The Camino del Norte by bike from Irún is one of the oldest routes that pilgrims have traveled and travel today. In its beginnings, when the remains of the Apostle Santiago were discovered, around the year 830, in Santiago de Compostela, there was a great flow of pilgrims from all over Europe. Many of them went by boat to ports in the Cantabrian Sea to continue, from there, their pilgrimage on foot. The route runs along the entire Cantabrian coast, very close to it and even in some areas, by the sea. In the Galician town of Ribadeo, it heads inland to join, in the town of Arzúa, with the French Way in a single Way to Santiago de Compostela. It begins in Spain, in the city of Irún and travels in a journey of about 817 km, through the Communities of the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Galicia. Tour of great scenic, cultural, architectural, gastronomic and historical beauty, in which the breeze from the North will accompany us on our way. Throughout such a long route, the pilgrim will travel through mid-mountain areas, with constant ups and downs, as in the Basque section, with fertile and green valleys as in the Asturian and Cantabrian sections, and we will find numerous fishing ports with eminent marine flavor. The main towns, to name a few, that we will find in this Jacobean itinerary are: San Sebastián - Bilbao - Santander - Gijón.
