November, time to start planning your Camino
November has arrived and it might be considered the least favourite month of the year but we have the best remedy to beat the November blues: it’s time to start planning your next Camino adventure!
Here are four wonderful Camino adventures to get you inspired and lift your spirits:
On the Coastal Camino from Portugal
Picture yourself walking on a beach by the Atlantic Ocean. Add blue skies, light sea breeze and a pretty village where there is a plate of fresh seafood waiting for you after the day’s walk. This could be your day on the Portuguese Coastal Camino.
A magnificent trail from Porto to Santiago de Compostela, the Portuguese Coastal Camino route takes you from town to town along the North coast of Portugal and the Rias Baixas in Galicia.
How long will it take? Two weeks to walk or one-week cycling, more details: Portuguese Coastal Camino.
Basque beauty on the Camino del Norte
Peaceful lush valleys and lively chic cities, the Camino del Norte in the Basque Country has the best of both worlds. Sample the famous Basque pintxos in San Sebastian before you set off on this journey full of beauty, scenic trails and tasty food.

To the end of the world: magic Finisterre
