    Thanks for the reply and the welcome. Unfortunately it's too early to get times and tickets yet. I understand you have to change buses at Oviedo, do you know if this is reasonably straight forward ?
    (Asturis to Oviedo, then Oviedo to Leon)

    Sorry, I don’t really understand your question as Asturias is a region https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asturias and Oviedo is it’s capitol



    Unless that is you are flying into Asturias Airport (Details of airport busses to Oviedo can be found at http://www.aena.es/en/asturias-airport/public-transport.html) and that being the case, then yes, you do have to change busses at Oviedo and this won’t cause you a problem, just leave a little time in-between the bus times when booking. I changed buses myself in Asturias when I walked The Camino Primitivo and had no problems



    Best Regards

    Hi, thanks for the link, yes I'm flying into Asturias, I land at 8pm, however, the bus leaves the airport with Alsa at 8.30 or 11.30 pm, so I was looking for some alternative options.
    Thanks Rob

    If it were me then I would overnight in Oviedo and travel to Leon the next day – It’s a very small airport so as long as your flight is on time then there is a good chance you will make the 20.30 bus to Oviedo and maybe book a hotel near the bus station would be about the best plan I can think of



    Good Luck and Best Regards
