More than a regular camino walk
Camino Lebaniego is perfect for anyone who wants to walk the Camino, but at the same time wants to experience something more. During our trip you will walk along this beautiful pilgrim path and experience the mountains of Picos de Europa. Along the way you can do many fun activities that can not be found on other Camino routes. Enjoy picturesque towns such as Lebeña, Potes, Mogrovejo, etc. And stay several nights in lively cities such as Bilbao / Santander, where you can visit the Guggenheim Museum and enjoy beautiful sandy beaches.
An undiscovered and hidden camino
While the Camino Frances (the French route) for men has become increasingly popular, especially during the summer months, the Camino Lebaniego remains largely unexplored. Here, you can walk a whole day without encountering a single pilgrim! The only sounds heard are birdsong and occasionally a "Muuu" from the cows.
Flexible and varied route with a short travel period
Many people do not have time for a longer vacation, and the Camino Lebaniego is perfect for those who have 1 week available. The Camino Lebaniego takes 6 hiking days, and then you can enjoy two more days of wonderful experiences in Picos de Europa. Additionally, it's easy to add a few extra nights in Potes, Bilbao, or Santander. Perfect for anyone who only has a week available for his or her Camino.
