Comprising six stages, any of which can be booked as a standalone journey, the trip begins at Le Puy in the beautiful, volcanic region of Auvergne and ends at St Jean-Pied-de-Port in the French Pyrenees. Challenging in places and highly rewarding, the Compostela route enables you to connect with the pilgrims of the past as you travel towards the shrine of St James the Great.
