Does anyone know of a company who will transfer our luggage in the Camino de Levante please? Leaving Valencia around mid April.
Hi, just wondering (walking with my hubby in 2022) did you know what the average cost of accommodation along the Levante was? Thanks in advance for any information you can give me - just trying to work out a budget of sorts.Only few pilgrims hike on Levante. I walked on it in August 2019 : I never heard of luggage transfer. From Valencia to Zamora, I met only one pedestrian pilgrim
did you know what the average cost of accommodation along the Levante was?
Thanks Peregrina2000, very helpful of you and thank you for your response... Hope you are staying safe and covid free.Hi, Jude,
Welcome to the forum. I think you’ll love the Levante, but I’m virtually certain there is no luggage transfer. Taxis are probably your bedt bet and tat will be expensive, at least 1€ per km.........the top of the sub-forum on the Levante. I think you will get a good sense there. My experience is that the prices of lodging in Spain have not gone up much in the last few years, but who knows what Covid will do to the availability and pricing of these places.
Lots of forum members happy to discuss the Levante, so ask away! Buen camino, Laurie
In my experience, the Spanish Postal Service is quite reliable, but I know others who have had problems. The real issue, I think, is that on the Levante you are likely to spend many nights in towns without post offices.I am not sure how reliable the Spanish Postal Service is but you could post a suitcase (in a box?) to four or five stages ahead. This would reduce your daily pack load. We did this on a trek across Switzerland some years ago.
Hi, we were planning Sept 2022 at this stage or perhaps Apr/May - hard to know at this stage. I saw my surgeon the other day and mentioned my plans for another Camino - he said he didn't think with covid that that would be likely - wonder what the medical profession know but are not telling us?? He wouldn't elaborate when I asked him for some reason just said that he didn't think covid would be a non-issue by then. Sure hope he is wrong.I have been planning t..... I was hoping for things to open up in spring of 2021, but I now think that September may be the earliest sensible date. We'll find out when we find out. That's when we will find out.
I don't expect Covid will be a "non-issue" in 18 months, either.
Maybe the herd immunity was his point as well - hubby and I were just talking about that as well.I agree. Even when a vaccine is available it will be a long time before enough people have been vaccinated to reach herd immunity, and it's still unknown how long a vaccine will protect from the virus.
I would expect, nothing. There are many unknowns and his guess is as good/bad as any. I don't expect Covid will be a "non-issue" in 18 months, either.
True and he did say to me that from Australia we have to spend a long time travelling inside an airplane as well - confined space etc.. Still I remain optimistic and will keep watching old vlogs to get me through. Hoping everyone stays covid safe. Keep on planningFrom discussions with my GP, they don't know anything more than is generally known. However, they are aware of possible delays in vaccine production, and likely delays and headaches in widespread vaccinations in a short amount of time. Many years ago, a fine young Irish doctor told me that she could make educated guesses, while I could only make guesses.
