Cammino di Santiago – Routes

La Voie Littorale

Route Information

General Description: La Voie Littorale (or La Voie de Soulac or la Ruta de la Costa) closely parallels the west coast of southwestern France. ~350 km starting at the Pointe de Grave at the mouth of the Gironde then leading down the coast through or very near to numerous small villages to Irun on the French-Spanish border where it joins the Spanish northern routes.

Waymarking: The route is well marked with posts painted yellow on the top or with a yellow arrow. On sections that coincide with GR8, the red and white flashes of the French Grande Randonnée routes also appear.

Terrain: Closely paralleling the French coast as it does, the route is extremely flat.

When to go: This route can be accomplished any time of the year but the vacation times of July and August will place heavy pressure on accommodations. Climate table for La Rochelle.

Accommodation: There are no pilgrim-specific albergues but there are small hotels and chambres d’hôte in all villages. Accommodation might be problematical in high tourist season. Pre-booking is possible and is advised for hotels and chambres d’hôte.
