Advice would be appreciated

Hi everybody,
My wife and myself are planning to walk part of the Camino Francesin September but only have two weeks. We would like to do the last 100km. However we cannot decide where to walk for the remainder of our time. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I found the section in Galicia quite beautiful. THe first 15k or so after Ponferrada are not special but after that I found many special and very attractive places.

I am intending walking for 2 weeks (12 days with 2 for travelling) from Ponferrada.

This should average about 10 miles a day (16-19 kms) quite easy going (even for a non-walker) and plenty of time to sight see.

From what I have ascertained 2 weeks from Leon is a bit of slog, Astoraga is a better option but still a good walk whereas Ponferrada is easily do-able.

Hope this helps
