Excuse the boring question - travel from Biarritz to Pamplona

Howdy pilgrims... Just a quick one.
I land at Biarritz on a Thursday afternoon.. 4ish... I'm looking at starting (CF) in Pamplona.. for no particular reason other than I don't fancy sjpdp-Roncesvalles again.. once was enough. I've tried rome2rio etc but I'm struggling with how to get there.. I don't mind a night in a hotel along the way but I still can't find a decent route...
I guess if it's easier to get to somewhere else I could happily start there.. even Roncesvalles I guess... Maybe I'm having a 'wood for the trees' moment and there's a straightforward solution but it eludes me..
Any ideas?

It appears that there's a stop in San Sebastian... I guess I could possibly split the journey there for the night?? I seem to remember that it's on the Norte (I may have imagined this).. if so there must be albergues there..

Or you can walk! There are basically two trails between Biarritz and Pamplona - if you have time and good weather, I’d highly suggest this option.

I´ve got Camino plans until 2042,
- or till I fall flat on my face, whichever comes first !!
I should think better pinxtos should weigh in the balance.

If you have the time I would recommend stopping in San Sebastian. It is a really pretty city. Spending an afternoon or evening strolling the streets and the views of the ocean isn't half bad. There are some nice hostels I stayed in a place called A Room In The City and it was really nice and clean for about 25US. Very centrally located also. There is also the best Ice Cream shop in all the world called Gelateria Boulevard. It is not to be missed. I was in San Sebastian for 2 days before went to Irun to start the Norte 2 years ago and went there 4 times. Went again when I stayed in San Sebastian after I started in Irun! Yes I know I am a an Ice Cream addict but you only live once!!!! You can be in Pamplona in about 90 minutes. Buen Camino.

It seemed straight forward to me, 2 years ago when I went from Biaritz to SJPP and spent a little time reminiscing and then walked down to the ALSA bus stop and got on the bus to Pamplona where I started

I once caught a direct bus to Pamplona from Irun. The buses depart from next to the train station.

Shouldn’t be too hard to catch a bus or train from Biarritz to Hendaye, from which you either catch another bus or train to Irun or you stretch your legs with a 15-20 minute walk.

Hello Andy,
I don't know anything about Biarittz airport.

However, from Biarittz train station I think there is a TER type train to Hendaye station. Then 3 min walk to another train staion for a train on different guage. This is the wee Basque train to San Sebastian (Donostia, and check which of the Donostia stations to alight at). Then you walk 15 min or so to Bus Station for bus to Pamplona, which takes an hour or so. I think each of these train journeys were about 30 mins or so, and can't be booked.
I have done this twice now with no problem. You have to buy bus ticket at kiosk before you approach bus.

BUT San Sebastian is a lovely place to stay and then you would see the scenery on the way to Pamplona next day.
Buen Camino
Ena
