I wish to do the St-Jacques-de-Compostelle pilgrimage. I am deciding which path would be best for me.
My main criteria is having lots of support infrastructure (albergues, water access, food, etc.) accessible so I don't need to carry tons of gear. As for sightseeing, I love natural panoramas, especially mountains and the like, but not flatlands. Finally, in terms of hiking difficulty, I would like the start to be easy (to gain experience and a good rhythm), but after a while, I do not mind difficulty.
Here are the routes that I'm considering:
Up to St-Jean-Pied-de-Port:
- Leaving from Paris
- Leaving from Vezelay
- Leaving from Le Puy
- Camino del Norte
- Camino Frances
- Camino Primitivo
Any other path suggestions are also welcome.
