Mont Blanc Ascent

Firstly may I just say I absolutely loved the Mont Blanc trip, and when talking to the other climbers who had gone with other agencies, our trip had the best mix of mountain huts, walks and training, so thank you, it really was superb.

The Way of St James - Aumont to Conques

Traverse the centuries of time and the borders of Europe on the medieval pilgrim trail of Compostela. In the 9th century, the tomb of the apostle St James was unearthed in Compostela. The site became the focus of a pilgrim trail beginning in France, and crossing northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. This journey, along the Via Podensis, the French Way of St James, takes pilgrims from Le Puy en Velay to the Pyrenees at St Jean Pied de Port. The route passes a multitude of churches and monasteries, resembling a travelling museum of Romanesque art. This section takes you from Aumont-Aubrac through to the charming town of Conques. Six stages of this historic trail are included in our self guided walking program in France.

traveller reviews

The length of the trip was perfect for an introduction to the French Camino. The daily distances were well planned and the countryside was lovely. All the hotels we stayed in were good and the set menus were fine.It was a wonderful experience. Additionally the walking is without anxiety as the Camino signs are prolific and so easy to follow.
