Christmas on the Baztan/CF

Time of past OR future Camino
CF July 2018

I will commence the Baztan on December 21st and head for Pamplona - I’m prepared for the problems I could face with this plan but look forward to the challenge(s) and a bus to the CF is a nice fallback should any problems be too troublesome - is anybody else considering this route in December? 🤓 BC to all 🤝

Not considering it - this year. But let us know how it goes. I did it in autumn some years back. Jealous!
I’m in Lecce making my way to Santa Maria di Leuca just now😀.

Hi
I have walked the Baztan twice and it’s one of my favorites. When I was walking last May we were always able to find lodging but more often than not we were the only occupants. I am an enthusiastic wild camper but my walking partner was not.
I am thinking that in December there would be parts of this route that could resemble winter mountaineering more than a pilgrimage.
This will be fun if you’re equipped for and comfortable with winter weather and occasional steep icy slopes and are prepared and equipped to sleep out in the snow.
I like your back-up plan if you can really decide to bail out too early. The alternative, bailing too late, can end up with you being featured in some entertaining newspaper coverage that you won’t have an opportunity to read.
Thanks. I’ve had a very pleasant evening just thinking about what it would be like to walk the Baztan in December.

Best of luck, Gary

PS-I hope to start Barcelona to Santiago in early March.

Cheers Gary, I appreciate the input and I’m glad you’ve been able to reminisce. It looks like a beautiful Camino. I have friends in Bayonne who I shall be staying with who are year round hikers. We’ll assess the weather situation and accommodation options before departure and if it’s looking dicey then it’ll be a hop to SJPDP 👍🏻 I’m happy with either outcome 🙃
