The Camino del Norte, also called “Camino de la Costa”, runs along the Spanish Atlantic coast as far as Santiago de Compostela. Between ocean and mountain, you'll discover coastal landscapes with a succession of cliffs, coves and beaches but also cities and villages with multiple historical influences.

Over the course of some 830 km, you'll enjoy this opportunity to cross the Basque country with its steep slopes, as well as the Asturian mountains.

Unlike on the more widely used Camino francés, on this route you're more likely to come across surfers and beach lovers than pilgrims.
