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!

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.
