    Best time to Walk

    May vs September

    My wife and I are in our mid 60's and plan to our first pilgrimage in 2016. We hope to minimize encounters with full hostels and the afternoon heat by starting at St. Jean either on May 1st or September 1st. We think our trek might take about 40 days. We also hope that with these dates we...

    Camino Frances in July

    Best time of the year to go?

    Amigos, I selfishly want the best weather and the least crowded paths and albergues for my trek. I've been told that September is ideal but that won't work for me next year. Suggestions for spring 2011 would be greatly appreciated. Gracias , Dan aka Tio
