We are planning to walk Camino del Norte this year, 2022, from Irun. We are trying to decide whether to start Aug. 15 or the beginning of Sept. Any thoughts, considerations, or suggestions to help us decide? Many thanks!

Without a doubt the later you start the better. Less vacationers and with this summer's heat the later you start the better. If you can go even September 15th that would be great. I walked starting in mid October. Never had bad heat and problems with albergues. Things got colder as I turned southwest but never really bad. But who knows about weather. If my memory serves me correctly the early weeks have a great deal of open area to walk without shade, especially if you check out all the great variants you can walk to keep you on the coast.

Thanks for asking this question, as I've been getting a bit more concerned about the heat. The other responses reinforce my need to be especially prepared for that first week. I arranged to start on Aug 30; it felt like the earliest possible date given heat, tourists and pilgrims.

Buen camino - and perhaps we'll run into each other!

I did the Norte in September and it was great. August is too busy when Europeans take their vacations. Buen Camino. I loved the Norte.
