After finishing the camino frances, i now want to try a el camino del norte and starting up in july doing the stage from irun to bilbao. I would be grateful if any of you could recommend me some goog books/guide books on the camino del norte.
What is the price level like, compared to the camino frances? Is one week from Irun to Bilbao ok?
