Travel Insurance for the Camino de Santiago
You will almost certainly need some kind of insurance to cover you health and possessions while walking the Camino de Santiago. The insurance on offer to you will depend on your own personal health situation and from which country you are resident of. Most insurance policies will cover hiking as an outdoor activity, but always check the small print yourself to ensure it’s covered. The max altitude on the French Way is around 1600m, so you should be covered to that height.
