Weather permitting, I'm walking to Roncesvalles the next morning where I booked a hotel as my conversations with the Refugio in Roncesvalles left me confused about if they were even open. I think only the older, smaller part is open. Decided since I have to go...

    A question for the winter walkers.. I'm taking the plunge, and am planning to walk from Logrono for just under 3 weeks, starting 30th October.

    Do I need to bring a sleeping-bag in september?

    Hello forum-members, I am planning to walk on CN from August 30, and on for two weeks. As far as can get in that time, without any hurry (this walk is a test of my back's capability, after just having recovered from a herniated disc). My question is; do I need to bring a solid sleeping-bag, or...

    Hi Everyone, I'm planning to do my first camino this November! From about November 9- Dec 9. I've heard doing the Camino at this time can still be good, despite getting cold and wet at times, but my question is specifically about the Pyrenees. Is it possible to cross this late in the year? How...
