How do I switch to the Norte, Finisterre or Frances Route in the Virtual Camino App

How to change routes in the app.

The Camino de Santiago is a network of pilgrimage walking tracks across Spain that eventually all end up in Santiago de Compostela. The most common and popular route is the Camino Frances that starts at the foot of the Pyrenees (St Jean Pied de Port) in France.

With the original route being the Camino Frances, the Camino for Good Virtual Camino app has added two additional routes - Camino del Norte (Northern route) and the Finisterre-Muxia (end of the earth) route.

Each route is a different distance and price. If you have paid for the app through subscription you can progress on the other routes without additional payments.

Below demonstrates the process of changing routes using the App on an iPhone. Other platforms may be very slightly different.
