Good day pilgrims.
I have only 9 - 10 days of walk (my whole trip is on september 12 - 23), so i cant decide what section of CF to choose.
Sarria -> Fisterra or Ponferrada -> SdC?
I like: Forest/woods, lakes/rivers, big ascentions/mountains, less cities/towns - more nature.
I dont like: Empty fields, sea, shores, sand, asphalt walks.
Please help to choose.
Thank you.

Essential question.
Do you want to receive a Compostela?

If Yes, that restricts you to sections ending in SdC

Ponferrada to Santiago by the Camino Invierno will give you all of those things.

Thanks. Did not know about this camino. Its 263 km? Looks great for me.
Is it popular/crowded like CF? Will there be any problems to find albergues?

It's gaining in popularity but nothing compared to the Camino Frances, certainly no crowding. There are some long/tough stages but infrastructure is improving and plenty of accommodation options in September (I walked it same time last year, it took me 10 days).

There are plenty of Invierno threads on here, search away...

I think both Sacha and Flog offer interesting points of view… although I have not yet been on the Invierno. I do worry about the very tight timing for the Invierno though

Camino Frances
My favourite section is Saint Jean Pied de Port to Logroño. Beautiful greenery, forests, mountains, medieval towns, etc
I second this. If I only had 9-10 days, following a more “standard” walking schedule, I might pick Pamplona - Burgos, or SJPP - Burgos if you can swing an extra day or so. Just such a different experience than the last stretch, but you’d have to let the idea of getting a completely go…

I did not walk the Invierno but it is amazing what we can find on the internet.

I just finished walking from Cruz de Ferro to Molinasca and I want to warn pilgrims about the trail condition. The trail is really rough with large loose rocks and other hazards. I started in SJPP...
Two days ago I finished my Camino (Ponferrada ->SdC -> Finisterre -> SdC -> Airport). Did it in 10 days. In total it was like 440 km. I did some training before camino, so this pace/km per day was...
