CF during Easter 2024

Time of past OR future Camino
Sept/Oct 2023
I'm looking for advice on how to best manage walking the Camino during Easter week (2024). Although certainly not my 1st choice, it may be that I end up including Easter week in my spring 2024 Camino. I plan to walk Somport to the CF and on to SDC.

Are there specific towns to avoid that week? Does one need to reserve rooms ahead for the entire week?

Thanks!
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Have not been there that time of year. Maybe @Vacajoe can comment as he has opened the albergue at Canfranc Pueblo in the spring a few times now. I would think Jaca might be busy. Also check ahead as a couple albergues may be booked up at Artieda and Ruesta especially on the weekend.

Thank you! And best of luck on your upcoming Camino with your students!
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

Why not? It is a great experience, and not a problem if you are somewhat prepared.

I would avoid Sarria to Santiago during that whole week because of crowds, but I wouldn't expect masses of pilgrims in the earlier stages of the Camino Frances. If you want private accommodation in any popular cities, you should reserve in advance, particularly for long weekend Thursday to Easter Sunday. If you are staying in pilgrim albergues, there will probably not be a problem.

If you will be in a city, Google to find what procesiones are scheduled. Maybe stay an extra night in a private room so you can stay up late and watch the drama. Even the small towns have interesting processions and ceremonies, so allow enough time to pause as you start out in the morning, or even as you walk through.
