    Walking the Camino Frances from Pamplona to Logrono map

    French Way 2/8 Day 1Day 1 - To Pamplona - Start of your journey!

    You will be pre-booked in a traditional hotel in the heart of the town.

     

    French Way 2/8 Day 2Day 2 - Pamplona to Puente de la Reina (6h15, 24km)

    When leaving Pamplona behind, you are also leaving behind the Atlantic area of Navarra. From here onwards, the landscape will be dominated by cereal crops, Holm oaks and Mediterranean brushwood. The Pamplona basin is left behind too when you cross the "Alto del Perdon".

     

    French Way 2/8 Day 3Day 3 - Puente de la Reina to Estella (6h15, 22km)

    The Camino to Estella is very uneven and quite agricultural. Small towns and villages are dotted amongst cereal fields, vineyards and olive trees.

     

    French Way 2/8 Day 4Day 4 - Estella to Los Arcos (6h30, 21km)

    Today you go through the Rioja area of Navarra. Enjoy the olive trees, cereal fields and, most importantly, the vineyards. From Villamayor do Monjardin to Los Arcos, you will cover 12km without coming across a single village.

     

    French Way 2/8 Day 5Day 5 - Los Arcos to Logrono (8h, 29km)

    Today we leave Navarra and journey into Rioja. Expect a pleasant hike into undulating countryside. On this route you will pass the stunning ruins of Clavijo castle. Finally we come to the town of Logrono, strategically situated on the border between Alava and Navarra.

    NOTE: If you would like to walk at a more relaxed pace, we can split this walking day into 2 stages (17km & 10km), staying overnight in the village of Viana. Here you will be staying at a charming 2* hotel.

     

    French Way 2/8 Day 6Day 6 - Logrono, end of the Camino

    After breakfast we bid you farewell. Logrono is a city rich in history and traditions that have been preserved since the Middle-Ages. The pilgrim's Camino to Santiago de Compostela made this one of the most important towns on the Camino.
