Haven't done the Ingles in January but Galacia can be wet and cold, even snow is possible. From past experiences of walking in winter on other camino routes, note daylight hours are shorter. It is wise given the darker days and possibilities of bad weather, to bring fluorescent/ reflective vest or something similar so to be easier seen.

Hi.
Anyone started from Ferrol in January? Ideas on weather? Any comments appreciated
I like the ingles and recall walking in a February. Cool and damp. A feature of the route is that catering and accommodation is generally the established local infrastructure and not really created for peregrinos (cf the Frances) and - in normal times - more likely to function year-round.

Hi.
Anyone started from Ferrol in January? Ideas on weather? Any comments appreciated
Hi, I started in Ferrol on 10 Feb 2020. Had reasonably good weather, overcast most of the time, but very little rain, just a few showers. I stayed in the municipal albergues in Neda, Pontedeume, Betanzos and Bruma. The first three nights I was alone; there were a couple of Spanish guys in Bruma. I was alone again the next night at Albergue Camino Real in Sigueiro. I enjoyed those few days on the Ingles in winter, but I was probably lucky with the weather, it could have poured all week.

When I did the Ingles in '19, the temperatures in southern Spain were 115 degrees F. On the Ingles, I started out each day with multiple layers. I can't even start to imagine how cold it might be in Jan.

Hi there ! Myself i am planning to do this one starting januari second, i'm trying to get info about accomodations and trying to see if the current covid situation is having a big impact on normal availability.
The climate conditions don't worry me too much i really just dont want to end up having to camp or pay an insane amount of money for a bed and a hot meal.
Needless to say it will be my first :)

Just one thing to note the 6th January is Epiphany/kings day which is a holiday in Spain. It may effect what is open including shops, bars, accommodation
