Travel from Sanitago de Compostela to French Border

Jump to last reply

I would like help deciding the best route by PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION from Spain to French Border. I have been working on itinerary but so far nothing booked for early September . I want to make one or two stops enroute to be able to walk short distances on Camino just to enjoy the experience and then continue by train or bus making overnight stop(s).

If I leave Santiago for overnight in Astorga near Leon; continue to Burgos for brief stop, and then to Pamplona, is this a scenic route and good choice? Is San Sebastian closest point for connection with French trains? MIght like to to spend some hours at St. John deLuz if I have enough time, continuing for overnight in Lourdes. I would like to book train for bus tickets online but so far not sure if my plan is best choice.
Have traveled on SNCF many times but not sure if that service runs from Spain or if I can order multiple tickets on Renfe online?
Is it possible to buy a multiride rail or bus ticket that might cover all or most of above travel?
If there is a late evening bus or train covering part of this journey I might avail of that service to save time.

If the above is not best route, I might travel along coastal route and if so, need some help deciding overnight stop(s). Looking forward to receiving some assistance. Thank you.
