- Year of past OR future Camino
- Camino Frances (St Jean to Belorado; Astorga to Santiago)
I'm thinking of starting the Camino del Norte next May (all things being well!) and would like to walk the alpinista route from Irun to Pasajes, because the views sound spectacular. However, I'm a bit nervous about how tough it might be. How does it compare with the route over the Pyrenees on the Camino Frances from St Jean to Roncesvalles? I found this ok, but I did spend the night at the albergue in Orisson, so didn't do the whole thing in a day. Would be useful to know how these two routes compare. Thanks!
