There is only one month left to end spring and start summer, do you know that this is one of the best times to do the Camino de Santiago? Although all times of the year are a good option to become a true pilgrim, today at Hotel Scala we tell you 5 reasons to do the Camino de Santiago in spring.
The best temperature to enjoy the road
Spring is one of the best options to do the Camino if you don't want big hot flashes or cold waves. If you travel to the Galician capital from the month of April, although the nights are cool, the temperatures during the day are very pleasant.
Threaded with the above, we can also talk about luggage, because when making the journey in a time of better temperatures, you will not need as many warm clothes. Therefore, carrying your backpack will not be as heavy as in the coldest months of the year.
Lower occupancy than in summer
Summer is one of the favorite months for many to do the Camino, therefore, it is at this time when the hostels have a greater occupation. If you don't want to be in a hurry with accommodation, you can take the opportunity to do the Camino in spring, you will notice the difference.
Enjoy more of the gastronomic part of the Camino
Not only for hostels, but by doing the Camino outside of high season, you will be able to enjoy a greater offer of Galician gastronomy, as it will be easier to find a table in the most typical places on the Camino. In fact, if you do the Camino Portugues, you cannot miss a visit to our new Brandal Restaurant, located in a room of the Hotel Scala. Plan it in time to make your reservation!
The atmosphere will get better
In addition, at this time the Galician verbenas and festivals also begin throughout the towns through which the Camino passes. For example, from May 25 to 29 in Santiago de Compostela you can enjoy the Ascension festivities, and in June O Son do Camiño.
Although in this post we focus on doing the Camino this spring, the truth is that regardless of the time you choose to walk to Santiago, this will be a fascinating experience. Book your night at the Hotel Scala for this spring and make your stop in Padrón, the last breath before reaching the impressive Cathedral.
