Camino de Santiago in Winter

winterIn summer there are a lot of pilgrims walking. To get away from the crowds, some choose to walk in winter time.

This can perfectly be done, but you need to be prepared for closed albergues and snow in higher elevations.

Our pilgrims over in the Camino de Santiago forum discusses more on this here.

  1. I Will start in sarria on Christmas day and hopefully spend new year in the cathedral in Santiago.. Any one else on the Way that time?

  2. I walked from Espallion to Cahors in France one winter. Lovely, although occasional ice. No one on trail the complete time. Needed to carry a days worth of food all the time. Local hotels would call ahead for me for the next day. Just some winter markets are open only a day or two (such as in Conques).
