El Camino de Santiago del Norte, conocido popularmente como "Camino del Norte", es la ruta de peregrinación que comienzan en Irún y termina en la Catedral de Santiago de Compostela. Esta ruta lleva a los peregrinos a lo largo de la maravillosa costa norte de la 'España Verde' desde el País Vasco, a través de Cantabria, Asturias hasta Santiago de Compostela, capital del Camino por excelencia. Durante toda la caminata podrás disfrutar de un increíble paisaje con acantilados espectaculares, un precioso mar azul, playas de arena, ciudades y pueblos históricos, pastizales y bosques. Los peregrinos también tienen la opción de tomar una ruta alternativa desde la ciudad de Oviedo, donde el Camino del Norte se conecta con el Camino Primitivo y luego continúa hacia Santiago de Compostela. La leyenda cuenta que los restos del Apóstol Santiago están enterrados allí. Cada primavera y verano, muchas personas siguen sus rutas como una forma de camino espiritual o retiro para su crecimiento espiritual. También es popular entre los entusiastas del senderismo y el ciclismo y los grupos de turistas organizados.

The trail is beautiful and peaceful. Not many pilgrims in September but I never felt alone. Safe. If you make it thru the first day from Hunderrabia the rest is easier. This was my first Camino. Usually people do this trail after they have done at least one Camino. It can be done. I was 58 and not an avid hiker and completed it in 37 days
