If you’re looking for the authentic pilgrim experience on the Camino, you’ll probably spend most of your nights in an albergue. But while there’s a lot to love about albergues, many of them don’t have heating and they can become cold during the night. Because of this, it’s common for pilgrims to pack a sleeping bag for the sake of consistently getting a good night’s sleep.
The problem with a sleeping bag though is they can be one of the heavier things in your pack, which might lead you to wonder:
Do you actually need a sleeping bag?
Or can you survive without one?
