New Food Lovers walk with Mary Moody along the French Camino

October 25, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Australian author and food lover, Mary Moody, is combining her passion for fresh produce with her love of exploring, to lead a new walking tour in 2018 – a “Food Lover’s Way of St James” walk in France.

UTracks, the active Europe specialist, has announced Mary Moody will lead a 12-day guided walk along the French Way of St James in both May and September 2018.

Mary Moody’s love affair with the cuisine and landscapes of south west France, (which is well documented in her best-selling memoirs), has seen her make her second home directly on the Camino trail.

Her specially crafted Food Lovers’ itinerary combines the essence of the Way of St James pilgrimage with the region’s many culinary delights including delectable cheeses, wines and truffles.

Beginning in Le Puy en Velay in the Auvergne, the journey on foot takes in the best sections of the Camino between Le Puy and St Jean Pied de Port, including time in the historic and beautiful towns of Conques, Rocamadour, Saint Come d’Olt and Saint-Cirque-Lapopie.

Along the way, travellers will lunch at a small 100 year old family restaurant, (featured in Mary’s book “Lunch with Madame Murat”), enjoy wine and Armagnac tasting, market visits, truffle hunting demonstrations, home-style cooking and fine dining experiences.

Travellers will have no trouble building up an appetite with 10-15 kilometre walks scheduled for most days.

Accommodation along the French Way ranges from restored convents to countryside inns and family run hotels.

The new Food Lover’s French Way of St James costs from $6190 per person (twin share).  More info at or 1300 303 368.
