This cycling trip 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 coastal city of Gijón, in Asturias, and follow the northern coast into Galicia. On your way, you will be staying in stunning seaside villages and towns, passing sandy beaches and coves; and cycling across 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, an old capital of the Kingdom of Galicia, where you can admire its grand buildings and cathedral. You will continue along forests, peaceful hamlets and country roads. 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. Cycling the Camino de Santiago – How it Works.
