    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    Hi @barryrob! I have been looking to see which Albergues are open using the Gronze website and it looks like the Frances between Pamplona and Logrona is the most likely possible option. I have contacted them directly yet as I'd like to wait and see how the Covid situation is closer to the date...

    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    Lovely idea! I'll put it on the list for future years as I want to keep travel to a minimum this year. Thank you!!

    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    I'll have a look at those options, thank you! And yes, I agree about accommodations. I will be sure to contact places in advance and make reservations where possible. Likely a mix of Albergues and pensiones/hotels where needed. Thanks very much for the ideas!

    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    Thanks everyone for all the ideas! Now I want to do them all :D The southern Caminos might be a good option. I actually lived in Granada when I first moved to Spain so am familiar with the south and it would be nice to go back one day for some walking. So many options! I might have a few...

    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    Thanks very much! Based on all the comments here I am leaning towards Pamplona to Santo Domingo del Calzada and then maybe a days walk north on the Vasco del Interior to Haro (has been on my list of places to go for ages). Of course, all weather dependent and yes, I'll look up bus options...

    A short (7-10 day) Camino over Christmas - which route/section?

    Hi! I'm not sure where to post this but would really appreciate any ideas from experienced Camino walkers. I am a Canadian living in Spain and, due to Covid, will probably not be flying home for Christmas this year but staying in Spain instead. I've already walked the Norte, Primitivo...

    Vasco del Interior - In April/Semana Santa?

    Thank you!! I loved going through your post and will make note of those Albergues as well. Looks like you had a wonderful time :)

    Vasco del Interior - In April/Semana Santa?

    Hello! I've done a few Caminos (Norte, Primitivo & San Salvador) and am feeling the need to do another soon :) I live in Bilbao so am thinking the Vasco del Interior would be a great option - Irun to Haro, then take the train back to Bilbao. My only holiday time in 2020 is during Semana...

    Favourite albergues on the Salvador?

    Bendueños! Not only my favourite place to stay on any of the caminos I've done thus far, but also one my most memorable stays out of all my travels. Cannott recommend it enough :)

    Back from the Salvador - Wow! And bird warning :)

    The bird strikes again!! :D For me, the trail really got good just after Buiza. Then it was away from roads for a while and into the mountains. Just don't forget about food over these next sections! If I recall correctly, there aren't places to stock up in Buiza or Poladura (nor any...

    Back from the Salvador - Wow! And bird warning :)

    I am sorry if I have discouraged you in anyway from doing the Salvador alone! It is a great route and I loved walking it solo. I met just 6 other pilgrims but everyone was looking out for each other and I felt very safe.

    Back from the Salvador - Wow! And bird warning :)

    The weather was part of the adventure for me! We had heavy wind and rain on the walk from Poladura to Benduenos. The wind was really strong and I was very thankful for my rain gear. That night, there was a great thunder/lightening storm when I was in the Albergue in Benduenos. I stood at the...

    Booking private accommodation

    Hello! I did the Northern route last year and found phoning directly to a private albergue/pension the day before worked very well. As others have written, I also used booking.com from time to time. One hospitalero did tell me that booking.com rates are slightly higher than when you book...

    Back from the Salvador - Wow! And bird warning :)

    Sounds like a perfect mistake! People were incredibly friendly on this route. One couple in Buiza tried to set me up with their son! They weren't happy that I was walking alone and were quite insistent :D
