Almost 4000 Australians walked the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) in 2015
6/30/2016
​Hundreds of Australian pilgrims travel every year the Camino de Santiago. Last year 3855 Australians completed the Way of Santiago walk. The number of Australians who travel the road has increased 800% percent since 2004.
 
The Way of St. James has represented an important pilgrimage route for centuries especially through the French Pyrenees and from other parts of Spain leading to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela.
 
Through cities, villages, valleys and mountains, you can enjoy landscapes that will change every day, with mountain trails, forests and open plains.
 
The three most common ways to make the ‘Camino’ are by walking, by bike and by horse riding.
 
There are different paths you can take to Santiago de Compostela, the most popular is the Camino Francés (French Way), a track of 800 kilometers that begins in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the French Pyrenees and which goes to the 220px-Jakobsmuschelsymbol.jpg

Spanish  border. The French path could take about 36 days to cross it on foot, with an average of 20 to 25 kilometers a day. Other popular paths are the Portuguese Way, the Northern Way, the Via de la Plata and the English Way.
