THE SAINT JAMES WAY - Camino de Santiago de Compostela 2018 / Camino del Norte

From Hendaye to Santiago de Compostela

With the land on one side and the sea on the other, the Camino del Norte takes you all the way to Santiago de Compostela. Your constant companion on this is the Atlantic Ocean. You set off among fishing villages and small sandy beaches, but you also see beautiful towns such as Hendaye, San Sebastian, Bilbao, Oviedo. You first explore the lovely Cantabrian coastline before going into the heart of Asturias. Oviedo marks the beginning of the Camino Primitivo which leads you to the much-admired Santiago de Compostela. The stages of this long-distance walk take you through the little-known region of Asturias and the surprising one of Galicia. And the entry into Santiago de Compostela itself, the final destination of this pilgrimage, will be a crowning moment which stays in your memory for ever.
