My wife and I will likely be starting on March 9th from Sevilla We would consider later in the week just to have company on the first few days. Heard of possible instances of theft In Andalucia and think that company would be wise. Not terribly worried since most people I know doing the La Plata have not had any problems.

Planning to depart Seville on March 28th heading to SdC via Astorga. In Astorga I'm hoping to join my wife Margaret who is walking the CF as her first Camino! Coordinating our rendezvous may be a bit of a challenge but will be so worthwhile to share the last part through Galicia. Looking forward to meeting fellow pelegrinos on the VdlP!

Dear Elisabeth,

Robos statement is valid mainly on the CF and mainly on the last 100 km. The VdP is different.

I walked the last Stretch of the VdP (Camino Sanabrés) in late May/June 2010 and did never have any problems to find a bed, not even in small places like Lubian, even though my parents who joined me then were not really "early birds" and rarely managed to start before 8 o'clock in the morning.

I would try to avoid peak season (March/April) which is already crowded in "normal years" and not worry too much.

Is March/April the 'peak' for VdlP?
Darn, I was planning March.
May/June would be fairly hot I imagine.

Is March/April the 'peak' for VdlP?
From what I have heard - yes. In September, I had a chat with the hospitalera at the Rehoboth albergue in Vilar Farfon. She described a Spring peak for pilgrims who followed VDLP from the south (timing depends Easter dates) then a drop off in mid-summer and a smaller peak in the fall.

With regard to the increase in pilgrim numbers during Holy Year - predictions are difficult, especially about the future, but I would expect a pretty hefty surge from Ourense onward. I think Galicia has been promoting Ourense as an alternative 100km starting point to Sarria. I hope the towns and villages on that last stretch have good plans in place to absorb additional pilgrim traffic.

Ellen, I get into Seville on 24th and intend starting on 26th, stopping at Italica then walking onto to Guillena the first day.

I think I will stay at Triana backpackers in Seville as it has good comments by other members on the forum, how about you?

I have just booked my ticket from Toronto, Canada and plan to start the walk from SJPP around the 10th or 11th of April. I arrive in Paris on April 8 and have not yet booked my train ticket. My plan is to walk the entire route in 5 to 6 weeks. I have allowed some extra time as I like to stay a few days in some places. This will be my first camino although I did complete the Inca Trail in 2015. I am doing the walk alone and hoping to find lots of great information on this blog.
HI pilgrim! I think your post belongs more in the Camino Frances threads, as one of the common start points of the Camino Frances is SJPP. Which is actually not even on the Camino Via de la Plata! I hope you have a wonderful walk!
Moderators, can you consider moving this bit over? Thanks!

Hi cher
Great time for Mérida as 2020 Holy Week starts April 5
Not sure if your finish there in spring 2017 was during the Semana Santa but I was in Mérida last year (2019 ) during that period and stopped for 2 nights. As you know there is so much to see there anytime but the night processions during Semana Santa are wonderful.
Buen camino.

Hi Annie,

Coincidentally, I did arrive in Merida in 2017 at the beginning of Semana Santa. (April 2) All the way from Seville there were store windows decorated for the celebration. I just stayed in Merida until the 4th, so will be arriving in 2020 about the same time.

Buen Camino

Hi & welcome
Weather forecasting is just that. I hope it’s a perfect time for you in 2020.
Just keep in mind that although you’ll be in Seville in early May ..... time moves as you walk.
It will be hotter through Extremadura I’d ‘assume ‘, and further as you walk into later may. ..

Hi @ritaj
I hope ‘if’ becomes a definite ‘going ‘. What day in March would you expect to start walking from Rio Negro?
I’ll be around there approximately 22nd March ‘give or take ‘.

From Pamplona to Burgos in 2012, SJPP - Finisterre in 2013, planning another for 2014 and every year after!
I'm planning on going sometime in March - starting in Seville and going all the way through to Santiago via Astorga. It's not my first Camino, but it is my first VdlP. I'm trying to juggle 2 weeks of language classes in Malage beforehand, but I'm worried about how much time I'll have!

You’ll love it. Although the intention to spend 2 weeks at spanish classes sounds good . Unless you have enough time or intend to do the Vdlp in sections ; I’d suggest it would be less stress to just start walking. You could still visit Malaga first but head out sooner. Try to practice as you walk though. (Unless you’re a wizz kid you won’t end up fluent in 2 weeks ) - on the road chatting to locals can be really helpful for your language learning.
Buen camino

Hi @ritaj
I hope ‘if’ becomes a definite ‘going ‘. What day in March would you expect to start walking from Rio Negro?
I’ll be around there approximately 22nd March ‘give or take ‘.
Annie
So sad that we will be behind you. We just made reservations for April 1 to fly from Boston to Madrid, then take a bus to Benevente and hopefully get there in time to get a bus to Rio Negro. If anyone has a better way of doing this we'd love to hear about it.

So I guess we'll start walking around April 3 (or 4th if we don't make the two buses in time).

Sounds like a good time to walk Ritaj.
Just a thought though ; have you looked at the app: rome2rio.com
It’s a good place to find ways to get anywhere and indicates whether buses or trains are available.

You may be a bit more savvy than me and already have access to timetables but when I check buses from Benavente to Rionegro Del puente on this app ., it’s telling me that bus only runs once a week.

For my reconnecting to start, I’m going to get a bus from Madrid to Zamora , then another bus from Zamora to Tábara.. May even sleep at Zamora and take it easy.

Maybe someone else can give you the correct info but best to check. You always have the option of cabs and not too expensive over the short distances.

Buen camino
Annie

Some, and with luck, some more.
I’m not too concerned with cheapness, but I don’t See anyplace called Primark.
Hello frida1,

You won't find a place called Primark. You are the victim of humour.

In your message you said 'Zara' instead of Zafra. Zara is a clothes shop business here in the UK. Primark is also a clothes shop, but much less expensive than Zara.

Hope that helps.

Buen (mythical place-finding)Camino

I started the Plata from Sevilla on Monday. Great warm weather the first 2 days. Today misty and cool, perfect for the climbs through the national parks.

Hi, Im about to make bookings to start Via de la Plata in early April and would like to know if many others are leaving Sevilla around that time , always useful to know that fellow pilgrims are about in time of need.
