Are you thinking about walking the Northern Way, or Camino del Norte, but you do not have enough time to walk more tan 800 km? Do not worry, since you do not have to walk the full Northern Way to get your certificate once in Santiago de Compostela. You just need to walk its last 100 km, that is enough.

Please do not hesitate to request your custom-made itinerary.
