    Camino del Norte, tent or no tent??

    Hello all, I'm starting my camino from Bilbao on 6th June 2019. I still can't decide to take my tent with me or not. In my reasoning, pros of taking the tent: saving some money, enjoying quiet nights (I hear a person or two might snore in albergues), sleeping in nature. Cons: the extra weight of...

    Should I bring a tent?

    Dear Camino fans, I'm planning to do my first camino in June of this year (2018). I was wondering the following: Is the CF really crowded at this time? If so, should I just bring a tent so I don't have to worry about not being able to stay an an albergue? Many thanks to the creators...

    Camping Shops in Lisbon (Lisboa)

    Does anyone have any information for reasonably priced Camping/Outdoor Gear Shops in Lisbon? I'm flying into Lisbon in May from Liverpool and I travel light on the plane to avoid excess baggage charges. So I don't travel with things like tent pegs, or walking poles. These are things though...

    Sleeping in a tent

    Hello, I want to go the route St. Jean Pied de Port - Santiago Compostela. I want to sleep in a tent. Are there any restrictions in this sense? Who can tell me where you are camping. How much does it cost? The period of the year recommended for this route.

    I've read where there are no convenient campgrounds along the Camino, but has anyone taken an ultra-light tent and free camped? Is that allowed in Spain? If so, what has your experience been? Thank you, heading out in late May, 2016!

    Tent vs. hammoc vs Albergues

    I really like the communal aspect of the Albergues, but I have some slight concerns. 1) I snore- LOUDLY!! I would pack earplugs just to give them to others 2) I am 6'8" and 320+ lbs. I don't know how comfortable I will be, and nobody wants to be underneath ME if I have a top bunk. I don't...

    Possibility to tent on the trail?

    Is it possible at all to tent along the Camino? I love the freedom I get using my tent here in Sweden but If I have to find and check in to camp sites I guess I could just go for the pilgrim lodging all the time. Was thinking of bringing the tent and use it if I want to stop between villages.

    A tent... your opinions please

    I am thinking of bringing a tent, weight 2.7kg. Is it feasible to sleep in a tent on the camino instead of staying in albergues?
