"I did the Camino del Norte (the northern way) from Bilbao to Santiago de Compostela starting on 4 June & finishing on 5 July 19 (including 2 rest / sightseeing days). My walk distance was approximately 740 Klm & a thoroughly fantastic experience. The northern way has magnificent coastal scenery as well as beautiful medieval towns along the route. Being a 64 year old male (walking solo), I chose not to stay at the hostels, but instead arranged my accommodation through Caminoways’s. Caminoways was terrific in assisting me to finalise my itinerary. The quality of accommodation they provided was excellent along my entire route & exceeded my expectations. I also appreciated that wherever practical, the accommodation was located in the centre of town, close to key attractions. Overall I would recommend the Camino as a should do experience & Caminoways as great company to assist you to make it happen."

"This is my second Camino walk using Caminoway. This year it was part of the Norte route and, as before Caminoways provide everything you could want, from the detailed map to luggage labels, but most of all, the really wonderful hotels they booked for us on the way and for our final stop in Finisterre. Thank you"

"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."

The Camino del Norte, or Northern Way, is a fantastic Camino route along the Northern coast of ‘Green Spain’ from San Sebastián in the Basque Country, to Cantabria, Asturias and finally Ribadeo in Galicia. From Ribadeo, the Northern Camino heads inland, taking pilgrims across forests and farmland of rural Galicia on its way to Santiago de Compostela.

Pilgrims also have the option to take an alternative route from the city of Oviedo, where the Camino del Norte connects with the Camino Primitivo and then continues on to Santiago de Compostela.

This Camino starts in the chic seaside city of San Sebastián (Donostia in Basque), a real paradise for foodies: it is the city with the second highest number of Michelin stars in the world. Following the coastline for most of the way, you will discover charming fishing villages, swim in beautiful sandy beaches and taste delicious fresh seafood.

Feel inspired at the impressive Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao; stroll by the elegant royal palace by the sea in Santander; sample Asturias’s famous cider and step back in time in Mondoñedo, a former capital of the Kingdom of Galicia. If you have time, we recommend you take a trip to see Ribadeo’s impressive Cathedrals Beach. With 5 star reviews you will be treated to a stunning walk across Northern Spain.
