The Camino del Norte is often said to be a more authentic pilgrim experience than it's sister walk, the Camino Frances. The route is a lot quieter and a lot more challenging, but the rewards make it well worth it. Some of the most amazing cities in Spain, not often visited by tourists, some of the worlds finest cuisine and a really strong bond between pilgrims on the route, combine to make this trip one to treasure.
There are so many different sides to this trip, whether you just want to explore the dynamic first section from San Sebastian to Bilbao, the final section from Ribadeo to Santiago, or immerse yourself in the north of Spain and walk the full route.
We offer five different self guided stages of the Camino del Norte in Northern Spain, but we can change this to tailor the trip to your exact needs.
