Time of past OR future Camino
May 2 Camino del Norte
Hello folks - we're arriving at Bilbao airport 7:15 pm May 3. We'd like to begin walking the next day from Irun. Would appreciate any suggestions re transportation and timing and accommodations. Seems necessary to spend the night in Bilbao?
 
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.

Last bus from Bilbao Intermodal station to Irun leaves at 8.10 pm and arrives at 10 pm.
Getting from airport to Intermodal takes 40 min by bus and more or less 15 minutes by taxi.
Bilbao airport is not that big and if you have only handluggage it might be doable. Otherwise spend a night in Bilbao, there are worse cities to stay!

Right - thanks! Likely stay in Bilbao after flying Hfx-Paris...sounds good. Then bus to Irun. Any recommendations how to find private accommodations in Bilbao with good food/coffee nearby?

Ibis City Budget is quite reasonable. Of course it is part of a chain but it is clean, decent and close to the busstation ( less than 1 k ).

Food and coffee plenty nearby.

Prepare for your next Camino on California's Santa Catalina Island, Oct 27 to Nov 2
If you have time, take a walk around Bilbao - it's a nice place with wide walkways along the river where you can't miss the Guggenheim museum and the far lesser known, but very interesting, maritime museum further along. Some good restaurants and bars too.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
a night and a day or two - a gorgeous city - the Guggenheim is an international destination!
Totally...my daughter will be hiking with me til Bilbao and it is something we are looking forward to!

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.
