SJPP to Roncesvalles

Feeling the call again...
to walk the Camino Frances starting from SJJP, around February

- What are the alternative as the Napoleon road is closed until April?

- Is it worthwhile? (meaning nice landscape, not wanting to walk on the side of concrete road most of the time) or should I just not bother and start from Roncevalles or further

- what villages - etapas is the mountain /Pyrenees area covering exactly ?

- Is there anything else I should be aware starting the Camino in winter ?

Thank you very much for any help and info :)

The alternate route is via Valcarlos and those who have walked it think it's just as beautiful Any of the usual Camino sites will give you all the details you need: Eroski, Gronze, etc.

Gypsy Moon,

For many current experiences re the CF during this winter see this very useful Forum thread by SYates.

https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/camino-frances-in-winter.44511/

Also scan this earlier Forum thread for posts/ links by many of us who have walked the camino at this time to help you further prepare your winter camino.

Stay safe, warm and Buen camino !

Thanks a lot , I appreciate your help. Inspiring, but also realistic... Walked the Camino Frances last year from Navarrete in March/April, under rain mostly, and some snow... wondering if same type of shoes (gortex) will be appropriate, esp. for the SJJP to Logrono bit... not even sure there is much of other alternative as not intending to walk in ski shoes (!)

Have a great Sunday
