Crossing from Primitivo to Norte - the Camino Verde from Lugo to Sobrado

Just to let folks know that I have completely updated the resource - José Manuel @xmsg and I walked the route in August and have updated all the directions, and refreshed the green arrows. It was fabulous.

If you are planning the Primitivo and want to stay off the Frances as long as possible, enjoy the tranquility and stunning scenery away from the crowds for a couple of days, and stay with the monks at Sobrado, this option will hopefully appeal.

I walked that area 10 years ago and I found it absolutely beautiful, rural, wild and remote, particularly compared to the Francés. Most recommendable, indeed! It was already very well marked, 10 years ago.

I am going to see about setting up a separate sub-forum on the Primitivo for this alternative. There are lots of posts from people who have enjoyed it a lot, and it would be good to get them all in one place. Stay tuned!
I just messaged Ivar about that very thing

I did not dare to go that way because the stage to Sobrado seemed to long!?

Any updates on the Verde? Still well marked? Two of us would like to do this alternative from the Primitivo leaving Lugo in a few days (11 June 2019) assuming we can make a booking in Friol and that it is reasonable in wet weather.

It looks like one can stay in Friol, then walk to Sobrado and then is there one more stop before Santiago?

I do not know about any updates on the Verde, but I am planning for next year to go from Sobrado to Lavacolla,, splitting off from the Norte at Boimorto, again avoiding the Frances until the last 10 km into Santiago.

Found this in resources: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...-lavacolla-and-avoid-the-hordes-at-arzúa.681/

Buen camino whichever way you go!

Sorry for the lack of updates, José Manuel @xmsg and I met in Santiago last summer but we were unable to walk the route to refresh the arrows or check the directions as his mother was in hospital after a serious accident; this was therefore last done in 2018. We hope to do so this summer. Please let me know any updates or feedback from the route in the meantime.
