Camino del Norte

Pilgrimage along the northern coast of Spain.

2022:   June 20-27       8 days    €2700 


Surround yourself in beauty on this breathtaking Camino de Santiago route that follows the sea.  Spanish Steps is excited to be offering this route once again.  For over 1000 years, pilgrims coming from the north of Europe didn’t always make the journey to Santiago by foot, many came by boat to the fishing villages and small cities that were springing up along the Cantabrian coast.  On this 8-day pilgrimage, we’ll be covering nearly 120- kilometers on foot, meandering along country roads, farming tracks, and beautiful coastal footpaths.  We’ll visit medieval villages, prehistoric caves (replica) and coastal towns where the contrasts are breathtaking.Meet us in Bilbao, and head west to the coastal town of Laredo and onward to the medieval town of Santillana del Mar a magical place where time has stood still.  We’ll follow the famed scallop shell and yellow arrow passing through delightful seaside towns such as Comillas, San Vicente de la Barquera, Llanes, and Ribadasella, until we reach the town of Ribadeo in Galicia where we head away from the ocean and travel inland to the Roman city of Lugo, a lively hub of history, academia and gastronomy. We end our Norte pilgrimage here in Lugo but you will be able to continue with us by joining our Camino Way 100 starting the following day.   Ask us about our discount for signing up for both trips.
