Camino del Norte-Primitivo April-May 2018
I may end up doing the Primitivo from Oviedo to Lugo the first 10 days of April 2023. Anyone here have experience with the Primitivo that early in the season. I did it the last week pf April and beginning of May 2018 and I had horrendous weather on the Hospital route. If I do this I will do the hospital route again.
mostly concerned about Albergues being open along the way..

I did it in 2020 and was stopped in Lugo by Covid in Italy. Planning to redo next year starting in March I expect the weather to be a challenge and some Albergues to be closed. I doubt the Hospitales route will be good for either of us. Usually the Samblismo Albergue opens mid April. Buen Camino

Check gronze.com to see if they list opening dates of the albergues on the Primitivo. I know for the Norte I was able to check opening/closing dates of albergues. And on the Frances/Norte/Primitivo they did mark open vs closed albergues pretty accurately, even during 2021/COVID closures.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Still need to study the routes / alternative routes!
Very Best

Join the Camino Cleanup in May from Ponferrada to Sarria. Registration closes Mar 22.
I'm planning on walking the Salvador and Primitivo in mid May 2023. The hills and weather will be quite challenging.
Did this recently, fantastic route. Hopefully the weather will favour you! I remember May-June this year quite well, 2 long heat waves and the week in between was raining everyday. I think the people walking the Salvador in May this year enjoyed a lot of the sun, as the high altitude took away some of the heat (@jungleboy and @BobY333?).
 
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).

Easter is April 9th, thus, Holy week is 2-8. You may encounter closures in various places along the way. Of course you may also encounter some festivals or other activities as well. Buen Camino!
 
My plan is to walk the Primitivo early April. Will probably start the week after Easter.
 
I am arriving in Oviedo late in the evening on April 12th, where/when can I get my hands on a pilgrim passport?

I would like to get of to an early start the next day, so I would prefer to get this sorted on the 12th.

And, I would be grateful for a recommendation on a cheap, and central, hostel for one night in the same city.

Really looking forward to this, almost five years after I did the Frances.

Thanks!

I am already sorted, but thanks for the heads up.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Perhaps useful for other peregrinos; I tried to book the albergue in Samblismo on the 15th of April but it is not open yet…
 
€2,-/day will present your project to thousands of visitors each day. All interested in the Camino de Santiago.

I will be walking Camino Primitivo this May (yay! ), and have a few questions for the people who walked it before. I see people talking about bedbugs on other routes. As Primitivo is not as...
Can anyone confirm whether the Albergue Juvenil Castro is open? I've seen conflicting reports and emails I sent to the 2 addresses I found online both bounced back. I hope to visit in late March...
