Camino de Santiago – 780km in 26 days.

Hey again. Gonna make a post about my distance, path and time it took me to walk all the walk.

Camino de Santiago (Camino Francés) starts from a small town in France, Sait Jean Pied de Port. It’s just over Pyrenees close to the Spanish border in the North.

Santiago de Compostella is a finish line of the walk and is 780km away from Sait Jean Pied de Port.

At the French town, I was given a “map” for the walk which had a listing of small towns on the way with distances between each that town. So it would be easier for  walkers to plan their daily distances and routes. According to this “map-planner”, the trip should be 34 days long. Well, most of the people didn’t follow the pre-planned distances anyway. Sometimes it was way cooler to stay at some small or micro villages on the way. Here is how’s the map looks like:


You can see the altitude and terrane change here too. Pretty cool, eh? 🙂

I did my 779,6km (according to the maps I used for distance calculations) in 26 days and in 174:06 hours of being on the road. Haa, 😀 it seems like it is possible to do the route in 7 days – if you walk for the 1 week all the time without any sleep nor rest.

I was keeping a detailed “journal” of my walking distance and time. But here you can see bit simplified version of it. You can see how my distances and walking times were changing from day to day. Most of the time I was walking straight all the way. Maybe having a couple of 10 min. rest stops. Later on in the walk I started to do bit more stops to let the feet rest.
