Hi all,
can anybody shed some information on travel from Carcassonne to SJPDP on 6th August. This is now looking like my revised departure date as I want to be completed by mid September.
Ryanair fly from Cork to Carcassonne, Cork is more convenient to me than Shannon but I am afraid that I may find it difficult and expensive to travel to SJPDP from Carcassonne. All help would be welcome.

Regards
John

This is along the Chemin du Piemont Pyrneen route that actually starts at Narbonne on the Mediterranean.

There are a number of guide books for this route but I bought this one (in French)



Your stages could be:
Carcassonne 22,0
Montréal 18,4
Fanjeaux 24,0
Mirepoix 27,0
Varilhes ou Pamiers 27,3
Le Mas-d'Azil 26,3
Saint-Lizier/Saint-Girons 16,0
Castillon-en-Couserans ou Argein 30,0
Juzet-d'Izaut 25,7

The other option is to turn South at Oloron Ste Marie and walk the Aragones route over the Somport Pass to Puente La Reina.
