    Dear Fellow Pilgrims, Thank you for your responses, concern, and compassion. I want to reassure everyone that I am okay and that my intention in posting here is to protect and alert others who may seek information before going on the Camino del Norte. I read the alerts from others before...

    Alert to Women Pilgrims about Capilla del Cantu - Asturias, just after Cantabria

    Dear Pilgrms, I have just returned from the Camino del Norte and enjoyed this route very much, hard though it is. I am writing today to alert other pilgrims about my experience at Capilla del Cantu just as one enters Asturias. A Google search brings up good pictures of this very little chapel...

    Hot off the presses — Guide 2019

    Hi Peregrina2000, I definitely want to. I have already begun semi-planning for it. I wish you the best journey and will hope to hear about it in the forum. Thanks for all the info on the alternative routes. I hope to take all or some. Weather isn't looking nice for the mountain climb when I...

    It's going to be difficult not to detour off the Camino del Norte when I start next week. Thanks for posting. How beautiful.

    Anyone have experience starting the Camino in Biarritz? Advice?

    BiarritzDon- Le Puy to Cahors was a lovely walk. A lot of up and down. Expect shorter stages than Frances for sure. The countryside was beautiful and memorable. I was sorry to leave it after less than two weeks time.

    Anyone have experience starting the Camino in Biarritz? Advice?

    Yes, flying into Biarritz, arriving in the early evening around 6 pm. Thought about taking a bus whatever transportation possible to Ciboure, stay overnight and then walking the coastal alternative into Hondarribia (ferry) and then onward.

    Anyone have experience starting the Camino in Biarritz? Advice?

    Thanks! Good to know. I'm struggling to decide where exactly to start the walk. Irun/Ciboure/Biarritz/Hondarribia...too many choices. Time is ticking.

    Anyone have experience starting the Camino in Biarritz? Advice?

    Thank you again for some great advice. I didn't calculate correctly I realize. Biarritz to Hondaribbia is quite the full day. I was hoping to avoid the urban way through Irun and stay on the coast all the way in to Hondaribbia, but now need to rethink that plan in favor of a Spanish Sim card...

    Anyone have experience starting the Camino in Biarritz? Advice?

    Dear Forum, I'm thinking of starting in Biarritz instead of Irun as I have time and will, after all, be landing there. I have the French book, Rando edition, which starts in Bayonne, so it seems very possible, but it is dated: 2006. My goal, in this case, is planning the first stage from...

    Seeing your post from 2016 about Ciboure and the Hotel la Caravelle. I'm arriving in Biarritz on the 23 in the evening to start my Camino North and was wondering if you know if it is easy to get to from Biarritz via train or bus to Ciboure, and if one can walk along the coast to bypass Irun...

    Suggestions for place to stay in Irun/San Sebastian

    I'll be arriving in Biarritz around 6 pm on May 23, which means it is likely the albergue will be full by then. It seems wise to book a pension or room somewhere, but I am not sure in relation to where the bus is going to let me off where best to do so. Does anyone have some suggestions...

    Irun?

    Can you recommend a pension in Irun?

    Necessary to book in advance?

    Thanks to all for this splendid information. Pasajes is looking like a good idea for breaking up the first day after climbing and descending with possible jetlag. I will play it by feel when I arrive. Now to find a place in Irun for the evening arrival.

    Necessary to book in advance?

    Thanks for this reply. Is Casa Txurdin in Pasajes or in Irun? I am not so clear from your message. I am thinking of stopping in Pasajes depending on my jetlag and whether or not I take the higher alternate route over Irun. I'm concerned mostly about arriving in Biarritz at 6 pm, then getting...

    Live on the Norte

    Thanks for taking time to report in from the field. Oh no, is what I am thinking. This is exactly what I don't want to have to do on the Camino and is a negative side of our technological age. I assume that there will be even more pilgrims when I arrive. Couldn't leave earlier unfortunately...

    Irun to San Sebastian GI-636 or GI-3440

    Am I correct in seeing on the alpine route via video that there is a narrow path where one can hold onto a steel cable? I would like to take the higher route, but that looked a little intimidating for anyone afraid of heights. Can someone confirm...console?

    Necessary to book in advance?

    Thanks to all for the replies. I'm going to relax about things. The jet lag is also a factor I have been thinking about. I arrive very early in Biarritz on the 23 and am contemplating heading out right away for the walk but will also think about an overnight stay before I begin. So much more...

    Necessary to book in advance?

    I will be walking the North Route beginning May 23 from Irun. I would like to ask if it is necessary to book my overnight stays in advance at the albergues now that technology seems to be offering that. I really don't want to feel the pressure to do so as I won't always know how far I will be...
