Walking to Santiago de Compostela

On 19 April I will catch a train to the south of France, almost to the Spanish border.

The next day I will start a 500 mile walk to Santiago de Compostela and beyond to the Atlantic ocean.

I am expecting that it will take me between four and five weeks.

Here are two maps of the route:

The second includes the extension to the Atlantic that I intend to do:

The total is a little over 800 km, 500 miles.

In the event, what happened was that I also walked from Santiago west to Fisterra and then from Fisterra north to Muxia. And then I caught a bus and walked the Camino Ingles from Coruna back to to Santiago.

(There’s an alternative route for the Camino Ingles which starts in Ferrol.)

That made a total of around 1,000 km in 37 days.
