Overview

The Eroski Route is based on the route recommended by the excellent Spanish-language Camino website, Eroski (caminodesantiago.consumer.es/los-caminos-de-santiago/frances/).

The Eroski Route is quite aggressive at just 31 stages, 9 of which are 28+ km per day. This is very do-able for anyone used to long-distance walking, but might be a bit much for those with less experience (especially since many people need to build up their endurance over the course of the Camino, starting at a slower pace then increasing the pace as they go along). However, if you intend to have lots of off-days along the way for rest and exploration (such as at Pamplona, León, Burgos, etc.), then the Eroski Route might still be suitable even for those who would otherwise have needed a slower pace.

The Eroski Route listed here roughly follows the ‘recommended’ route on the Eroski website for the Camino Frances. There are some small differences, but it is mostly the same including the same stage breaks.
