It has occurred to me that my best bet for another solo Camino would be in December/January when my younger kids can go to work with Daddy for a couple of weeks then he can supervise them over the summer break.
Question is whether the Lana would be OK to walk then. Obviously from Burgos to Santiago would be fine as people do it all the time.

Hi Kiwi,

We are also considering walking the Lana this winter, roughly mid-Jan til Mid-Feb (and only as far as Burgos). Would welcome any further thoughts on its suitability for winter walking.

Buen Camino

Hi Dan (@econodan) I'd love it if you could give a wee report back once you're done! My main questions are: are albergues/polideportivos etc open? Is anything unpassable due to weather?

Hi,

We're trying to run down the same sort of information, to help us decide on the Camino de la Lana or perhaps another route for this outing. Also looking at the Mozarabe.

It looks like you are considering heading out this December, so you'd be ahead of us. Whichever Camino, I'll be posting here or in a separate blog so you can follow along.

And I thought I would be all alone this winter, shame I'm heading south instead, maybe I see some of you, lookout for the donkeys.

Nomad: When do you plan to be walking? We're looking at roughly mid-Jan to mid-Feb on the Lana. Maybe we will cross paths?

I'm waiting on the farrier to make me some donkey size shoes but I should get to Burgos by about the 20th, I'm leaving from Cantabria so got to cross over the mountains first. Its hard to miss me, I have my donkey and her seven month foal, a German shepherd and a very big Spanish mastiff. Keep me updated where you are as I rest the donkey at least one day a week and may not be directly on the Camino. Look forward to meeting you
