Burgos to Santiago or bust!


New Member
I am doing my camino in two stages over the next two years. This year in May I begin may "asault" on the path starting at Burgos. Has anyone done this split before? I will only have 21 days. I may have to skip some portions of the camino. Are there suggestions as to what sections between Burgos and Santiago may be taxied or bused?

You can do it all in 21 days. If you fall behind, you can take a bus at several spots before Leon and after Ponferrada.

Yes, it can be done in 21 days, but to me it look likes "overplanning", too tight a schedule.
If you'll have to skip some part, you might consider the part between Cstrojeriz and Leon.
But you say you'll do in two years, why don't you start more to the east, like Pamplona, or Roncesvalles? You can make in two times three weeks.
