Starting at the France-Spain border, El “Camino del Norte” (Northern Camino) or “Camino de la Costa” (Coastal Camino) runs along Iberia’s beautiful northern coast as far as the Asturias-Galicia border before heading inland to Santiago.
We specialize in the coastal sections of the route in Asturias, as we consider these the true highlight of this Way. We’ve selected the best segments of marked Camino trails as well as lesser-known paths – near but not on the Camino itself – that always seek to keep as close to the ocean as possible. It’s glorious hiking terrain, on some of the finest coastal paths in Europe, featuring grassy meadows, sandy beaches, rocky coves, gorse and heather clad clifftop paths, quaint villages and superb views of sea and mountains with plenty of cultural-historic interest along the way. Of course, this region is also known for great cuisine, whether from the sea or the land.
