Hi to Everyone!

I wanna go on Camino del norte this year but I'm not sure if i should postpone it or not because of covid situation. I have a ticket to San Sebastian on 8 August and I'm planning to start walking on 9....but from what I'm reading the accomoditons are really expensive and most of the muncicipal albergues are closed, so I'm not quite sure what to do. what's your advice? is there anyone else who wanna start around my dates? maybe we can chat more and plan somthing together. Gracias :)

Hi,

As for your question: I guess nobody can give any guarantees. The covid-situation is still very fluid it seems. Although there seems to be a growing number of pilgrims walking...

You could take a look at Gronze's website. It seems to be as up-to-date as it can get, but it might vary from day to day.


If an albergue is marked by the next symbol: when rolling over it with your mouse it'll say 'cerrado temporalmente' (or maybe closed indefenitely). Although th
e website is in Spanish, it's easy enough to work, even if you don't understand the language.

You are going in prime tourist season of course. Secondly be careful of more closures not more openings as the Delta variant runs rampant around the world.
Good tip about using Gronze:

A good way to get around this issue if your Spanish is not adequate is to open Gronze in Google Chrome it it will translate it to English and it does a pretty good job.
I would also download the Wise Pilgrim app and the Buen Camino app. No website or app has all the choices that may be available. They are free and will definitely help. I would also make sure your cell phone carrier allows you to make calls within Spain. You will want to call ahead to make sure albergues are still open. Just because it shows that it is open it may not be. Things are pretty fluid.
