Hi!

I walked two years ago from SJPP to Finisterre and what I really appreciated was meeting people. I'm planning to walk from Oviedo to Santiago next summer, alone as I was last time, but I'd like not to be the only one in the albergue. I was told, and it's also said on the Internet, that there are few people there and you can walk two or three days without meeting anybody. Is it true?

I would think if you are walking in the Summer, that you will find others, especially now that the Camino is so popular and many are choosing to not do the Camino Frances for it being so crowded.

Hello Emilio,

It all depends on which month you decide to do it, but it is a route that is becoming more and more traveled. Here are the number of people from last summer that arrived to Santiago via the Camino Primitivo and went to the Pilgrims' Office:
June: 234
July: 502
August: 814

Stats taken from: http://www.archicompostela.org/Peregrin ... nacion.htm

Saludos and happy holidays!

Emilio,
I walked this route starting from Oviedo on 5 October last year. There was a group of 4 Belgian pilgrims whom I met in Aviles and whom I saw from time to time all the way to Santiago. Except for them I saw 2 walking pilgrims and 2 cyclists between Oviedo and Mariz, and another 4 walking pilgrims between Mariz and Arzua. After Arzua there were too many to count. Reading the notebooks in the refuges there seemed to be several people staying on most nights in September. I walked the French route last year and much preferred the isolation of the northern route.
