Hi

just made a last minute decision to head to Porto and walk the Coastal first week of October .

i want to travel light so was wondering if Albergues supply blankets or whether i need a sleeping bag.

if they have blankets i will take a silk liner for hygene/comfort.

thanks in advance.

Some do, some don't. Where they did provide blankets, some needed to be supplemented in any case. I walked in May, carried a sleeping bag and liner, and used them regularly when I stayed in albergues.

Always be prepared, few public albergues have blankets and fewer have turned on heaters. I’m volunteering now in Ribadiso and I see pilgrims with sleeping bags the obviously just bought, strapped to their packs hitting them in the knees. Go prepared, it is hot today and cold tonight.

Planning : Camino Frances - Sept 2022
I took a sleeping bag and turned it into a duvet. I sleep warm and need to throw it off me when I feel hot during the night. It also saves weight and my "sleeping bag reworked into a duvet", now has no zipper and its smaller. I cut off parts of it. I am bringing a very thin sheet to sleep on.

I completed the full Camino in May with just a liner. It was cool one night but that Albergue had blankets. The rooms tend to heat up with so many people sleeping in them.

Martin64 said he’s going in October, not May. In May the days begin to get warmer. In October they definitely begin to get colder, especially at night! I think a sleeping bag is necessary!
