The so-called Camino de Santiago del Norte runs along the Cantabrian coast. Its starting point is located in the Guipuzcoan city of Irún, from where 32 stages pass to the town of Arzúa, where the Camino del Norte joins to the French Way. A wonderful route in which the sea and the mountain combine throughout the Camino.

Although the stage between Gijón and Avilés consists of an affordable distance and without large slopes beyond the Monte Areo, it will be necessary to regain energy because the stage between Avilés and Solo de Luiña is much more demanding.

Composed by 38km of continuous ups and downs, this stage is one of those considered as ‘breaking legs’. Therefore, nothing better than having a quality accommodation in which to recover energy before starting a new journey of Camino. You need OCA Hotels!!
