Primitivo in July/sleeping bag?

Hello, Last 2 weeks in July I am walking the Primitivo and from what I have read the weather is changeable on that route. Do any of you seasoned pilgrims think a sleeping bag is necessary, just a light one. Or is it a crazy idea? Cold feet at Night 😪

I don’t think a sleeping bag is necessary at all, especially in July. I walked the Primitivo in May/June last year without one. The albergues have sufficient blankets if it gets cold.

Thanks Nick. Good to know you can get blankets at albergues. I thought it was just a bed.

Just finished the Primitivo in the last 2 weeks and only carried a silk sleep sack. Sleeping bag isn't necessary.

Hi I'm starting my first Camino early in September will a sleeping bag be necessary then?

@NigelP52 - I was there last August-September and certainly didnot need one. It was actually too warm, but you are going to have to be the judge on this since everyone sleeps differently. I would think a silk sleep sack should be enough, plus they sooo much lighter to carry than a sleeping bag.

I will be walking, Finisterre, Muxia, Inglis first two weeks of September. My sleeping bag weighs 550gr. I really do not want to sleep cold, what are the chances of getting blankets at all of the albergues ??

I cannot recall an albergue where I was NOT offered a blanket or at least a sheet.

Small chance of there not being blankets at some of the municipal ones. Stick to privates and you'll probably be okay.

They exist - Some municipals on the Sanabres have only mattresses with plastic covers. No blankets. (I can't remember if they had pillows). My guess is that this makes it easier to prevent bedbug infestations.
