The real busy part is from Sarria to Santiago but even at its busiest it is not really that crowded. Try the three Peaks on a summer weekend if you want to see crowds. Start early in the morning if you want to avoid the crowds.

Hi JW, I saw last nights episode and thought, oooh, I fancy that but sorry I know nothing more about it. I walked from Burgos to Finnisterre last September and loved it. I started walking about 7am in the dark because it got hot at 11.30 am and because I liked the solitude. I walked many miles for most days without seeing anybody apart from Sarria to Santiago. The numbers increase and the busagrinos arrive. They were however only mildly irritating as I could always walk faster, slower, stop for a bit, keep going to the next place etc. They didn’t spoil the enjoyment or experience for me.I recommend Santiago to Finnisterre. Fewer pilgrims and you get to the beaches at the end

HI JW the main thing is once you do one Camino you will be addicted. For me I was a first timer and never walked alone so I did Sarria to Santiago 2016 and loved it even with lots of company from people from all over the world (October not so busy but cloudy most days).
I've done the same route with 13 OD folk in July 17 and we loved it..and again last July, like Dale, rising early and setting off sometimes at 6.30 - 7 beating the later starters and heat. The Portuguese Coastal route is awesome from Porto and well signposted. Not so busy.
We're doing the Primitivo from Oviedo to Lugo in June which is quite mountainous.
Always remember on the Camino it's not the end but the journey. CQ🙂
