Camino Frances Albergues

Hi all.
I'm planning to walk the Camino Frances, in late March/early April, starting in St Jean. Does anyone have any experiences with regards to the albergues at this time of year? Did you have trouble getting a bed? If so what did you do?
Cheers Patricio.

Hi Patricia,
The main problem in March could be finding an open albergue!
I doubt you'll have too much competition for beds but, it you do, you'll have to find a room at an inn, small hotel or casa rural.

Thanks for your reply. I haven't actually fixed a date yet so I assume that if I go in april I'll have no problems with finding an open albergue.

Cheers PatriciO. :D

Hi Patricio,

there are some albergues which open after Easter, but I've been walking the Frances a few times in March/ April, and I never had a problem with finding a bed. You normally can check with the hospitaleros if the albergues on your next stage are open.

Two years ago I walked from Roncesvalles starting in very early March. I had no trouble finding albergues that were open. I found it a great time of year to walk. It was never crowded, there were never difficulties finding a bed, yet there were enough pilgrims for camaraderie. It was a little cold some days but not too bad.

Gracias Viajero.
That is what I hoped, though with this year being a holy year there might be a few more people going early to avoid the rush.
