It starts in the town of Irun, near the French border and follows the Atlantic coast through the Basque country, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. Compared to the more popular Camino Frances , the Camino del Norte is more scenic and the pilgrim has a more solitary experience here. In terms of facilities, there are less albergues here, especially in the first half of the journey but things improve once one reaches Asturias and especially Galicia. The northern coast of Spain is greener due to higher precipitations in the area so a pilgrim must be prepared for more rain on this route. But the rain will be certainly compensated by the lush green hills and mountains, especially the Picos de Europa in Asturias. Many stretches of the camino are next to the sea and you will have the occasion to dip into the sea in the summer months in some unspoilt beaches.

The following traditional Camino de Santiago guidebooks offer route direction and allow you to reconnect with these historic and spiritual routes. Packed with information, guidebooks can cover one or the entire network of routes and they are the best source of information. The books have been created by dedicated individuals who have hiked and walked the routes. Maybe this is why I find each guidebook to offer something unique, or at least see each route with a new perspective. There are a few established routes, covered by most guidebooks. Other less-traveled routes are also covered by some publishers. The Camino Frances with its km of history and tradition is the most popular route.
