The Northern trail starts in the town of Irun, which in Basque means “fortified town” and is the old Roman name of Oiasso. The Way is 875 kilometers from Santiago de Compostela. This path is a true spiritual adventure, running through the beauty that is the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. The scenery is one of marvels, age-old cliffs withstanding the elements and the harsh mistress that is the sea, surrounded by beaches with golden sands. What follows as we delve deeper into the country, are evergreen forests and the small streams that nourish them.
This path isn’t as frequent as the others may be, with 13,000 visitors per year, but it is truly a magical experience that lets you take in the landscape and the diversity that is nature!
