El Camino Del Norte

Did the Camino Frances last September -32 days. Now this coming September want to do El Camino Del Norte. Plan to again take all my gear - tent, stove, water filter. How is the water availability and throwing a tent when tired? Neil in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Hi neil,

I assume you did read the other contributions for the North Route to get an impression. I did make some photo's which you can see at the foto-gallery.
Water: no problem.....same places and quality as on the CF. Camping: don't know exactly....we did see several campings and there are enough refugio's on the route. Not so much as on the CF but enough so it must be possible to camp there, Besides...enough little villages where you can ask. The spanish people are not so familiar with the Camino as on the CF: only the older people know and understand it!

Good luck and buen camino from Holland.
