If you are planning to start a Camino in September 2023, you are invited to add a post to this thread – scroll down to the last post, and create a new post giving your expected start date, start location, and the route if it is not the Francés.

Moderators will edit this first post to update the list. We will delete new posts regularly, after the list is updated, to keep the thread compact and easier to update. Post again if you see mistakes or omissions. (If you want to change your date, please tell us the old date as well as the new one so we don't need to hunt for it!)

This thread is intended only for updating the list of planned starts, so further discussion of plans, preparations, ride shares, etc., should be done on other threads or private Conversation.

, which creates a quote. Do not try to edit the list on a quote. Instead, go to the bottom of the thread (where the box for "Post reply" appears before the photos) and add a new post with the information.

Don't add emojis to your posts, since moderators use emojis to signal to each other that the post has been taken care of.

All the monthly threads are pinned to the top of the "Introduce yourself..." section of the forum here.

Camino Way markers in Bronze
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk. Discount is taken at check out, only by using this link.
I have decided to start from SJPDP on the morning of Sept. 24th. I plan to stay in Pamplona on 9/21 (flying from US to Madrid then train to Pamplona ). I'll take the bus from Irun to SJPDP on 9/22 and rest there in SJPDP 1 extra night before starting the climb on the 24th. Time cannot pass fast enough! I'll have about 40 days to walk. Not sure how far I will get because I like to "smell the roses". Buen Camino, All!

Hi all,

My Hubbie and myself are planning, if the rest of our trip goes to plan, to start walking from Le Puy around 16th September... though have just discovered there is a couple of big Rugby world cup games happening around that time which is making transport and accom in Lyon hard. C'est la vie

Hi! My friend and I plan to start in Gijon (Norte) on Sept. 11. Life has thrown a couple of curveballs this year, so we are using Santiago Ways for lodging/portage on our self-guided walk. Hoping to meet cycling friends in Santiago on September 25. Looking forward to seeing you all along the trail. Buen Camino!

2023 Camino Guides
The 2023 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Hello, I’m doing another stage on the VDLP from Caceres to Zamora and start from Caceres on the 7th September. It was amazing from Seville to Caceres so hopefully I’ll meet some more lovely pilgrims on this journey.✅

I'll be starting Sept 22 from SJPP, taking a few rest days along the way and ending on Oct 30th. My husband will join the last week, and perhaps my cousin will join somewhere in the middle.

Get your today and start planning.
Starting from SJPP on 29 August. Stopping in Auberge Borda for the night to ease into my walk. Giving myself about 6 weeks to meander and enjoy my first camino.
Buen Camino

Walking Sarria to Santiago from Monday Sept 18th arriving at Santiago airport on the 17th. Looking to see if anyone is interested in sharing a taxi from airport to Sarria on afternoon of Sunday September 17th.
