St Jean to Roncesvalles late September

Camino de Santiago (2016/October & 2018/September)

I have done the Sarria to Santiago route (twice!) and thought I would try the St Jean to Estella part this year. I plan to fly out on the 21st of September and start the hike then.

What do I need to pack in terms of clothing? The standard hiking trousers, top, fleece and waterproof? Or will it be colder?

Many thanks!

It won't be colder until November. Standard summer clothing will be fine.

I've started from SJPdP mid-Sept (13th) and will be starting there late Sept (28th) this year. I am taking the same gear I took last time. Prepare for a wide range of temps while factoring in your personal comfort level (if you run hot/cold). Mornings can be cool while days can be warm (though not hot).

Just wear normal summer clothes with a fleece and a poncho that can cover your pack and you will be fine. It will not be cold and the way things have been going be very hot. I walked twice during that time period all the way to SDC and didn't even have a sleeping bag just a silk liner.
