    LIVE from the Camino Snow. Primitivo Yay or Nay?

    Heya peregrino peeps. I've been live on the Camino for longer than four months and this is my first "live" post, derp. Anyway. We're here in Ribadeseya and snow is closing in on us. It's on the hilltops very close to the Camino, the Picos de Europa are completely snowed under (so pretty), and...

    Navarra, ir...es volver!

    Feb 3, 2018. To go is to return. Even my wife who is notorious about her dislike for cold weather remembers this as one of her favorite days. It didn't hurt to be invited to a San Blas celebration in Los Arcos later that evening!

    Almost to Monjardín in early February, Bacalao and Patatas await in Los Arcos! San Blas!

    Feb 3, 2019. Idyllic day for walking, in my humble polar bear opinion. My wife not so much. Notice the fashionable plastic bag gloves? She really really didn't want her hands to get cold or wet...she has my gloves underneath those bags which are over her gloves.

    Buen Camino Everyone! The Camino is calling me back (my first was September 2017), but I only have vacation December 7th through the New Year. Does anyone walk in December? Is everything really closed like my guidebook warns? Are the mountain areas closed due to snow? Basically asking if...

    Weather at Roncesvalles

    After about 35 cm of snow, there will be winds up to 60 mph and temperatures down to -10 C!! It likely will be worse at higher elevations... It is not a good day to be leaving SJPdP. :)

    Is there still snow in the Pyrenees in the begining of May?

    I was planning on a summer Camino, but it might be a spring-summer one instead. Is there still snow (usually) in the begining of May on the Napoleon route in the Pyrenees?

    Starting from Leon in mid-March -- weather?

    Hello! We have two weeks and are planning to start from Leon March 13 and finish at Santiago on the 27th. Has anyone walked this last section during March? It involves some higher elevations so we are wondering if we will encounter snow. Any tips or suggestions about whether this is a good...

    Starting my Camino in middle to late April. I know no one can forecast the weather but is there usually snow in the Pyrenees. Is it passable? Thank you in advance for any information that would help.
