Advice on getting from Pamplona to St. Jean Pied de Port

Camino Frances Planned September 2022
Hi there! I am flying into Pamplona on Wednesday and wondering how to get to SJPP. I see one bus that runs daily at noon, but my flight lands at 1pm. I am hoping to not have to pay for a taxi the whole way (if anyone else is arriving on Wednesday, August 31 maybe we can split a ride?) and am wondering if people have found other ways to get to SJPP when the bus from Pamplona is not an option. Thanks!!

Other options if you don't have a reservation in SJPDP, stay over a night in Pamplona? Catch the bus the next day or just start walking your Camino from Pamplona? You may see other pilgrims on your flight and could share a ride with them.

I had the same question as I arrive in Pamplona by train on 9/5 at 6:30PM. From my research, that 1 bus and taxis are just about our only options. Since I arrive so late, I decided to stay in Pamplona rather than SJPP for the 1st night. That way I'll have a better chance finding someone to share a taxi in the morning or take the bus as a last resort at noon.

Hi! I arrived at 1pm this year at Pamplona aswell. I found several pilgrims waiting at the taxi stand, enough to fill two taxis. In the end I was a lot more comfortable than the bus and I spend about the same.

I would even suggest to start walking that same day to Orrison or Borda to split the first day in half. Unless you want to do some sightseeing in SJPP, which I also recommend haha

Yes exactly. I started mine in Pamplona the year of 2018. This year I plan on going to St Jean, God willing. Buen Camino

Sorry to jump on your post zoe.smith994 but I am travelling from Pamplona Sat Sept 3rd to SJPDP and I have sent a reservation request to Teletaxi Sam Fermin, received a pending notice so far and that’s it, has anyone done this and how did you know which taxi was yours? I put in my reservation that I will be at the station. Will I receive a final booking. I have emailed them without any reply. Thank you for any help.

The logistics of the bus to SJdPP from Pamplona and the need to waste a day in order to get that bus made us decide to just start walking from Pamplona. We never regretted it.
