Route: Along the French Way – Sarria to Santiago
The French Way or Camino Francés (#caminofrances) is the most famous of all the Camino de Santiago routes, featuring in many documentaries, books and movies such as ‘The Way’.
The last section of the French Way from Sarria to Santiago is also the most social part of the route, where you will meet many fellow trekkers and find the real spirit and camaraderie of the Camino!

Aware relies on the funds generously raised through campaigns such as the Camino walk to deliver our free of charge support, education and information services. Your support can help fund services offered by Aware which provide a safe space where even the most difficult and upsetting thoughts and feelings associated with depression or bipolar disorder can be acknowledged and shared. Our education programmes focus on actions that can improve their situation and alleviate some of their symptoms.
In addition to your flights, the land fee will be approximately €740 (which covers accommodation, airport transfers, luggage transfers daily, breakfast & dinner every day as well as ground assistance). As part of the trek, each participant is asked to raise €1,000 for Aware.
If you would like further information about the walk, suggestions on what to bring and how to start a fitness plan, Camino Way have a selection of free eBooks to help get you started. If you would like to take part in any of the walks organised by Camino Way in advance of the trip, further details can be found here. In the meantime, don’t forget if you’re buying new walking shoes or boots to get them 8 to 10 weeks in advance so you have a chance to break them in. Check out the day-to-day itinerary here.
