Thank you for this, most timely as I hope to be doing the León part in November. I think there must be a typo when it says Boñar to Vegacervera is only 15.5km? - Ender's elevation guide to León has it at 27.3km, with about 700m of accumulated height gain.

Yes you are correct.Villfeide should be 14.7km. I will wait a while before I change it in case there is any other typos.

So what were your stages, omicko? I walked this route several years ago, but hope to go back next year, at least for the part between Aguilar and Ponferrada. I remember a lot of asphalt that first day or so, and I won’t have time to start in Bilbao, so the second half will have to do. Can’t wait to walk the new mountain alternatives in the province of León that Ender has marked!

Walked el Camino Frances in 2003. Did the Primitivo in August 13 and Ruta lebaniega in July 14. Summer 2016 - Camino del Salvador.
One day: Ruta de la Plata into the Sanabres, maybe part of the Norte, and perhaps the Olvidado.

That's great information Omicko. Thank you. Did you meet any other pilgrims on the route?
