, and vineyards. Everyday, during the walk, you are guaranteed a high level of comfort and gastronomy. The Camino is clearly marked with the “Scallop Shell” showing you the way. This walk can be physically demanding and requires a reasonable level of fitness. However, it’s a highly rewarding walk that includes numerous cultural highlights. 

Highlights:
Pamplona – a city, famous worldwide for the San Fermín festival, in which the running of the bulls is one of the main attractions
Alto del Perdon – a panoramic spot with cast-iron “cut-out” sculptures of pilgrims
Clavijo castle – ruins of a 10th Century castle, located on top of an imposing rock
