Hi all, leaving for Irun on the 22 August and wondering if anyone out there can tell me what the mosquito situation is like on the northern route? Many thanks! 🌞🇨🇦

Mosquitoes love me too, but I don't remember encountering any on the Norte.

Yes
Mosquitoes have never been a problem (for me) on any of the routes...as far as I can recall.

The primitivo and VdlP both had some serious little fly problems in places. Of course, that could have just been a time of the year.

Camino's Frances, Fisterre, Portuges. Over 180 day
Mosquitoes need warm, standing water to lay eggs and produce.

I left Irun 2 weeks ago. Be prepared for everything. My first day from Irun I got bitten by a spider that crawled up my leg and I got an infection. There were also other bugs that bit up my legs. No mosquitoes though. My boyfriend was left untouched.
