Camino in September

Hi,
I will do camino from 10.8. until 10.9. I guess the weather in beginning of September is still warm, so I will not need to bring autumn clothes? How is usually in this time?
Thank you! I'm looking forward to doing it!

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

Hi Lana,

I've walked the Camino in September and found that a light fleece was enough to keep warm. Although it can get a bit chilly, and sometimes wet, in the morning in Galicia so a light water proof would be advisable, as well as a water proof rucksack cover.

I hope you enjoy your walk

Buen Camino!
 
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 walked this past September into October and there were mornings when it was quite cold. Dress in layers and you will be fine. Strip them off as the day warms up. It also depends on how cold you get. There were several afternoons when I could hardly wait to get into a warm shower to warm up. Be prepared for rain and blowing wind in Galicia!
 
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
I walked from 23 August to end of September.
You are leaving quite early in August and it will still be HOT - and very crowded as the European Schools, colleges and many businesses are on holiday then.
I only took a silk sleeping bag liner and it was quite sufficient. If it was cold, I asked for a blanket.
 
Hi Lana...and Welcome to the Forum!

As you can readily see, there are many folks on the Forum that will provide you valuable information and recommendations to make Your Camino an adventure.

There is a raft of info on the Forum. May I suggest you check the following:

1. The Pilgrim FAQ at the top right of the page.
2. The Class of 2010 to see whom else may be walking the Way at the same time
3. The Camino Calendar at the bottom of the page will also show whom is walking, from where and it also lists key events along the Way.
4. There's also a "search" capability at the top right. You can enter a keyword, such as: "food", "refuge Leon" and it will search the Forum and return links.
5. Another great resource is:

Hope that helps,

Buen Camino,
Arn

Higher elevations can get cold even in September, so take clothes that you can layer. Walking will keep you warm, but you also have to survive the evening! Albergues have blankets, so a light sleeping bag/sack will be sufficient. Gloves are handy in the morning cool air, but you can use your socks for hand warmth. It can rain any month, particularly in Galicia.
 
If you are really cold, you can often get blankets at the alberques but beware, they are often not all that clean and can be havens for bedbugs. I did not carry a sleeping bag. I carried a silk sleeping sack and made a 200 wt. polarfleece "blanket" for when I was cold--about the size of a throw. The combo was lighter than a sleeping bag and gave me flexibility as I could also use the rolled up blanket as support for my legs when they were sore.
