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.

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?).

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!
