    We have all heard of the more common Camino's throughout Spain and I have enjoyed the last 3 CF's I have done, but it is now time for a change.
    I recently found this Camino (Ignaciano) by way of a friend's suggestion. I am opening this thread in hopes someone or someone(s) can provide me with their thoughts and/or ideas on this route.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you.......

    If you are on Facebook, there's a new group, Friends of the Ignatian Camino. Several people have posted videos, slideshows and blogs. Very informative.

    Bob,
    You could do several. Start CF, Invierno to finish. That gives you the old and the new. As yet, decided?

    NYC - I will research this as well. I received an email from someone telling me the Ignaciano was somewhat isolated and that albergues were not as frequent. Anyone here agree or deny these ideas? Thank you all !

    Read the posts in the link I posted above. Don't know for sure but maybe our forum member @MichaelSG (think that was him) also writes a blog.

    EDIT: Yes it was him and the links to his blog are posted in the thread.

    For what it is worth, here is the blog I did when I was walking last year. It also includes the Invierno too (at the end of Oct.). We started in September so this is the link to the month that we began. I crossed the mountain to Aranztazu alone - care needs to be taken. The fog came in, rocks were very slippery, and I had no idea that there were sheer cliffs off to the side! Janet
