One week on the Camino...

I´m a 41 yo female who wants to do a pilgrim walk in the beginning of june. Have found lots of info on the internet about the different walks but need some advice. First; Which walk/part of walk should I choose? I like to spend 5-8 days, reasonable fit and enjoy nice views. Second; I prefer not to plan so much in advance but how is it with accommodation in june, do I need to book ahead (how long in advance, costs)? Third: What is the weather like in June?

Thanks!

Welcome to the pilgrim forum, Catarina. The weather in June will be good, possibly hot, and the Camino will be busy but not over-populated, so you do not need to worry about finding accommodation. When you ask which part of the route you should choose, it depends on what you intend in the future.

1. Do you want to return and do more? In which case, I recommend you start from St Jean Pied-de-Port and go to Pamplona. Return later to continue.

2. Or do you simply want to go to Santiago? In which case, you could consider getting the bus from Lugo to Ambasmestas, then walk up through O Cebreiro and do the one-week walk to journey's end.

3. A quiet and pleasant route for an easy week's walk would be from Coruna to Santiago on the Camino Ingles (CSJ notes available) and the June weather would make that ideal.

A few ideas, but other forum members will doubtless suggest more. Keep looking in here: you will get plenty of help.

Sorry to differ on this one. The walk from A Coruna only takes 3 days and is not long enough to qualify for the Compostela. The ''real'' Camino Ingles starts in Ferrol, goes for 5 to 6 days (average 20Km a day) and is not that ''easy''.
That being said, I recommend it strongly.

Have a good one, cheers,

Jean-Marc

Yes, I'm glad you spotted the deliberate error: I like to keep you people on your toes! :D I'm always muddling them up: I was thinking of El Ferrol. :( I walked that route last year to try out Johnny Walker's CSJ notes before he published them. You don't really need a week for that either, but why not linger and enjoy it! You say it's not 'easy' but I suppose it just seemed so, as I had just finished walking from Worcester to Santiago just before doing it. There are a couple of long sections that are quite stretching, I suppose, but I'd say it was quite straightforward otherwise, wouldn't you?

Gareth,

I completed the Camino Inglés, after having done the Camino del Norte and with a few days to spare before my return to Canada.
My statement that the Inglés is not that easy my have been coloured by the fact that I had a mean bout of food poisoning in Bruma. I was out of commission for two days. Still, I think it is one of the most enjoyable caminos and recommend it before the Sarria Run to anyone with just a week to spare.
I plan on returning next fall with my wife, after the VDLP.

Keep testing us! :mrgreen:

Hi

Then there's always the Camino Portugues beginning at Tui - 115 km to Santiago de Compostella. I would break up the walk by spending a day in Pontevedra, where there is so much to see.

Cheers Rose Louise
