I just received my copy of Gerard Kelly’s Guide. I think it takes the prize for the lightest guide I have held in my hands. I look forward to referring to it, in tandem with other threads, filled with advice and suggestions from recent Baztan Pilgrims. Thanks in advance, Gerard. Not sure at all, but perhaps this coming August.

Walked this way last September. Enjoyed it, especially after first 15km from Bayonne, it’s not really by the river as mentioned by other posts. But don’t rely on my recall.

A few and hopefully lots more. See signature.
Happy planning and Buen Camino, @kirkie ! The GK guide is good for directions and other information about the route. Gronze is probably your best source of information on accommodation.

Hope this works out for you. Nuala.

Welcome to the merry band of Baztan fans.
The GK guide is most useful plus all the postings and help on the Baztan forum.
Buen Camino

Merci, Mona. My walking companion is up to unit xmillion of duolingo in French, so no doubt she will make excellent sense of your link! I will dig deep into the recesses of my school French and complement with google translate. Quand il faut...on peut decouvrir what seems to have disappeared...
Thank you so much.

This is such a lovely walk, parts on one of those very old roads where if you listen you can almost hear the clatter of hooves and feet and cart wheels.

It's hilly, but not horribly so. San Salvador it's not. And going up to the pass at Belate was special...such gorgeous beech forest.
And way up there, a chapel to remind us that others had come before with like intention....
I took too many pics.

I found the maps.me app invaluable as there were a few times that I was unsure where the route was, especially in France, and I could easily work out a route with the app. Mostly on the camino but especially around Esplette I managed on local walking trails to re-find my way...
