    Hola, perdon, No comprende Espanol.
    I have cycled the Camino De Santiago 4 times and want to find out some information about cycling across the Picos de Europas to Santiago!
    I would probably have to fly to Bilbao or Santander and cycle from there.

    I will have my 13 year old son with me.

    Is it possible? How long would it take us?

    We did the Camino from Pamplona in 10 days last year.

    I would appreciate your help.

    Gracias

    Turlough

    Ups, I think that you should fly to Santander better, Bilbao is ok too but it will take more time and is a little far from Picos de Europa, so I think the best choice is flying to Santander and you will be close to the Picos de Europa.

    Anyway I do not know any route through the Picos de Europa to Santiago, try to find something in google, if I find something I will post it here or expect some posts about this issue by some members from that area... I hope they can give you enough information but I guess they are not very fluent in English, hahaha...

    Good luck!.

    Muchos gracias!
    I have been looking at a route from La Hermida - PD Valdeon - Pueb Lillo - Cuerigo - Mieres - S Emiliano - Pole Somme ???? maybe some route to Lugo...

    I understand it is not 'a camino' route but it looks like a very beautiful way to go.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I agree with antonio_ngn. The airport of Santander is closer to Picos de Europa than the airport of Bilbao.

    Yes, it is not the 'regular' way to Santiago but I think also that Picos is one of the more beautiful areas in the north. Maybe a bit difficult due the high heigths. Check the profiles and take them into account for your son.

    Probably you already know it, but there is a "camino del norte" (use these words to look for further information in google) that goes all along the coast, not too far from Picos.

    Take a glance at these pages:
    http://www.verdenorte.com/general/caminosant_etapas.php
    http://www.santiago-today.com/board/viewforum.php?f=21

    The last one is a link to a english forum about the way of St James.
    Don't hesitate to ask the people of this forum if you have some particular question.

    Have good luck!
    :)

    Sorry for my rought english ...

    Can you tell me are the trails way marked or do I need GPS to cross the mountains?
