Bus from Pontferrada to Piedrafita?


New Member
Hi there

We are planning to walk part of the camino at the beginning of April. We are starting from Leon but only have 8 days to get to SdeC. We won't be able to walk the full distance from Leon to SdeC in 8 days so we are planning to take a bus for a short part of the journey. I have done some research and I think that we can take a bus in the evening from Pontferrada to Piedrafita and then walk/take a taxi the 5 kms to O Cebreiro. Can anyone tell me if they have done anything similar?

Thanks a lot. :D

If I were you I'd consider starting in Astorga or Hospital de Orbigo. The first 30km or so after Leon follow a busy road which isn't good to walk along.
