Train from Madrid to Astorga...would there be a bus from Astorga to Ponferrada? And then a stop. The hike from Astorga to Foncebadon isn't bad...pretty flat until Rabanal.

Just an fyi: Foncebadon is my favorite spot on the entire Camino. I don't know why...you know how it just hits you. I hiked from Astorga, got to Foncebadon and had a few beers at 1:00pm and then continued on to el Acebo (which had the best albuergue on the entire Camino). Next time I go, I will definitely be staying the night in Foncebadon. I love the place.

Best day: SJPP to Roncevalles
2nd best: Astorga to el Acebo
3rd best: hiking to O'Cebreiro

best of luck

If not walking, then from Astorga , take a taxi! Train direct to Leon, usually change there for a train-to Ponferrada, with stop in Astorga. In Leon, depending upon when you arrive by train, the bus station (Alsa) is about a two block walk. You can also get a direct bus to Astorga. There are also direct buses from Madrid to Astorga.

Hello again! It looks like going from Madrid airport to Astorga I would take the ALSA bus......does this sound right? They have different trip lengths--are some faster than others? So bad at travel planning and I will be alone so hoping to get it right. Thank you to anyone who can confirm I am (literally) on the right track!

Yes, ALSA is one of the larger bus services in Spain
