Camino de Levante'
Greetings to all....

I would like to ask what the weather on the Camino de Levante' is likely to be in Spring....
Is April a pleasant time for this route? Do you think there would be too much rain at that time of year?
Most grateful for your advice and suggestions...

Cheers

The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
I started from Valencia in early May and it was perfect weather, but that was about a decade ago. The weather is surely more crazy now than it was then, but I think @alexwalker is right that you should expect good weather.

The drought that has got most of eastern and Southern Spain in. its grips may also have an impact on the wild flowers, the crops, and just vegetation generally. This year on the Lana from Alicante, there were way fewer flowers and many fields with total crop failures.

Check out weatherspark.com . If you go by the average year, April is the month which has the most rain and the chance of a rainy day is about 15%. But like everywhere else, normal patterns are changing and the weather has been anything from drenched to dry in the past 5 years. But if it is wet, it can be miserable.

What time did you walk. We are thinking of doing 10 days from Alicante starting mid-March. It seems to be a good time for walking weather although nights are cold.?

I started walking the Lana on May 11 and the weather was great. We did not start in Alicante, but took the train to Villajoyosa and took a “mountain alternative” that was very nice. I have a blog that describes it.

I have always started my southern caminos between late April and early May and have never had too much heat or too much rain. As I’ve mentioned on other threads, the drought, which seems to be continuing in southern and eastern Spain, had a big impact on the wildflower display. We saw very few until Cuenca, and passed through many areas with total crop failures, which was sad.

I am hoping it will be good!! Fingers crossed. I will be walking from Valencia beginning April 12th! From what I can tell, it seems like it should be pleasant. Always a risk of rain though.

Five years later than you, but I'm also planning to walk the Levante/Invierno in February/March. I'll depart from Valencia on the 10th of February. I anticipate a solitary walk. Any elaboration on "if it is wet, it can be miserable"? Any other tips/comments? I'm accustomed to the caminos menos transitados.

Hi Burlington, I too am planning to start the Camino de Levante in April, the 12th to be precise. The potential for rain is certainly there and I expect that there will be some. Fingers crossed, however, for mostly pleasant days. Maybe I will see you along the way!

JLH83: Hi there, and thanks for the note.... I was also thinking of starting earlier in April, but the ticket prices then were already substantially higher than ones a bit later on.... If you are starting 2 weeks ahead of me, I probably won't catch up, but will keep an eye out all the same.... Happy trails....

The weather should be nice in Spring, temperature wise (not too hot and not too cold) with periodic rainfalls.

Currently walking the Levante. Leaving Toboso today. Temps predicted at mid 30s to high 40s F (2-10C) with strong winds out of the west gusting to 30mph. And possible rain. One of those days.

Quite cool temperatures! I'll head out on the Camino de Levante starting April 18th from Valencia. Hopefully the temperature will be a bit warmer by then. Thanks for sharing!
