- Past OR future Camino
- Frances (July 2016), Primitivo (July 2018), Portuguese (March 2019)
Probably not the right thread to post to but we’ve just finished the Inglés today and everything appears to have been fully booked. Normally we’d book one or two days ahead at most but this time we booked some weeks ago but even then we had difficulty finding accommodation. If the Primitivo and the Inglés are full, I can’t imagine what it’ll be like on the Frances.My friend Ton and Ria who run Albergue Ponte Ferreira 27 km after Lugo are saying that the Primitivo is just crazy at the moment. They are booked out until I don't know when.
I'm also a member of many Facebook Camino groups including one about the Primitivo and everyone is saying the same. Book, book, book! That's the only way to go. I did the same in June when I walked the Salvador and Primitivo not because there were many pilgrims, there wasn't, but because so many albergues were still closed.
I personally would walk a different Camino if heading out now. September looks to be a busy month too!
