Hi Lorelei,

There's no guarantee what the weather, the number of peregrinos, the availability of water or space at the albergues will be. As much as you may plan, the Camino will dictate everything! That's the reality! The key is beginning with a pack on only what you REALLY need and putting one foot in front of the other. Start off with the knowledge that you'll have great days when all is wine (oh how I enjoyed the wine) and roses. Then realize that roses have thorns!

Take the first step and keep moving!

Buen Camino

Anyway, Lorelei, in autumn it's normal a wet weather in the Camino del Norte. This is the reason why, all the north of Spain is "green" (we call it "La España humeda", the wet Spain) and for example Castilla, Burgos, Palencia, etc, it's "less green".

During the last years weather is crazy, but if you find several rainy days this is normal.

But don't worry! the camino will be yours, no runs for the albergues, people is nice, everything is green, beautiful, food is incredible, and ....

Buen Camino,

Javier Martin

Hi Lorelei,
For a more-or-less reply, it is about 825km from Irun to Santiago (depending on the route you take) so if you can walk 25kms per day you should do it in 33 days. Some villages are close together and others are further apart so you might need a few more days.
Did I send you Annette Rausberg’s diary? She walked the camino norte in 29 days a few years ago and kept a charming online diary of her walk. Mail me if you would like a copy. sillydoll@gmail.com
