From SJPDP to Roncesvalles by bus/taxi/ ... ?

I'm still evaluating whether or not to cross the Pyrenees on the first day (because of my recent foot problem) ... I don't want to risk ruining my whole Camino experience on the first day.

But since I'll be staying in SJ anyway, what ways are there to get from SJ to Roncesvalles? Is there a bus line? Do taxis drive you there? At what price? Any other advice?

Thanks a lot :)

hi no bus that goes there BUT if your like 40-50 ppl you cant rent a bus!!

taxi is about 40euros from stjpdp-Roncesvalles
just ask the guy at trainstation in st-jean to you a taxi!

you should walk it take an extra day worth the walk!!

look at this video on youtube:

Hi, I'm going along well actually. The physio did help and I also got new shoe lifts.

In your place I'd try to walk from St.Jean, even if you need 8-9 hours, just walk at your rythm, have a rest regularly and enjoy the time. I know many people who'd like to walk the Camino, but can't do it for different reasons (health, age, physical problems...)
You are in good condition and ready to start, so do it, you won't regret your decision.
I wish you good luck and a buen Camino !

Jerome,

Caroline Aphessetche runs a taxi service out of St. Jean P deP and we have arranged a lift with her to Roncesvalles. It's 10 euros per person, with a minimum of 3 passengers, so if you go solo, it will be 30 euros.

We contacted her at:

apcaroline@hotmail.com

Thanks again everyone. But I'll definitely have to skip the Pyrenees this time and I will start in Roncesvalles. I'm trying to arrange sth with Caroline.

Because not only did I have this foot problem recently, I've also got a Gastroenteritis yesterday evening and had to severely vomit several times during the night ... And I've not eaten anything since then. I got some pharmaceuticals right now and it seems to get better again ... And I'm confident I'll be fit again for Thursday when the plane is leaving.

But I've really got a great timing for these things!!! ;) :?
