Cycling The Camino del Norte From Navia to Santiago
This trip, Cycling the Camino del Norte from Navia to Santiago, covers the second half of the Camino del Norte, the Northern Way of the Camino de Santiago.
You will be starting your Camino in the very scenic coastal city of Navia, in Cantabria, and you will follow the northern coast into Galicia and ending at Santiago de Compostela.
On your way, you will be staying in stunning seaside villages and towns, passing sandy beaches and coves; and cycling across the lush countryside.
As you cross the bridge over the River Eo you will arrive in Ribadeo, the first town in Galicia and home to one of Spain’s most famous beaches: the Cathedrals Beach.
From Ribadeo, the Camino del Norte then heads inland, into rural Galicia. You will cycle to the sleepy town of Mondoñedo, the old capital of the Kingdom of Galicia, where you can admire its grand buildings and cathedral.
You will continue your Cycling the Camino del Norte through forests, peaceful hamlets, and country roads.
As you will have completed 200km which is the requirement for ‘bicigrinos’, don’t forget to claim your Compostela certificate when you arrive in Santiago de Compostela!
We recommend cycling the Camino only if you have some cycling experience and if you have essential bike maintenance knowledge.
