Just a couple of quick questions:

1. the site http://www.mundicamino.com is very good with detailed info ....,
but it never says(not I have seen this info @ any other site) which refugios are available for everyone and which are just for walking peregrinos ...

2. if I decide to walk the camino which is the best point to take the carne de peregrino in the Camino de Norte (we're landing in Bilbao) ???

3.If we want to sleep the walking peregrino`s refugios how the thing with the seals work ???

thx
a lot

Pilgrim Refuges

The John Breirley guide gives a good description of the different types of labergues - Municipal, Church, sponsored, private etc.
Generally, the municipal, church or sponsored refuges are meant to be for walking, cycling or pilgrims on horseback. Private albergues or Youth Hostels are open to anyone.
The pilgrim passport (credential) is a passport to getting beds in the pilgrim's refuges. It is stamped at each albergue but you can also get it stamped at hotels, cafe bars, museums, churches etc.
If you intend using transport between towns, rather book into an inn or pension that day and leave the beds to the walking pilgrims.
You can order a pilgrim passport before you leave for Spain from Mundicamino. You can either contact them directly or I could send you the application form. It is in Spanish but easy to understand.
They charge 3 Euro for local postage, 4 Euro for the rest of Europe and 10 Europe for the rest of the world.
You can either put the money into an envelope concealed in dark paper so that it can't be identified, or they will open an account for you to use electronic payment.

Why not bring this thread back to life after ten years...

I cannot load the Mundicamino website - anyone else having that problem or is it just me?

I was going to plan a 2017 Camino, but... nope

Looks like there is a problem with their front-page. This link works on my browser (Google Chrome) http://www.mundicamino.com/los-caminos/
Yeah, right after Peter answered me I tried to "skip" the front page and follow some old link to the specific page (Camino) that I'm interested in, and it worked. It still throws me out from time to time though. Bad pilgrim = bad computer...
