Caminos de Santiago in Spain: the Norte and Primitivo Routes

7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM

Registration closed

  • Group size: 60
  • 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.
