In September and October 2022, the French Hiking Federation (FFRandonnée) and the European Association of Via Francigena ways (EAVF) are organising a series of hikes open to the public and free of charge, called “J’aime Francigena“.
Three walking events lasting 2-3 days each are on schedule, taking us through some of the most significant stages of the Via Francigena cultural route in France, named GR®145.
Here is the programme:
Hike 1: from 21 to 23 September between Vitry-le-François and Brienne-le-Château (Grand-Est, Marne et Aube)
Hike 2: from 30 September to 2 October between Bruay-la-Buissière (Parc d’Olhain) and Blessy (Hauts-de-France, Pas-de-Calais)
Hike 3: from 7 to 9 October between Mamirolle a Saône and Besançon (Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Doubs)
Each of these free group walks along the Via Francigena will be on average 10-12 km per day and the group will always be composed of a certified guide, who will present the local cultural heritage, representatives of local authorities, the FFRandonnée and the EAVF, a professional photographer and video-maker, and some bloggers and influencers, as well as all walkers, citizens and tourists who wish to participate.
