Nunca se camina solo
Hello Clara, welcome to the Forum. JUly and August will be warm so take as little as possible. The sun and heat help drying times so we can take less at the height of summer and wash what we are carrying more often.

If you use the search facility at the top of the page and/or go to to the Camino del Norte section of the forum you will find a lost of posts.

Here are a couple to get you started:


3 pairs of sock
3 pairs of underwear
3 tee shirts
1 pair of longpants (that can be converted to short)
1 pair of shorts
1 pair of walking shoes
1 rain coat
blister pack of plasters and compeed
small torch
a hat
ziploc bags for passport and credential

Wear 1 set (socks underwear teeshirt) 1 set drying on your pack with safety pins 1 dry set in your pack
Bodyglide as a moisturiser for my feet.

Hope this helps
