Getting from SJPdP

Hi, my daughter and I are hoping to walk the Camino in June/July, starting from Roncesvalles we plan on flying into Biarritz - how do we get from the airport to our starting point? Any ideas/suggestions?

French way (June 2018) with Finisterra. Camino Dragonte being considered en route.
Hi, I'm starting on June 2nd from St Jean and flying into Biarritz. Then getting train from Biarritz to Bayonne and then Bayonne to St Jean. Guess you can get a taxi to Roncesvalles from St Jean. Pre bought tickets online for trains. Check out train strike dates before you book. There are threads on here about the strikes with dates. Check them out.

It is a very pleasant two days walk from St Jean to Roncesvalles via Valcarlos. There is a bus service to Pamplona but not via Roncesvalles as I recall. Unless you have already booked your flights you might want to consider traveling via Madrid. There is an excellent traveling to and from the Camino section on the forum where you will find all the info you need.

At the top of the web page there is a 'Search forums'.
It is a splendid starting point to begin planing your Camino.
I entered 'Biarritz to Roncesvalles' and it showed serveral pages of links.

Here is one:
Be aware that it is from 2014, but still some good information.

Also with a quick google showed this page at the top:

I hope this helps and
Buen Camino to you and your daughter

Le Puy - Burgos, Camino Frances (2012 - 2018)
Bus from the airport (ask at the information desk - it's facing you as you emerge into arrivals) to Bayonne Mairie. (Town Hall) Takes about 25 minutes.
Walk across the river to Bayonne SNCF station.
Train (or replacement bus) to SJPdP.
