Frequently Asked Questions
The best seasoan to do the trek to Santiago de Compostela is in Spring, form May to June. During these months the weather starts to get better and there are not that many trekkers in the hotels along the way. September is also a good month to do it, but the weather can be quite unpredictable, unlike during Summer. Only 4% of the trekkers choose to do the trail in winter (October to April) because of the cold, rain, and even snow.
This trek is an easy one, children and old people complete the trail, and you probably won’t have problems. However, you will be trekking many days, so it is better if you get ready for it. Try walking a few hours a day the weeks before your trekking and try wearing the same shoes you will be wearing during the trek, that way you prevent getting blisters or hurting your feet. Another good idea is to walk with a backpack on your shoulders so that your back gets used to the weight.
Where does the Camino begin and end?
All trails lead to the same destination: Santiago de Compostela. Where they begin? Well, that is a harder question. When the remains of Santiago the apostle were found, people from all over the continent travelled to see them. Truth be told, there were many trails that the people at that time used, based on where they came from. So the answer to where the trail begins has no single answer. The most common one and world famous, is the one coming from France, but there are some also from Portugal and Spain itself. Which one to choose? Well, that is up to you.
