The first section of the Camino del Norte begins in chic and elegant San Sebastián, a gastronomic mecca, home to several Michelin-starred restaurants. From San Sebastián (or Donosti in Basque), the Northern Camino travels West along the green coastline and countryside of the Basque Country for 127kms.
The trail takes pilgrims to the historic town of Gernika, made famous by Picasso’s masterpiece of the same name and finishes in Bilbao, where the impressive Guggenheim Museum is a must-see. This route can be challenging for those with little walking experience.
The Basque Country is renowned for its cuisine, its ‘pintxos’ and some of the country’s best chefs so this Camino walk will be an unforgettable gastronomic experience. This section of the Camino del Norte in the Basque Country is classed as moderate to challenging, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
