Why do the Camino in the spring? Advantages and disadvantages

If you can afford to walk the Camino in the spring, do not hesitate for a second. We are talking about one of the best seasons of the year to travel the French Way, generally with good weather during the day, but without the sun still squeezing, cool nights and without the crowds of pilgrims of the summer. Especially for this last is very likely that your pilgrimage to Santiago is less distorted in spring than in summer, when the Camino becomes an ant run in many of its stages.

If you are wondering when to do the Camino de Santiago, tell yourself that in the spring you are going to walk with very pleasant temperatures as a rule in the whole of the French Way, without the rush to walk with the first rays of light, as in summer, and without The low temperatures of the first months of the year, which require us to carry with us much more equipment above and in the backpack. This is another great advantage of making the Camino de Santiago in spring: we can travel quite light luggage, without the need to wear the same warm clothes as in winter, although we can never miss a raincoat in our backpack, since on Everything in Galicia, in spring we are likely to find frequent rains.

We do not have to be suspicious of the temperatures, even though it is already beginning to make good weather and is that while we walk, while we walk the routes of the Camino de Santiago we can find both temporary and high temperature gusts, so we have to go prepared. We recommend that you go through our tips page on what you have to carry in the backpack to the Camino de Santiago to not leave anything essential before leaving home.

If you come from another place in the world, you should know that spring on the Camino de Santiago begins on March 20 and ends on June 21. If you can choose, it is always better to start the pilgrimage closer to the end of spring than the beginning, since in March we can say that it is still cold on the Camino de Santiago, while in late May and early June, the temperature Is perfect.
