Camino del Norte Day 1: Irún to San Sebastian, 26 km


Tiring but beautiful first day. Lots of sea views and charming seaside towns. We stayed in the San Sebastian albergue, which is a schoolhouse which has bunks in summer. Beautiful beach town. We are exploring the sites before continuing to Orio or Zarautz. We are surprised at how many other pilgrims are on the trail. The 60 beds at San Sebastian were all full by the end of the evening. we do have camping supplies but hope to still get a bed tonight!

    Are there places to camp on the Camino Norte? I have been told camping is illegal in Spain, so I’m wondering if I should even bring equipment?
