Getting Back to Paris

Camino(s) past & future
Walking Jun 29 - Aug 18, 2018. If we get done early, we'll tour Spain by rail

I am starting to wonder how to get back to Paris for a flight returning to the US on August 24. We have booked an Air BnB for 4 days in Santiago. I was looking on line and don't think we can get a teain all the way back. Flying might be an option. Asking for suggestions. Much appreciated.
Buen Camino

hi Annie, last year, at the suggestion of the (French) Société des Amies de St Jacques, we took a bus from Santiago to Porto, about a 3-hour ride as I recall, and from there flew back to Paris (on Ryanair I think). It worked well.

I saw an evening flight from Santiago to CDG direct for about $100.00. The transport to Santiago airport by bus seems to be about 45 minutes and $10.00. Good luck. Buen Camino!

If one has time and has never been to Porto or wanted to re-visit Porto again, it could be a desirable option :)
Yes, I was going to mention that, too, if she takes a bus from Santiago to Porto first, she will have a hard time dragging herself away from that beautiful city! She needs 2-3 days to "take it all in" before flying back to Paris, IMO.

Book direct with Renfe SdC- Paris via Madrid and Barcelona. Suggest a night in Madrid and aprox 11 hrs from there to Paris with a short change at Barcelona. Great way to see the country, even at 300 kp/h.

Just search a "make-up" date (Tue, July 17) for a coach from SDC to Porto in the ALSA site, www.alsa.com. It shows the prices and schedule. It has one coach leaving at 10:00 in the morning arriving Porto at 13:35. Another one leaving at 17:30 and arriving at 21:05.

Fly. It is an easy 1.5 hr flight.

If you like traveling by train, (I love it :)) you can get a train from SdC to Pamploma and another on to Bordeaux, via Irun/Hendaye, and go from there to Paris. We did this, but broke our journey at Bordeaux, to visit relatives, before travelling on to Paris. (I think the train went all the way to Paris.)

We also stayed overnight in Pamploma ... it was a bonus to have time there, without the need to do our daily Camino washing etc. :)
We did have to get off the train for a very short walk from Irun to Hendaye .... but it wasn’t a big deal.

PS this is the slow train ;) ... not the 300 kph one!
