"Northern Way. Extremely well organised and easy to follow. Stunning views and challenging tracks. Would strongly recommend."
Janelle, Australia - May 2016
"Amazing experience - Camino from San Sebastian to Bilbao. Booking through CaminoWays.com was easy. The walk wasn't guided but the maps and information received was enough for us to navigate our own way with no problems. The bags were picked up and delivered with no problems. Most of the hotel accommodation was great. The walk was challenging in parts but was also a fulfilling experience. The scenery was amazing and varied, and the food was SO good. I would definitely recommend this holiday to others."

Great holiday had by all of us. The walking, the food, the wine, the people were all a wonderful experience.
This first 127km section of the Northern Way or Camino del Norte begins in the chic and elegant coastal city of San Sebastián, a gastronomic mecca, home to several Michelin-starred restaurants. From San Sebastián (or Donosti in Basque), the Northern Way travels West along the green hills of the Basque coastline. The trail passes the historic town of Gernika, made famous by Picasso’s master piece and finishes in Bilbao, where the impressive Guggenheim Museum is a must-see. 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 Northern Way in the Basque Country is classed as moderate to challenging, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
