Hello Pilgrims. Who is going to do the camino portuges da costa end of november/ beginning of december ?. I walked the camino Portuguese before, the interior variant. Any advice is also greatly appreciated, since it is winter after all. My first winter Camino. Doing a short one this time starting 29th of november in Porto.

We walked the Coastal from Porto + Espiritual in Jan this year. Mix of glorious sunshine, some drizzle, one day of downpour only. No strong winds, mild temp from +3 to +14C. Portuguese was a pleasant surprise to walk as expected much worse weatherwise. Now for me it's definitely an all season Camino, very comfortable to walk there! Will walk in Portugal in winter again if I have a chance. Finding accommodation is no problem even in winter, all or most of the municipal albergues are open and of good quality, some private albergues and of course pensions are available as well. There is no such thing as proper winter in Portugal as their winters feel like my regular autumn/spring with mild temperatures. Mind you a different point of view on the heating situation though so it might be cold in some albergues, especially if it's raining - take warm clothes for the albergues! My day-to-day blog of the Coastal in winter, pics a international :) https://anna-camino.livejournal.com/5457.html
These are the flowers from my Camino in Jan, you can glimpse some weather on the pics there as well: https://anna-camino.livejournal.com/5063.html Bom Caminho! :)

Dolf. I delayed plans for walking mid October as the weather looked iffy and things got busy at home. Also looking at late November/early December specifically because the long range forecast, for what it is worth, looks favourable!

We're doing the first bit from December 26th and until we have to be back at work - so no Compostela this time, just a nice walk.
