The following updates highlight any changes to the Camino del Norte in 2017 to The Northern Caminos. Please note that we have not included minor price changes here (for example, an albergue price increasing by a euro), though inflation has struck many of the accommodations along the way. Page numbers corresponding to the 2015 edition are included in parentheses. 2015 and 2016 updates can be found in previous posts; the 2016 updates following our re-walk are particularly significant.
