    I need to shorten my walk

    Skip the first 3 to 4 stages and start in Pamplona. Had the same issue when we walked in 2018 and it worked perfectly. Finished our walk in 29 days, and kept thr seamless aspect if our walk in tact. To meet people all along your way and then skip over stages would seem like starting over to me...

    Which Camino for both a challenge and the community?

    Any route you choose is sure to be memorable and life changing. I bet it gets In Your blood.

We ended up making it in 28 days by making 3 stages into 2 somewhere in the Meseta I think. we believe we could have done the whole thing but didn’t. Still...

    Camino Del Norte in 10-12 days - where to start

    Thank you for the reply....we would like to end in Santiago, but need a reasonable start point. I believe we can walk about 18-20 miles per day but only have 10-12 days to complete the walk. This is a pilgrimage for us so it is important that we end in Santiago. Is it feasible to start in...
