    Good Camino for walking over Christmas?

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking about walking the Camino from 23rd December to 2nd January, and would like advice on a good track which will have albergues open, not be too isolated (if shops etc shut around Christmas/New Year), and not too cold, wet or snowy! I love walking in winter, and have done...

    Christmas on the camino

    Hi everyone, I am a third year medical student in the US. The summer before I started med school I did the Camino del Norte--one of the best decisions of my life! Now fast forward to third year. I took my boards in June, started third year a week later and went through a torturous break-up...

    New Years Eve on the Camino

    Here I am again, dreaming of all the Caminos I would love to walk if I had unlimited spare time in my life, such as the Mozarabe which hooks up with the VDLP, but realistically it would appear that the next Camino for me will be the Portuguese again over the christmas break. Last time I was...

    Over Christmas/New year on Camino Frances

    I'm not long back from my first assault on the Camino Frances which took me from SJPdP as far as Burgos. It was such a great experience, much more than I dared expect and obviously I have to finish it! Now I'm toying with the idea to walk just after Christmas and into the New Year starting in...

    Alan´s Winter Vdlp -- 2012

    Heading steadily northwards on the VdlP, now having a rest day in Merida, a week and a day out from Seville. Only one morning of drizzle, between Almaden and El Real de la Jara, so can't complain, especially as England seems to be largely under water judging from a brief item on the TVE...

    Christmas Camino

    I know that this topic has been addressed before but I am wondering if there is any new information on accommodations open along the Camino Frances this Dec-Jan. My wife, Robin, and I will be departing St. Jean for Santiago on or about Dec 15th. Most of what I have read before warns of...
