    Pilgrim Mass and Botafumeiro

    This past May through July, I walked the last part of the Norte, from Oviedo/Avilés, the last two days of the Francés, served as a volunteer in the Pilgrim Office for two weeks, and then walked to Finisterre and on to Muxía. During this time, I did the Mass reading 37 times in various churches...

    Starting the Camino del Norte on April 28th - any advice?

    I plan on starting the Camino del Norte on April 28th from Irun. This will be my first Camino, and I am stoked. However, I have heard the Camino del Norte during this time of the year can be pretty rainy, and I am questioning whether or not to do the French Way instead. Any words of advice...

    Del Norte, Primitivo, Portuguese or Francesco

    Hi all, My partner and I are looking to walk our next Camino in August 2018, after having previously walked Francés in 2016 and 2011. We’d like to explore a different route and we are both fit and open to something a little more challenging the Francés. Our favourite things about the Camino...

    Santoña ferry operating?

    Hi, everyone! I’m on the Camino del Norte and saw on the Gronze website that the Santoña ferry between Laredo and Santoña doesn’t operate in the winter. Does anyone know if it’s currently operating? I’d love to take the coastal route to Noja that day!

    A Thank You for your Help and Link to Santiago Masters Thesis

    Hello, Back in the summer I had just come back from the Camino del Norte and asked the forum for help with my Masters thesis by completing a survey. That thesis is now written, marked, and I graduated in December! (I got a distinction, by the way ;)) Given the meagre word limit of 15,000...

    To finish where left off or to start over?

    I did the Camino del Norte mid June to August 2017. My first one. I never made it to Santiago de Compostela, getting on a bus finally in Oviedo to catch a friend ahead of me. Then a few more days of walking with them to Ribadeo and then home. The camino had its own plans! Now I find myself with...
