Hi Peregrinos,

Walking the camino has been a life-changing experience, and I cannot wait to walk another one (after completing the whole Francés in 2016 and Portugués from Porto in 2017). I am now excitedly preparing for my third camino starting from Hondarribia/Fuenterrabia around 24th February in 2020 and (hopefully) getting to Santiago at the end of March. Just checking if anyone else is planning to walk this route in February/March? I have read that the weather can be hit or miss (it is winter, I suppose) and accomodation can be closed, but I have faith it is going to be amazing. I walked the Frances in really bad rainy weather in March/April (perfect walking weather for me) and the Portugues was a bit hot for me, even in September.

If you're going to be on this route around the same time, please let me know and I'll keep an eye out for you. The best bit of the walk is meeting others who all have the same goal to reach the end of the road.

¡Buen Camino!

I recently posted details of a great place to stay in Hendaye. Search on here under Hendaye but do let me know if you need details.

Beware of the strong storms that blow in off the Bay of Biscay that time of year. If you get caught you can always bail out and join the CF.
