I have already made reservations for many places for Holy Year 2021 and believe it or not, it's filling up fast.
If you plan on walking in Holy Year and plan on making reservations, you may want to get moving on it.

That's all folks.;)

I was in Santiago two months ago - and saw the prediction of 10 million visitors to the city in 2021 - 10% as pilgrims....

In the interests of self preservation, I am voting with my feet and planning to be somewhere else in 20121 - haven't decide what and where but it wont be doing a camino..

NOTE - a more 'modest' projection by a tour operator Yolandi van der Wath of Tours to Israel & Beyond was that "between 500 000 - 600 000 pilgrims will flock to Santiago during the next Holy Year - 2021!" (https://www.traveller24.com/FindYou...or-santiago-camino-holy-year-in-2021-20190219)

Hola Annie, well at this stage I do not intend to be anywhere near any Camino in 2021. But if I was I would be hiring a mobile home, with a co-driver to meet me at our agreed to end of day stopover. It solves the accommodation and 10kg backpack issue.

Kindly advice which month (e.g., June, July, Aug, Sept) or months in 2021 are filling up, as well as the places (e.g., Sarina and thereafter) if you don't mind.

Best regards,

@Annie, are you finding things that are full on the internet booking sites, like booking.com, hotels.com, etc, or are you hearing directly from the establishments that their places are already full on your proposed dates in 2021? I would imagine that any place that takes a reservation directly for 2021 would want some kind of a deposit, and I also imagine that there are LOTS of places on the Francés that are not even going to start taking reservations yet. But I could be wrong on both counts, so I hope you can give more info!

Both. But usually when I contact them personally. Booking.com is not taking reservations for 2021 yet, but several websites are already indicating their rooms are nearly booked up for 2021 in some places.

Wont be walking in 2021. Via Francigena might be a better bet. As far as booking ahead, I never do it. Its just my personal opinion but I think booking ahead is a problem causing a problem.

Camino Frances (2015, 2017, 2019) and plans for 2021 (Sept, Oct)
My wife and I have been walking the Camino Frances on a two year cycle, each time in Sept - Oct for the years 2015, 2017, 2019. During our recent camino, we asked many albergue owners about how crowded the camino will be in 2021. One said that he already had reservations for 2021 and only had a few rooms still available. So we decided to walk the camino next year to avoid the crowds. We already have firm reservations for private rooms every night in 2020.

Walking VDLP in 2020 and Ingles as well as Finistere in 2021. I use an agent to help with bookings. They also said that they have been surprised at the number of reservations that they have already taken. I don't mind the crowds but I suspect the prices will go up just as they have for hundreds of years along any popular route during festival time.

Can you share which private rooms places you have found that you like? We are planning on walking the camino Frances for the first time in October. Thanks!

2021 might also be a good year to try some of the untraveled caminos — Olvidado from Bilbao to Ponferrada, Mozárabe from any one of a number of places to Mérida, Levante, Ebro, Castellano-ARagonés, some of those Portugués caminos (Zamorano, Geira, Interior), the list goes on and on. Santiago might not be on my list of destinations for 2021, but I get so much from my caminos that even without the longed-for entrance into Santiago, I sure hope to walk!

I'm planning on 2021, and to be in Santiago for St. James Feast Day. Have already started the process of reservations. I am walking Muxia/Finisterre reverse to Santiago.

Would you put the VDLP in this group?
