    Lana/Sanabres or Levante/Invierno in winter

    The short mid summer camino I was hoping for this year is not going to happen so I have turned my mind to a different possibility. It would be solo and so time is less of a constraint than when we were trying to squeeze something into the three weeks hubby could get off work - in fact, if the...

    Weather in April

    Hmm.......I put "weather + April" into the search box and ended up here......While I found the thread very interesting it does not really answer my question. If someone could give me an indication of what the weather on the Camino Frances is like in April and May it would be much appreciated. :)

    Weather is unpredictable

    We all know how unpredictable the weather can be on the Camino, especially on the Norte. So, I am seeking your experiences to the amount of rain fall in July and August on the Norte. I'm hoping I won't need rain pants and can get away with a lightweight poncho. Thoughts and stories welcome...

    Weather in O Ceibero now

    I’m one day from León. Been following the snow fall as much I can on Spanish weather stations. Anyone know first hand how the snow & weather is in & around the O Ceibrio area? From my view it’s beautiful !! Snow top mountains surround me! Been Camino to all!

    Dusting of snow south of Burgos

    Woke up in the albergue at Santo Domingo de Silos this morning to find 2-3cm of snow lying. Very pretty and nothing to worry about and it was mostly burnt off by a bright sun by the time I got to the highest point of the day (c1200m) on the way to lovely Covarrubias. But some other parts of...

    Hot weather south of Porto.

    Just checked the forecast. In Tomar and surrounding areas, the temperatures for the couple of days after today are expected to be close to 100 - heat index higher. May be time to consider a taxi :) Don’t let your zeal overcome your common sense.
