Has anybody walked from San Vicente de la Barquera to the Monasterio de San Toribio and then walked/bus back to the Camino del Norte? Please share your stages, availability of albergues and anything else that might help me to plan it. Thank you kindly!
 
The 9th edition the Lightfoot Guide will let you complete the journey your way.

I have walked to the Monasterio from San Vicente, but I then continued on the Vadiniense to León. I think that if you will be going “out and back” you can just repeat your stages. Gronze has good information.

Thank you kindly! I would like to avoid the Frances though. Maybe I will just count the walking days left and bus me where needed or something similar.
 
Bus leaves from Potes. Timetable here https://transportedecantabria.es

It is possible to stay two nights in the Potes albergue.
Thank you! Did you walk this route by any chance? What did you do if you don’t mind sharing pls. I have 32 days between flights and would love to walk the Camino del Norte including the detour to San Toribio.
