Every season on the Camino de Santiago is different and autumn time does not disappoint.
For those of you who would prefer to walk in cooler weather, the months of September and October are the perfect time to explore the Camino de Santiago. With clear blue skies and crisp mornings, the Camino is a little less crowded at this time of year, as the August Holiday Pilgrims finish their way and return home.
Did you know that thousands of people flock to northern Spain and Portugal to celebrate and witness the harvesting of the grapes in September and October
Yes, this is wine country. The vineyards along the Camino are heavy with the year´s fruit.
It´s such a wonderful experience to wander through the countryside and watch the farmers harvest the grapes by hand, in the old ways.
Indeed, it´s an added bonus of walking the Camino in autumn time.
And, at the end of the day, you´ll be free to sample the vino of Spain and Portugal, perhaps at a little cafe in a quaint little square at sunset. The golden hour is at strongest at this time of year.
Buen Camino, my friends! Join me and experience autumn on the Camino de Santiago. Let´s wander The Way together and see what magic awaits us. Visit Wild Camino Journey or click the link below for details.
