Getting to Somport

This is my third summer on the Camino, and I would like to start in Somport this time. Problem: I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to get to Somport from Madrid on May 7. Any suggestions? I've looked at Renfe, Alsa, and Continental schedules as a start but haven't been able to put an itinerary together. Thanks to anyone who can help. Nancy

P.S. Same message, just giving it a title this time. I'm getting the hang of this slowly.

Hi nparist,

I did some looking around, and here is one option:

Madrid - Zaragoza
...by train. There are many trains each day, see http://www.renfe.es .

Zaragoza - Canfran (5 km from Somport)
...by either..

- Train (local) :
http://www.renfe.es/regionales/regionales_aragon.html

- by Bus:
http://www.alosa.es/

Canfran - Somport
... 5km walk? Taxi? :?:

Here are the sites I used to sow this together:
http://www.renfe.es
http://www.lesomport.com/ (Click, Como Llegar)
http://www.canfranc.com/ (Click, Como Llegar)
http://www.canfranc.com/accesos.htm

I hope this helps,
Ivar

Train to Canfranc, changing at Zaragoza or Huesca (you can use the high-speed AVE or the stopping train). SNCF bus from Canfranc to Somport; timetable at http://www.ter-sncf.com/Images/pau_canf ... 7-5610.pdf
(you will note they do not connect :-( )

P.S. be prepared for the shock of seeing Canfranc station, one of the wonders of the railway world

now decaying rapidly, I'm afraid

Thanks for the info, Peter. This looks promising.

Ivar, thanks for the information. This looks makes Somport seem much more accessible. Nancy
