My son and I are starting our camino this week. We hope to be in Pamplona on Saturday. Is it easy to find the bus station and connecting bus to Roncevalles? Thank you

Are you flying into Pamplona? If so, take the bus into town--the information desk can give you the bus number and time schedule (costs a little more than a euro) and take it to where it stops in front of Cortes Ingles (a good place to pick up some food supplies--go downstairs to the grocery). The bus station is the next block over and across the street. It is underground but you will see the taxi pick up area above ground. Very easy.

Another thing about the Pamplona bus station (besides it being underground) is that there are a LOT of bus companies, not just one, operating out of that station. Find the HELP DESK and the lady there can tell you WHICH bus company window to visit to purchase your ticket. She can also give you the schedule. She spoke English when we were there, but the folks at the windows did not, so it's helpful if you have a printed schedule to point to.

Thank you Portia1, silly doll and anniesantiago. You have been a big help and saved me much worry and anxiety about this part of the trip. We will be starting our walking on the 25th from Roncevalles.

Hi all,

Most probably I'll start in Roncesvalles.
From Belgium there are some cheap airfares to Zaragoza from where I can take a quick bus to Pamplona. Only down point is that I'll have to take a flight on a sunday ( only day with an early flight, all others will only get me in Pamplona around seven in the evening ). But on sundays there are no local buses from Pamplona to Roncesvalles.
Question is : obviously there will be taxis at Pamplona airport but will they also be stationed at Pamplona busstation? Should I make a booking beforehand to be sure?
I could of course take a flight on a weekday but this would mean staying one night in Zaragoza and then another night in Roncesvalles which would set me back more than maybe a shared cabdrive?
I know it is still a long time before I leave but the earlier I can make a flight booking the cheaper it will be.
Thanks beforehand.

Hello Sabine, What time do you think you will arrive in Pamplona? We arrived very delayed at Pamplona and just made it to the bus terminal in time for the bus to Roncevalles, only to find it full! We had to take a taxi (no one to share it with) and it cost us 50 or 52 euros. Anyway, yes to answer your question, the taxis are on the street level by the Bus Terminal. Being Sunday and no bus schedule, I bet that there will also many people hanging around trying to share a taxi. Anne

Hi Anna,

Thank you for your swift answer! I looked at the busschedule from Zaragoza to Pamplona and the bus will arrive around 6.15 pm. Those long distance buses are usually quite well on time or so I remembered from the past times I travelled through Spain.
So thanks again : worst case scenario is that I have to take a taxi on my own, but still preferable to staying a night in Zaragoza.
