European Walk along the Chemin de Saint-Jacques from Le-Puy-en-Velay to Aumont-Aubrac, France.

From the 14th till the 20th of June 2019 there will be a European Walk from Le-Puy-en-Velay to Aumont-Aubrac, France. It is organised by Angelika Albrich, who is an experienced walker.

This 95 km section of the GR 65 is the beginning of the so-called „Via Podiensis“, which is a section of the “Camino de Santiago” or “Chemin de Saint-Jacques”, a path that continues another 1,400 kilometres through France and across Spain until it reaches Santiago di Compostela. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful hiking paths in France. Walking along gentle country roads in the peaceful French countryside you get to enjoy the sight of green hills and small villages. Old stone chapels invite the pilgrims to rest and reflect.
