Hiking the Camino was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I booked my flight a week prior to the hike and started super unprepared- this made for a beautiful experience. I hiked in November/ December of 2018. it was rainy and cold but ever so breathtaking. Hiking in the fall was a great choice since there are very few pilgrims and albergues always have enough empty bed for the night.Just make sure to bring good rain gear and a warm sleeping bag. I would hike it again any day.
