10 days in France and Spain

$5690 per person

(airfare not included)

We’ll meet in the picturesque town of Saint Jean Pied-de-Port on the French side of the Pyrenees. This revered Camino route traverses mountainous and flat terrain with breathtaking scenery. After crossing over the Pyrenees (think Sound of Music!), we’ll enter a beautiful valley full of fertile green pastures and charming towns.

Our walking journey ends in the Northern Spanish City of Pamplona, which inspired Ernest Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises.” This lovely old town is home to stone-paved streets, cafes, and many historical sites to explore.

After the Camino, we’ll take respite for four days on the Southwestern coast of France. These legendary beach towns are known for their long sandy beaches and Basque culture.

Included:  Guided hikes, single occupancy accomodations where available, pilgrim dinners on the Camino, breakfast while on Respite, and daily restorative movement and self-care from Janice and Liz throughout our time together.

On the Importance of Pilgrimage:

Walking in nature harmonizes us with the rhythm of life; doing so with a community is empowering. We are committed to cultivating and offering you opportunities for physical and spiritual connection. We’ve found that carving out space for these journeys allows profound personal growth.

On the Importance of Respite:

Taking Respite cultivates a new body ecology. Taking time for ourselves to self-reflect, wander, and explore invites awe and brings nourishment to the body and mind. Our restorative time together includes day hikes, guided meditation, journaling, self-reflection, and recovery.
