Spain- Pamplona to Saint Jean Pied de Port

Jump to last reply

Hi, We are narrowing down our itinerary for Spain and have decided that hiking the Pyrenees is a must for our family.
We are 6 in total and looking to hike from St.Jean Pied de Port to Roncesvalles. The big concern is that there is only one bus from Pamplona to St. Jean Pied leaving at 10 am. We might not actually start hiking until 1 pm as our kids are between 10-20 years old.
One averages about 3 km an hour so seeing that it is about 23 km, we would need at least 7-8 hours of solid hiking. I understand that there is Valcarlos where we could stop and spend the night so that is a possiblity but we are keen on doing the Napoleon Route. And there is also the refugio Orisson but I am unclear after what km you hit the Orisson.?
So if anyone has some insight that would be great.
Or could anyone recommend a driver that could take us to the border early from Pamplona i.e. 8 am and then pick us up from Roncesvalles when we are done? Or an agency that is reasonable that could take us to the border.

Thank you for any suggestions or input.
