    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    I agree that San Sebastián is too nice a city to not spend an extra day in. The 19th c beaux arts architecture of the center up against the medieval architecture of the neck, the 2 beaches, the bay beach full of families, the food! the whole vibe (did I mention the food?). I love that town

    LIVE from the Camino In Bilbao about to leave for Pobeña

    Markina has a lovely hostel on a hill just outside of town. It’s an attractive traditional structure with an albuerge and private rooms. The owner will wash your clothes for you and cook a huge meal all reasonably priced. The front patio is wonderful to hang out and as it’s situated on a hill it...

    Coastal alternatives to the Norte's asphalt

    Thanks to all for your input on this subject. I am continuing my Norte Camino from where I left it off last summer in Bilbao, then taking the Primitivo from Oviedo. I enjoyed the GR paths along the coast until Deba last July and these routes after Bilbao all give me hope to stay off the...

    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    San Sebastián is possibly my favorite city in Spain - the food, the architecture, the beach, oh and the food again. I stayed at “A Room in the City” hostel - very modern, attractive and clean in a fantastic location all for a reasonable price.

    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    The light rail train From Guernica to Mundaka is only about 25 minutes. We had a lovely time there. We spent the night but one could also take the same light rail train from Mundaka to Bilbao at the end of the day which is also a quick trip and spend the night in Bilbao before your flight...

    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    Hi @ciotime - I ran into some issues on my trip that turned out for the best for my girlfriend and I (both fit 50yrolds) last end-July. Firstly I had heard from a Basque friend that Getaria (coming just after Zarautz) was a wonderful, aesthetically beautiful town. When we walked into Zarautz we...

    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    That’s me as well. I never could just lie in the albuerges and rest - I had to explore each little town and soak in just being in Spain!

    For staying on the trail I used a combo of the Buen Camino app and downloaded offline maps on Google maps iOS app to my phone for the region. It worked really well

    Advice needed with Camino del Norte route

    Deba to Markina last July was not easy but you do have some climbs on safe dirt paths and roads. I hike i. The wildness in the US a lot so I found this part didn’t feel that remote (safety wise). The wether was on and off misty so we got some great views sometimes. I’m 50 and fit and did it with...
