People have been walking the Camino de Santiago for centuries, and it’s one of the world’s great hiking adventures. The remains of St. James are said to be buried in the cathedral in Santiago, in northwest Spain, and every year thousands of walkers set off from points in Europe to walk the Camino, or Pilgrim’s way. The small Pyrenees town of St. Jean Pied de Port is the starting point for many; from here it’s about 780 km o Santiago, and the route passes through some of Spain’s best scenery. If you’re walking the trail it’s tradition to get your pilgrim’s ‘passport’ stamped at points along the way. Most people take between 30 and 40 days to walk the Camino from St. Jean, and whether you’re walking to keep fit, for spiritual reasons or to deal with a mid life crisis, it’s a memorable experience.
