Uli, welcome! There will probably soon be a whole lot of answers for each and every route! I have only done the Camino Portuguese, and am in the process of researching my next route. So far my personal vote is the Camino Del Norte, as the ocean views really got my imagination going. The Ingles also looks beautiful, but I really would like something longer than a week or so...that's why the interest in the del Norte. Good luck with all you planning!

Buen Camino, Karin :D

We return this week to the Camino del Norte to resume our pilgrimage where we left off last year. We loved it and are very excited about continuing. Here are three photos to tempt you. I could add more but I should get an early night before our journey!





best wishes, whichever you chose!

Bridget

I felt that the Camino del Norte has more natural beauty while the Camino Frances has, perhaps, more cultural significance. I really liked them both and think they both have a lot to offer. I did the Camino Frances first and that route is more special to me but the coastal views on the Norte are extraordinarily amazing. I'm sure any route you choose will be wonderful.
