    Just to let folks know that I have completely updated the resource - José Manuel @xmsg and I walked the route in August and have updated all the directions, and refreshed the green arrows. It was fabulous. If you are planning the Primitivo and want to stay off the Frances as long as possible...

    Packing List - What's missing?

    Hi all, Long time reader, first time poster. I'll be walking my first Camino this June/July (Norte, Primitivo and Finisterre). I'm coming in around 7.5kgs skin-out weight before food/water, so about 5kg pack weight depending on what I'm wearing. The weight is okay for my size, but would love...

    Are there GPS waypoints for the Primitivo?

    Do any of you know if there are downloadable GPS waypoints for the Primitivo? I will be hiking next May (my first Camino!) over 14 days from Oviedo. I am hoping to use GPS as a backup in case the routing is not clear. Any help will be greatly appreciated... Tim

    Backpack transfer on Camino Primitivo?

    Hi all, I am thinking about walking the Camino Primitive in June/July 2018 (you know what they say, the best cure for Camino-homesickness is to plan another one!). I walked the Camino Frances in 2016 and the Camino Portugues in 2017 (just arrived back). Because of a dodgy left knee I simply...

    Hey folks, With the current fires in the region does anyone know if there is public transportation (aka buses) serving any or all of the above villages? If the fires are still affecting some of these areas and stretches of the Camino I'm wondering if I can catch a bus to the next "safe"...
