    Hi all

    Does anyone have any experience with the via Podiensis?

    I have got 15 days to walk in May this year and I am torn between 3 options...

    1 - walking Le Puy to Cahors...
    2 - walking Mossiac to St Jean Pied de Port
    3 - walking Nogaro to Obanos via the Pol de Somport route

    Does anyone have any ideas as to which one may be the most enjoyable?

    I intend to travel via train so I think the 3rd option may be a bit harder to get to.

    Thanks

    I have not walked that route...yet. But I understand that your three options look like:
    1 - Very mountainous and beautiful for a week then very hilly for the second week.
    2 - Very flat for two weeks.
    3 - Very flat for a week, one huge climb and descent and almost a week of fairly flat land again.

    With that in mind, of the three options, I would choose in this order: 1, 3, 2. Then again, I'm not the one doing the walking. ;)
    Bon Chemin and/or Buen Camino!
