his way from saint-jacques

Do you already know how far you are going to walk? This is perhaps the first question a walker should ask themselves.

  • How long do you want to go on a pilgrimage?
  • How many people are taking part in this adventure?
  • What path do we want to take?
  • What type of accommodation should you choose?
  • How to organize logistics during the trip?

To walk without suffering too much, you have to walk light. This is the big rule for everyone. It is strongly recommended that you pack as little equipment as possible for your hike. Without mentioning bedtime equipment, for those who prefer bivouac, you will find below the almost essential equipment for walking:

  • clothing suitable for all weather,
  • a good pair of shoes,
  • a backpack of 40 L max,
  • sun protection
