Spanish Trails - There's More Than One Way to Walk a Camino

Dear Henry,

Of all the through hikes I wish I could do, the Camino de Santiago has been the highlighted one.

The Camino de Santiago (the way of St. James) is a route about 500 miles through the mountains of  Northern Spain (there is a small part in France) to the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, which is thought to be the final resting place for St. James.

The trip takes at least a month.

Fortunately, Spain has another trek called the Camino dos Faros (the lighthouse way).  This trek walks along Spain's "Costa da Morte" and takes about eight days.  The reports that I have read call the hike absolutely breathtaking.

It is also much less crowded than Santiago.

Where do you want to go?
