We’re skilled hikers and stroll loads within the mountains with a lot heavier backpacks, earlier than our first Camino we thought it was tremendous straightforward to stroll from albergue to albergue with a light-weight backpack, carrying solely garments, with many eating places, and occasional outlets on the way in which.

After the primary week on the Portuguese Camino our ft have been destroyed, we each had large blisters, principally, our ft have been only one huge blister! All as a result of we didn’t have correct climbing sneakers and determined to stroll lengthy distances.

The Camino de Santiago is just not your regular hike within the wild the place you’ve got to hold tenting gear and meals which is an efficient factor because it’s potential to pack mild. Each night time pilgrims keep at albergues, no tent and tenting mat is required, all you want or we’d advocate bringing with is a sleeping bag. In our expertise the 2 most vital issues to have on the Camino are a snug backpack and a pair of excellent climbing sneakers – these two you’ll use on daily basis and if even considered one of them doesn’t match properly or is uncomfortable it could possibly utterly spoil your Camino.

Paperwork to take with you on the Camino

A passport or an ID for European residents – you’ll want it for checking in to albergues and accommodations.

The Credential (Camino passport), a small paper e-book together with your identify the place you accumulate stamps from albergues, accommodations, church buildings, eating places, and so on. alongside the way in which.

You want the Credential to remain at public albergues (the place solely pilgrims are allowed to remain) and to get your Compostela in Santiago.

Camino de Santiago important gear

Backpack

I walked with a 36-40L backpack it was greater than sufficient particularly should you’re not planning on carrying a laptop computer as I did. Campbell walked with a 50L backpack however could be completely wonderful with a 40L pack. Keep in mind, the larger backpack you get the extra pointless stuff you’ll slot in. For those who stroll in summer season you will get away with a smaller 30-35L backpack.

For climbing in winter or late fall/early spring if you want hotter garments a 40-45L backpack for women and men will likely be large enough. Make certain your backpack has a rain cowl or purchase a separate one it’s at all times nice to have it particularly should you stroll low season.

On the Camino routes, there are a number of corporations that supply a door-to-door baggage supply service. Correos, Camino Facil, and Pilbeo are the three important corporations that supply baggage transfers on totally different Camino de Santiago routes. It really works very simply; you allow your backpack within the morning on the reception of your albergue/resort they choose it up and drive to your subsequent lodging place. The service prices 5-7 Euro per backpack per stage.

For those who’re planning to make use of this service on the Camino you may convey a giant backpack or perhaps a suitcase and stroll with a day pack carrying solely valuables, water, and snacks. Make certain your daypack is snug for lengthy strolling and has padded straps, and pickets to suit a water bottle. Osprey Talon 22 Males’s Mountain climbing Backpack and even smaller Osprey Daylite 13L Daypack are nice choices for a day pack.

Mountain climbing sneakers

Don’t underestimate the significance of packing a superb pair of sneakers for the Camino. Ultimately, you’ll spend more often than not strolling in them. We’d advocate strolling the Camino, particularly should you’re planning to stroll a protracted distance, in correct sneakers not in sneakers – they (or your ft) simply received’t make it. We tried on the Portuguese Camino to stroll in our trainers. They have been very snug at first however after a few days of strolling on cobblestones and laborious surfaces, our ft have been destroyed.

For extremely popular climate climbing sandals generally is a good different to boots. Trendy climbing sneakers often have good air flow however typically it simply will get too sizzling and it’s good to placed on sandals for some time.

For those who purchase a brand new pair put on them earlier than you begin the pilgrimage even excellent new sneakers may trigger blisters. For those who’re planning on doing some Camino coaching the very best is to coach in the identical sneakers you’re going to stroll in.

Advised strolling sneakers for ladies

The final 5 Camino routes and a few climbing routes in Nepal I walked in Salomon Ellipse 2. They’re snug and lightweight. Precisely what I wished was a pair of sneakers that may be worn for each strolling the Camino and climbing within the mountains. My ft received moist a few occasions after we received pouring rain with sturdy wind on the Northern Camino and the Camino Finisterre.  It occurred partly as a result of I wasn’t carrying gaiters the water from my pants ran down into the sneakers. I didn’t get any blisters though the sneakers have been new and I hadn’t worn them earlier than. This mannequin is a bit slender in case you have huge ft they may be too tight. 

For strolling the Camino within the winter when it rains loads and on some routes, you may even get snow I can advocate Salomon X Extremely 3 GTX boots. These sneakers are wonderful for tougher climbing routes and strolling in unhealthy climate situations. I’ve finished Everest Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Base Camp trek in them and for hours walked in deep snow and my ft stayed heat and dry.

In our expertise, most albergues present blankets however often, with out covers, I want to make use of my very own sleeping bag, and if it’s actually chilly I take advantage of a blanket over it. A lightweight sleeping bag with a consolation temperature restrict of +12°C/55°F will likely be ok.

For those who stroll the Camino in summer season (July, August) when it will get fairly sizzling, as a substitute of a sleeping bag you may pack a silk liner. We walked a few Caminos in June and typically it was too sizzling at night time for utilizing a sleeping bag. For those who get chilly you may at all times use a blanket over your liner. 

For those who’re not planning to remain at accommodations (personal rooms) as a substitute of albergues you don’t want to hold a sleeping bag, all accommodations and guesthouses present blankets and bedding.

Trekking poles

We used trekking poles loads after we have been trekking within the Andes or climbing to Everest Base Camp. For strolling the Camino we don’t take poles however I do know many pilgrims use them. Trekking poles are nice in case you have knee or hip issues, shin splint, and so on. They assist loads to cut back stress on joints. For some Caminos with many ascents and descents e.g. the Camino Primitivo or some components of the French Camino (strolling over the Pyrenees), the poles will likely be very useful.

I didn’t drink faucet water within the Meseta a part of the Camino Frances as I’d heard from different pilgrims that that they had abdomen issues there from ingesting faucet water. When you’ve got a delicate abdomen, pack a water filter for the Camino.

Headlamp

Having a headlamp on the Camino is kind of helpful. In albergues lights are often turned off fairly early if you wish to learn or discover one thing in your backpack you need to use a lamp. Within the morning if you wish to go away early whereas others are nonetheless asleep it’s fairly useful as properly. You should utilize your telephone as properly but it surely’s extra snug to put on a lamp than to stroll or pack holding a telephone in your hand.
