Hi I am a student studying in Madrid and am itching to get back on the trail. I have 6 days to hike, so I chose the scenic route of San Sebastian to Bilbao.
I have a basic itinerary of where I will be staying each night and the distances of each segment, however I can't find any maps or...
was just watching TVE news and they showed parts of the mew Feancis Bacon exhibit. Many say, when visiting Bilbao, that the building is better than its content. Well, while the building is magnificent this is one exhibit I wish I could see. If yo're on the Norte, you know what to do when in...
I'm flying into Bilbao this week, and out from Oviedo next week (because those are the best flight options)... what recommendations to you folk have for 6 days walking between those two points? Are the albergues still open this time of year? I'm not so fit... is there a less challenging section...
Yesterday I had a really sore throat so I went to the farmacy to get some pills. I guess they aren't working on me, I just woke up with a closed throat unable to swallow anything so I guess it's time for some antibiotics. Does anyone know an English speaking doctor in Bilbao?
I am just wondering has anyone travelled from Bilbao to Pamplona by bus? I had booked two tickets for two weeks time from the bus company La Union and I have had serious problems with them (site went down, transactions went through twice, received no tickets!) after a dozen emails...
I'm going to be walking the Norte/Primitivo/Finisterre in June/July - made my flight reservations a couple of days ago! Can't wait.
I almost always miss one or more of the arrows/shells in big cities - there are so many distractions! From what I've read, the way into Bilbao might be a bit...
In May June we walked from Irun to Bilbao, and in Sept-Oct from Bilbao to Vilalba. I did a long blog post on the trip, and am summarizing here.
First, we were hiking with injuries, so about 23 km was about our limit for a stage, and less was much better. We are quite experienced with Camino...
Currently on camino del norte some guide books say 30-35k to bilbao from Gernika, can anyone advise correct distance snd how long it took, what is the route like ie elevation, type of walking etc,,,,thank you
I need to get from Fromista to Bilbao on 24th September 2015 in mid to late afternoon. I have absolutely no Spanish so I'm hoping some one can offer advice before I leave for Cmaino on 1th Sept.
We are starting our camino in Bilbao, next Monday.
Does anybody know if we can get our credencials in Bilbao, and where?
I didn't realize we were supposed to get our credencials before we start.
I just assumed we could pick them up at the first albergue.
Now I am panicking because we don't have...
Hi - I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy kinesiotape in Bilbao. I have been checking in pharmacies along the way and haven't found any. Bilbao is a big city so I'm hoping I can find some there. Thanks!
Hi - I have looked around the forum and haven't found anything about this so hopefully y'all can help me.
I keep reading about how there are 3-4 different routes from Bilbao to Portugalete but they are all "Ugly". Can anyone tell me which one is the least ugly and how I find it?

My cousin and I are arriving in Bilbao at 9am on Monday, June 30. We are trying to make it to St Jean Pied de Port that night.
Here is the plan, please critique:

-From the Termibus, purchase a ticket for the PESA bus to Bayonne...
We (Three of us) are arriving in Bilbao on Sat June 28th at 3.30pm. We want to get to SJPDP that evening but the bus to Bayonne seems to only run twice daily and we'll miss it. Any suggestions??? Bus to Pamplona and then taxi??? Also would it be possible to organize our Camino passport...
