Camino de Santiago - advice please.

Jump to last reply

We’re considering walking the Camino de Santiago next year, 2014, most likely starting in St Jean Pied de Port - so the first day is a strenuous 30km, with about 1000 metres to climb!

Total distance about 750 km or thereabouts, and we would see ourselves taking about 30 or 35 days to cover that distance. The planning is still in its infancy, and I’d be keen to know how other walkers have fared on the route. Some questions that I have are:

What time of year did you walk the Camino.
What sort of distances were you comfortable doing each day.
Typical costs, leaving aside the cost of getting to the start and home from the end.
Did you walk the whole route, or take a bus over some of the toughest parts.
Comments on where you stayed – hotels, refuges, whatever.
Did you take a sleeping bag?

And so on.
