You can set off any time of the year but, in terms of weather, the most suitable months are May, June, September and October.
It is also possible to set off during the summer months, i.e. July and August, but to avoid the heat peaks and afternoon storms you will need to get up early in the morning, so that you arrive at your destination around 1 p.m.
Days are shorter the rest of the year, so this time is more suitable for experienced and physically fit pilgrims who can cope better with bad weather, demanding terrain and heavier backpacks. Do not forget that not all accommodation facilities are open all year round.
