Frequently asked questions about the French Way

What to take in your backpack to the Camino de Santiago?

It is possible that your first intention is to fill your backpack or suitcase. From experience I will tell you to forget the "porsiacasos". On this Camino, we will pass through countless towns and even cities with all the services, and you will have industrial washing machines to have your clothes ready and prepared for the next stage. So just take care of good shoes and socks, mackintosh, sleeping bag, and 3 or 4 changes of each garment. If you want to know more, we leave you this post on what to bring to the French Way.

How to get to Sarria?

Thanks to being the point where most pilgrims begin the Camino de Santiago, it is perfectly connected with all the cities of Spain. It is possible that you come by plane, our recommendation is that you look for a flight to Santiago de Compostela, round trip, as from Santiago to Sarria there are buses and other private companies. If you choose to travel by coach or train, you should look for direct services to Sarria or, failing that, to Lugo. You should also look at other alternative options such as Blablacar or carpooling with other members of the group. If you want more information about how to get to Sarriawe leave you with this article.

What is it and how does the service of transporting backpacks on the Camino de Santiago work?

There are many pilgrims who decide to carry their backpack during the stages, and others who prefer to hire this service. If this is your case, you don't have to worry about anything or let us know in advance. On the first day of the meeting, in the meeting we will have with our monitor and where we will meet the group, you can hire it for a cost of 25€, which will include the transfer for the 5 stages, and there you will be given a label to place in a visible place on your backpack or suitcase (which cannot exceed 8 kg in weight). You will leave your luggage every morning when you wake up and you will have it at your destination hostel.
