    Places to stay in or near Orisson.

    Starting from SJPdP you will pass Albergue Ferme Ithurburia (Hontto) in km 5,3. Thereafter is the gravel path ziczacing steep upwards (worst part indeed). When this gravel part joins tarmac way, there is Gite Kayola in km6,7. Kayola is part of Orisson, but 800 meters before. Beds available, all...

    What to do if there is no bed in Orisson

    In addition to Burda (after Orisson) there are beds in Kayola, about 800 meters before Orisson. Booked via Orisson. Dinner and breakfast is possible in Orisson. One possibility is to walk to Orisson, take a taxi back to S.Jean, take a taxi in the morning to Orisson and carry on. Easy, if you are...

    Frances this year in November

    If you start from SJPdP, Napoleon route is already closed. So via Valcarlos to Roncesvalles or take a bus. Maybe you start from Roncesvalles or maybe Pamplona? Ultreia!

    The Camino does NOT start in StJpdP - discuss

    One map defines the Spain-French Border as start of Camino. I think Camino starts from your home. On Frances you need to start at least from Sarria. Important is to arrive in Santiago de Compostela, not starting point.

    Messed up my timings...

    Orisson itself may be overbooked, but ask for Gite Kayola 800 meters before Orisson. There are just beds, but supper and breakfast are available in Orisson. You can book it from Orisson. Leave the last day open: possible to stay in Pamplona, Madrid or maybe you need it if something happens...

    Orisson or onwards to Roncesvalles

    Orisson is a good choice, but difficult to achieve. It tend to be full all the time. If you cannot get a bed there, call them by phone and ask for Kayola, They have beds there, 800 meters before Orisson. You may have supper and breakfast in Orisson, just after the worst zikzak. Another help...

    is the first day as daunting as it looks?

    I made Napoleon last April. Mule service took my ruck sac to Roncesvalles and I went with light daypack to Orisson and next day to Roncesvalles. Orisson is normally full, but their Koyola might be available. It is just 800 meters from Orisson. This way the first day is very steep but only 7 km...
