Time of past OR future Camino
May 2018; September 2018; May 2019; Sept (2019)
I would love to do the Camino de San Salvador which is only about a week through the most spectacular scenery. I have walked the Camino Frances many times with others and on my own but hesitate to do this one on my own as I tend to be absent-minded and I miss arrows. Looking for someone to walk with starting around May 1st but am flexible.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

I'll be on the Portuguese around this time but next year hoping to do the San Salvador/Primitivo for my 60th birthday. Please let us know how you get on in regards to weather/difficulty etc and good luck finding someone to walk with.
 
I’ve only walked it twice but both times had other pilgrims around each night. There are lots of arrows - hard to miss!
 
...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).
I went with a friend last May. We saw 4 pilgrims the entire hike. Very well marked. Beautiful. Use Endor's guide, make reservations, take snacks and dress warm. I'm 67. I'd love to do it again.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Hi Danielle, I wish I could join you! I walked it alone in the fall of 2022 and, with one exception, did not miss an arrow. (And I share your same trait.) I met 4 pilgrims total. Mostly good weather plus rain, which made the rocky stretches slippery. The month of May might still be cold; maybe even snowy. The CF has been wet and cold — but it is early April. Buen camino!
 
Hi Danielle, I am also contemplating walking that route but not until June 8. If you do walk it solo please post. Good luck!
 
I can't join you, but I really loved this Camino last year. A lack of arrows wasn't really a problem. If you tend to miss them you can always get an app like Wise Pilgrim and then if you ever get worried that you've gone astray you can check it and either set your mind at ease when you see you are still on Camino or see how to get yourself back on the trail.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!
Either make sure you are very fit before the start or give yourself a few days walking beforehand as it is a tougher than average route.
