Camp Stove


New Member
Hi All,

We're leaving tonight from Paris to Bayonne via a night train. Not sure how we're getting from Bayonne to SJPP - anyone know if there's a train service?

Also, does anyone know if there is anywhere in Bayonne to buy canister fuel for backpacking stoves? I think any propane-based canister should work fine. We have "Jetboil" stoves.

Yup, there are trains to SJPDP.
You can get a train from Bayonne to St Jean de Pied de Port. It is a local train, so you can just buy your tickets at the station and you don't need to book ahead. There is a camping shop in St Jean de Pied de Port that sells epigas type canisters. They very helpful guys where you pick up your credenical told us how to get there (it is in the newer part of town). To be honest, our stove (we took a jet boil too) didn't get much use. The fixed price meals for pilgrims are very cheap, so we didn't end up doing that much cooking for ourselves. We only used it in the morning for making coffee for our pre-dawn starts. However, towards the end, we even gave up on that and just had our morning coffee at the first place that was open when we passed.

just had our morning coffee at the first place that was open when we passed.
Our running joke was the "first place that was open". It often was about the fourth place that COULD have been open, therefore a continuous source of amusement and irritation!
