I have done it twice. The weather was not bad. Many places close at the end of October, so plan accordingly. Crowds will have diminished, but you will not be alone. Buen camino.

Frances, autumn/winter; 2004, 2005-2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
This earlier thread re walking the CF in late autumn offers many helpful tips including gear lists.

Starting mid-October not all albergues will be open, but the welcome at those albergues which are is usually very sincere. Most will be heated and/or have blankets. Generally the hospitaleros know who is open on the next stage.

Happy planning and Buen camino!

I always carry layers, so I added nothing. I use a lightweight nylon sleep sack and albergue blankets, and had no problem with cold. I now have a Cumulus sleeping bag (internet from Poland, Magic 125 Zip at 270 grams), and would take it.
