      A lot of accommodations close after september, so you are less spoiled for choice but plenty of people do it all year round. Just do more research on where to stay each day, call ahead to check if they are still open etc

      I have done it once. I will do it again. It is, without a doubt, the greatest experience of my life to this point. The hiking itself isn't up to what you might find, for instance, on the long-distance hikes in the US, but the experience as a whole defies comparison. I think it's especially helpful for people who use the time to deal with some personal struggle or another. I hope you do it, anon.

      I took the French Way last time, but my next walk will definitely be on Camino del Norte and Primitivo. San Sebastian is a fantastic city, and I can't wait to see Bilbao, Santander, Gijon, and Oviedo (among the many other small cities, towns, and villages).

    why does this get shilled so much here? I would never have hear of it if not for SighSee, yet there's always at least 1 thread in the catalogue for it. Is it a big thing in America or something? Why can't you just hike somewhere else that isn't the North of Spain?

      It's like the hiker's equivalent of climbing a famous peak. People like challenging themselves and pilgrimages add a spiritual element to it where something is troubling you and you take the route as a healing journey. You get to stay in albergues, walk through old medieval towns that no one really goes to, and collect each stamp while making friends with people doing the same thing. It's a sense of adventure, accomplishment and camaraderie that is lacking in America. It's not too long like the Appalachian Trail and not too short like a regular trek. So it's good if you are kinda autistic/maladjusted and want to meet other depressed lonely souls. I think it's great.

      Perception is a funny thing. It feels almost under-“shilled” here to me, but that’s probably because I engage very heavily with hiking-related social media. Keep in mind also that SighSee is a really tiny board. Two or three regulars who view it as a great experience would be enough to stand out on any part of the board that isn’t specifically about being a digital nomad or sex-tourist to Southeast Asia.

      Pretty much answers your question, but since I’m (one of) the others here who have done it, I’ll also take a stab. It’s a very beginner-friendly long-distance hike in a very beginner-friendly travel destination. The food is good, the social scene is whatever you want it to be (anything from almost entirely solitary to a walking party), and Northern Spain is just wonderful to visit. There’s something in it for anyone who doesn’t hate walking, and, in my experience, most of the people who have done it are pretty outspoken about how much they enjoyed doing it (which magnifies the effect of being on an already small board). It’s very popular with Spaniards, Germans, the French, Italians, and (interestingly) Koreans in addition to Americans.
