Camino Frances June 2018 & June 2020
Hi Everyone. My plan is to take 8 weeks holidays from work. I need that to be between June, July & August (due to seasonal work requirements).

So my question is, if you had to make this choice, when would you choose to do Camino Frances (eg early June to mid July, late June to early Aug, etc....)
Any why?

Thanks. Looking forward to your thoughts.

August unless you love the heat and Sun. I have found that even in early August it can be very hot and I found the Meseta very unpleasant from a temperature point-of-view. It was for me anyway.

Either way, you'll love it.

Buen Camino.
