In September 2018 join us in Bilbao to walk along the Camino del Norte beside the Bay of Biscay. This 13 day tour is supported with luggage transfers and long distance transport. A highlight of walking on this trail in the European Autumn is the chance to observe harvest festivals and sample fresh farm produce.
If you have already walked another Camino trail and are keen to re-live this ‘once in a lifetime’ experience – then the Camino del Norte is for you! Those new to Camino walking should also consider this option. Active walkers and photography buffs who appreciate extraordinary scenery need look no further! Our journey into Galicia is via the rural coastal regions of Cantabria and Asturias.
The highlights of this pilgrim pathway are strikingly varied. The Camino del Norte is situated amidst some of Spain’s most spectacular scenery. On the left are the distant snow-capped peaks of the Picos de Europa, the highest mountain range in northern Spain. On the right is the azure Cantabrian Sea. We follow yellow Waymarkers along cliff-top paths, sandy beach trails and shady forest tracks, beside grassy fields, streams and wetlands. Our pathway passes through innumerable rural hamlets and charming fishing villages, with church spires regularly appearing in the distance.
Part way along this route the Camino del Norte meets the Camino Primitivo. At this point we head south towards the historic World Heritage city of Oviedo. The tour ends in Santiago de Compostela and includes three days walking through the rugged and picturesque Finisterre peninsula. See itinerary.
