Camino de Santiago de Compostela

Jump to last reply

I am considering a pilgrimage along the Camino Frances from St. Jean de Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela. Apparently, it is an old and well traveled path with plenty of amenities along the way.

As the trek is 500 miles, I do accept that I will have to look to achieving 20 miles or so a day to complete in 30 days or so but I am still most concerned about the time to do this.

My plan is to camp out and tent it as much as possible, which means carrying an extra change of shirt, socks and underwear, not terrible and use a refugio perhaps once every 3 or 4 nights, getting a good washing and laundry done at the same time.

I found a very good article about the Camino, i think it was called Tips on the Path to Saint James, but it dd not get into best times to go as, I suppose, everyone has their own parameters for that.

My preferences are to enjoy the path first and foremost, meet people but not to many, and do so in a temperate clime, not too hot, not too cold.

Has anyone done this pilgrimage in March / April / May or September / October / November and when would be my Best time to go?
