    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. :)

    Deciding when to go

    Hi, everyone. This is my first post. I recently decided to do my first Camino in 2017 and am looking for suggestions on when to go.

    Camino Frances in April 2017

    Hi, I am planning to walk in April 2017. From what I gather the journey from SJPDP takes 35 days to Santiago de Compostela. I need to book my flight for when I am done and hope that 35 days will be enough? I'm 32 years old and quite fit so I think I should be able to finish in time. Will...

    Rain in September along Camino portugues

    Can anyone tell me how much rain there might be in September between Lisbon and Santiago? I have good quality waterproof pants which are much heavier than a cheaper pair that I have which is not very comfortable. If it rains regularly, I am thinking it would be better to have the comfortable...

    Weather in October/November

    I'm thinking of doing the whole Camino Frances from SJPP to Santiago, starting mid October (maybe between 12/10 and 17/10) to mid-November, and maybe on to Finisterre if the weather and my feet allow. However, I'm concerned about the weather, particularly in Galicia. I have walked both the...

    min/max temperatures, rainfall/snow by month over the camino frances

    I am looking at my first Camino Frances and could start mid October this year or early spring (start late mid-April) next year. I was planning to start in St. Jean. I recall seeing a link to a historical weather site for Spain but can't find the link now. Any good sources?

    So I leave SJPdP on July 4 and have been "training' for a while now. I regularly walk with a 15 lb pack and do 2-day consecutive 18 km walks easily. I have thrown in hills on shorter walk days (but hills in Ottawa are nothing compared to the Pyrannees). Mid week I do shorter walks 5-7 km. This...

    If anyone lives along this route or is walking this route I'd love to have a weather thread with updates to have a better idea of what to bring. I want to travel with as little as possible! I'd like to extend this thread to continue updates for those who might want the info, too.

    Summer nights on CF and sleeping bags

    Yes. I'm starting another thread on this subject. I apologize ;) I do not know yet when I will be able to leave and do the Camino Francés, but I would like to do it in July/August. I have a sleeping bag (7C/45F) and a liner, but using only a liner irks me a little bit, since it is very thin and...

    Accommodations on the Invierno - latter half of February?

    I have been taken with favorable posts on the Invierno from @peregrina2000 , @KinkyOne, @Rebekah Scott and others. Circumstances may (operative word, "may") provide me both cash and time for a quick jaunt that way in a few weeks. I don't care about weather, food or anything else. Just one...
