Last Camino Sep 23 Camino Portuguese (Central)
Hi, I'm flying into Santiago on 23rd May and wanted to catch a bus across to Ferrol on the same day, ready to start walking on the 24th.
I've searched RometoRio, Flixbus, Alsa and Monbus and they all say 'no buses', or words to that effect
I wondered if it's because summer schedules haven't been released yet🤔 (or it could be user-error 🙃)
Any advice or recent experience with the journey would be appreciated.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-
Thanks, don't suppose you know when they release them?
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
OK, thanks for that. I'll curb my enthusiasm for a while 😉. Just looking to make sure there would be a service running really
 
We caught a train from Santiago de Compostela to Ferrol in July 2022. The train schedules usually come out 2-3 months before the date you want to travel and there are a number of trains running every day.
Buen Camino.
 
New Original Camino Gear Designed Especially with The Modern Peregrino In Mind!

I echo @Bradypus's comments, it's not generally necessary to book far in advance to Ferrol. For my April camino last year I literally booked my ticket three days before and there was still a handful of empty seats upon departure.
A friend of mine literally just turned up to the bus station in July and got a seat without any issues.
So maybe book a week or two out for piece of mind. I loved the Inglès, it's a lovely short Camino.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Taking the bus from Santiago to Ferrol from Santiago's main bus station (close to centre) generally does not require booking. There are several each day. You can just check the timetable (Monbus) a few days before your trip (and book if you like).
