Hi Karen
How long did it take you to reach Borda?
It Only took maybe 3 to 4 hours. It’s a steep climb out of St Jean. It all depends on your speed. I stopped to take quite a few pictures. I also stopped at Orisson for a bite to eat and arrived in Borda before they opened. They had benches we sat on and waited until they opened. It’s a beautiful place! We booked the only private room they have. The rest of the space they have is for single beds in the dormitory type setting.
I recommend you have a late start and spend time/have lunch at Orisson so you don’t arrive too early. You will be able to eat dinner and breakfast in Borda. I highly recommend a stop here. I’m so glad we did not try to get all the way to Roncesvalle in one day. The people we met there were awesome.
Enjoy!

Just tried about 10 different dates for Borda in 2024. Nothing available.
First, I tried in early April, but then I just started clicking on random dates throughout the year and there was never any availability. Oh well.....

You could try emailing or calling them. It might be a technical problem with the website or the booking application.
 
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
You booked online, or did you have to phone? Do they speak English?
You can book on their site, though they only have 12 or so beds, so they get booked up quickly!


BTW, I see that you are in Oregon. I'm down in Medford.
