(2010) March/April SJPP to Santiago and hence to Finisterre
(2016) Hospitalero Grañón 15-31 March
(2016) April Logroño to Santiago
(2017) Hospitalero Zamora 15-31 March
(2017) Hospilatero Emaus, Burgos 1-14 April
I assume that if one is walking in mid-to-late March it is more likely they will go the Valcarlos route than the Napoleon Route. Too bad Orisson does not open a bit sooner. :cry:

You could stay at Hunnto which is just a couple of kms from Orisson. The Pilgrims' Office will phone ahead and check if they have space for you.
There is an albergue in Valcarlos if you have to walk the road route - which you might have to do if the weather is bad.
Heard from Grant Spangler via another forum -

Greetings from the Camino. Just crossed into Castilla-Leon and theres snow, snow, snow, big wind and a bit (!) of mud. Staying with Acacio and Orietta, looking out the window at our winter wonderland. Deciding where to go today.
The weather was rather horizonal yesterday. Snow from the north and from the west. All at force ten. Rethinking the Patagonia R2 jackets sent forward to Elyn in Sahagun. We may be picking these up for use before crossing the Mointes de Leon and Cordillera Cantabrica.
Later.

Thank you everyone - I have sent email request for accommodation but given the website does say they're not open until April - I guess I may not hear from them until early March - I would assume they would start taking & acknowledging bookings a few weeks prior to opening :?: Anyway will soon see and I will keep on it - I don't leave Australia until early April so still have plenty of time - I will keep my eyes open :shock: lol

I note the "weather report" brrrrr given the crazy winter Europe is having and that they also had late snow falls end of March 2008, suspect & expecting not so fancy weather for when I commence on 13th April - am planning for snow at the beginning (Pyrenees crossing anyway) and have gone and purchased more layers!! And finally got boots instead of shoes - given I know I'm going to have a lot of rain as well - slippery conditions are NOT ankle friendly, so finally decided on boots for more support! Doing an ankle on the first couple of days will not make me a happy Pilgrim :?

2 months....roll on..... :p

Ciao ciao - Jacqui

P.S. if anyone has Facebook - please search for CAMINO HEARTBEAT that is my page and I will be blogging on that daily whilst I'm doing my Pilgrimage & that is also where my pics will be uploaded. Love to see as many as possible "hit" my page :D

I just booked a bed for April 15. I emailed them in English and they sent an invoice which I paid with Pay-Pal. With the fees it came to 37+euro for bed, dinner and breakfast. I was able to translate their website to English by clicking on an American flag icon.
