TOTALS

Total distance: 767.49 km.

Total calories: 30.009 calories (teniendo en cuenta que no se llevasen los 9 kg de peso adicional de las alforjas y que el viento fuese neutro, así como la calzada no fuese barro ni piedra, por lo que esta cantidad estimada es muy inferior a la real).

Total gained height: 16.796 m.

Drop:  34.141 m.

Weight: 3 Kg aprox in 9 days.

Stamps of every hostel and some restaurants in our trip (required for the ‘Compostelana’):
