Caminos de Santiago in Spain: the Norte and Primitivo Routes

7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM

Registration closed

  • Group size: 50
  • Instructor: Susan and Ralph Alcorn

While the most popular route of the Camino de Santiago is the Frances, hikers are increasingly looking for a less crowded or a new route. The Caminos Norte and Primitivo are great choices. Susan and Ralph Alcorn, who hiked both in 2015-16, strongly recommend the entire 500 miles of Norte, and/or the 200 of the Primitivo. In their digital slide show, the Alcorns will give an overview of the Caminos Norte and Primitivo--the routes, elevations, accommodations. Who is hiking? How difficult is it? How to train? How to pack? What resources are available--apps or maps? Throughout, you'll enjoy images of the journey and get inspired to plan that trip of your own that you have been dreaming of. Please note that this presentation will take place in the Corte Madera Town Center Community Room. The Community Room is located at the south end of Corte Madera Town Center in the office building at 770 Tamalpais Drive, Suite 201. This falls within the same shopping center as REI Corte Madera, but the room is not located within the store, rather a few storefronts to the South from REI Corte Madera. Take the elevator to the second floor, and room 201 will be directly to your right.
