    Weather conditions now in June ??

    I second @classicalfan ! I’m walking since May 15 and only walked in the rain one day (there were other 2 really rainy days, but I used that as an excuse to take rest days!) It’s definitely not cold while walking, just chilly in the evening/night.

    Start in Irun or San Sebastian - WWYD?

    I stayed in a new, clean and friendly hostel called Koba in SS less than a month ago, it was about 25euro with breakfast included, I would recommend it. Pasaia is cute! I started in Irun but it was very cloudy that day so I have no idea what the views are like:confused::confused:

    Norte coastal reroute at Pasaia

    Hi! Just did this bit today and it was just where the red line shows. It did go through some construction, but just for a few meters. It was all good!

    Mosquitos, ticks, snakes, etc.

    have you ever done the Camino del Norte? Any animals there? This is one of my biggest fears (phobia actually) while walking alone...

    Norte-Crowded in May 2018

    That was also my first plan, but I’m a newbie and don’t think it’d be a good idea for me to start in the rain. I’m waiting a couple of days, hoping for some dry days ahead! All the best to your start!

    Norte-Crowded in May 2018

    I hope it’s just because of the long weekend, because in many places (not sure if also in Spain) May 10th is a holiday - Ascension day.
