- Past OR future Camino
How do pilgrims handle severe heat on the Camino (35-38 C, 95-100 F)? Aside from the usual precautions for hydration, frequent breaks, lightweight clothing, etc, what other precautions do you take? Do you start the day earlier to finish earlier? Walk shorter distances on very hot days? Take a day off to wait for a cooler next day? The weather is hot and humid where I live, about 95 F, and I'm age 65. Perhaps I should wait for a cooler day for a long training walk, but I don't want to find myself on the Camino in very hot conditions with no training experience in similar conditions. Tentatively planning for the Primitivo around late May/early June 2022. Buen Camino, everybody.
