Hi all. We are walking the Norte/Primitivo from late May and are at the stage where we're planning which places are best to stop for two days. We have decided San Seb. for two, and possibly Oviedo as well. We'd love your ideas! Thanks!

Personally, I'd have some places in mind, but wait until I see how I feel as I walk.

We enjoyed two nights in Santander, Bilbao, Santillana del Mar and Oviedo.
For various reasons, we had planned all our stages, so in hindsight, I would add Castro Urdiales.
Buen Camino

Another possibility to spend an extra day would be to take the alternative coastal route from Santander. It is a wonderful route but will take an extra day. For more details on this route and other alternative routes see the thread started by peregrina: coastal alternatives to the norte's asphalt

@KerryW , there's an additional thread dedicated just to that section:
I concur with Antonius, it is a beautiful route, and definitely one I recommend you follow, a much better option than following the yellow arrows from Santander.
Buen Camino
