This trip combines the wild cost of Asturias with the tranquil, but tough hills of Galicia. We have added in a rest day in Ribadeo to this schedule due to the intensity of the walking days. This section takes you along the coast of Asturias through an area that is rife with history. From prehistoric remains to Roman ruins and a plethora of old churches and cathedrals, there is history round every corner of this section. The port of Avilés was important in the establishment of the USA and the gardens at Selgas, with their medieval towers are said to rival those of Versailles. This is a wild, lesser-visited part of the route, but one full of wonder. On the final section of the Camino del Norte you head inland, away from the coast as you make your way through the mountains of Galicia. You will see many gothic graveyards and impressive old cathedrals as you pass through this forgotten corner of Spain and then once you reach Arzúa you connect with the Camino Frances for the final days into Santiago.
