    Camino del Norte, tent or no tent??

    Hello all, I'm starting my camino from Bilbao on 6th June 2019. I still can't decide to take my tent with me or not. In my reasoning, pros of taking the tent: saving some money, enjoying quiet nights (I hear a person or two might snore in albergues), sleeping in nature. Cons: the extra weight of...

    del Norte in winter?

    I'm thinking of hitting the Norte in February - is this doable? IE will there be any albergues open? I really NEED to walk!

    Doing Norte route - hopefully Spring or Autumn 2018 - but getting freaked out by weather...

    Hi everyone!! This is my first post - finally - but I've been lurking on these threads for quite some time and finally decided to start an account and ask a question! I keep seeing conflicting information regarding weather for the Camino del Norte / Primitivo (I plan to do the whole 860km) for...

    Has anyone used baggage transport on the Del Norte?

    I blew out my knee in March (the first time I walked 14 klms with a full pack) and X-rays showed that my kneecaps are subluxed. (there is a surgery but it is only 50% successful - not worth the risk) I've been going to PT, learning a new way to walk. I also have moderate inflammation (CRP is...

    San Salvador or Del Norte?

    I'm planning on walking the Camino in June 2018. I want to do at least 600km of which my mother will join me in Oviedo to do the original route. I'm having trouble deciding if I should do Del Norte or the San Salvador (with maybe a little bit of the French route also). I prefer more nature and...

    Tent outdoors.

    Hello! Tell me, please, how acceptable is to spend the night in a tent in the middle of a forest, a beach or a meadow? Without making a fire, but just to sleep. How severe are local laws and people to such pilgrims? Private property or something like that. This is my first pilgrimage, but I...

    Recommendations for linking Le Puy to Del Norte

    Hi, My wife and I are planning to walk Chemin Le Puy, in May 2017, and we are interested to know if there are any options to link up to the Camino Del Norte to SdC, rather than walk the Frances. If anyone has any information or has done this we'd appreciate your thoughts. Regards :-)

    Del Norte in high season, 2016, we biked

    I found this forum so helpful, I promised myself I would write something on return. Finding info, especially in English, seemed difficult before we left...so here is the stuff we thought might be useful to others: We biked Santander to Santiago finishing 20 August. We took 19 days. We were the...

    Where are the peregrinos?

    I'm in Bilbao, on my way tomorrow to San Sebastian. I thought I'd see at least one pilgrim at the airport or on the street. Nada. I saw one back pack on the carousel that had safety pins hanging off it. Suspicious. Then I found out my bag was in another room. Hope to see someone soon. I'm lonely.o_O

    Bike rental suggestions, Camino del Norte

    We are struggling to find reviews of bike rental companies in Spain. We are going in August, so figure we need to book. Any good or bad reviews of the main bike rental places would be really appreciated. We will start from Santander (finish in Santiago de Compostela). Most of the bigger...
