- Time of past OR future Camino
April 2020: Del Norte: Irun -> Santiago
April 2017: SJPDP -> Santiago -> Muxia -> Finisterre
I am planning on doing El Camino del Norte in 2020. I know that this route is less busy than the French route so in theory you can walk it in the more popular summer months without it being too overcrowded. But I've also heard that many Albergues change into tourist accommodation over the holiday period and that peregrinos then often have to make use of more expensive accommodation. Can anyone who walked del Norte in the past 2 years maybe shed some light as to what time of the year I would be able to stay in more affordable Albergues?
