Hello,Sanman, I am also not good in the heat. LFfit, you are correct about Albergues opening after Easter and it can be rainy in June as well. Robi I have read your mid March experience. Dennis, yes, a rainy May. Coming from Vancouver I am used to rain. Thus far, after reading the input from The Forum I have moved to starting some time in April after Easter. Thanks to all of you for your input. All future input appreciated as well. BUEN CAMINOHi Elvis - i posted a similar question earlier this year. We were wondering late April or May 2023, as expected answers were diverse, general consensus was later is better. We are walking to Muxia so we plan to start late April, we are not good in the heat and so we feel this will be a good date for us! Buen Chemin!
Rick M, Mid April is what I have been moving towards during the course of the day.I left irun in mid April 2019, and conditions were excellent. A few rainy days, but nothing to be concerned about. I think that's an ideal time to go as the tourist season has not started yet, but the weather was perfect for walking with 15 to 18 degrees most days.

tjz thanks for sharing. I'm happy to hear you had a great Camino. Buen Camino.We started in Bayonne on March 21 this year and made it as far as Laredo on March 31. It was lovely cool and scenic. Not too many pilgrims (or tourists) that time of year. We will return same time next year and pickup where we left off. We have done all our Camino segments in mid-March to early-April as that is when my wife gets 2 weeks off from school. The weather can be anything, but we have enjoyed it all. This time we really only had 2 days with significant rain. We are from Colorado so we prefer snow (not likely on the Norte) and rain to baking heat. Buen Camino!
