We'll confess, this isn't the most useful weather chart we've ever shared. Summarising over 800 kilometres of northern Spain in one go is impossible, so expect the weather to be as varied as the landscapes through which you pass. These stats are from the border of León and Galicia, though you may find our 'When to Walk' article more informative.
