Paris to St. Jean


New Member
Hi everyone. I'm flying from Toronto to Paris in three weeks, and plan to start the Camino in St. Jean a few days later. Any ideas on the best way to get from Paris to St. Jean? I assume it will involve a taxi at some point, but what might be the nearest train station?
3rd Edition. More content, training & pack guides avoid common mistakes, bed bugs etc
High-speed train south to Bayonne or Biarritz.
Train from Biarritz (via Bayonne) to St. Jean Pied de Port ± 1hr50 mins.
No taxi required!!
Buen camino.
I will try to get my answers in this topic then.

We need some help with trains.
Landing on CDG 18august at 11.55 am. We would love to get to St. Jean the same day in the evening. I know, there is few options allowing that, but train changes are a bit tight- that's why I need some advice.

The best option we have found so far is 13.37 train to Bayonne (13.37- 19.48) then change to 19.58 to St. Jean. Help me!
It could be faster for you to fly from Orly to Biarritz and get a train to St Jean from there.
Dep: 14:55 Paris, Orly (ORY) Arr: 16:10 Biarritz (BIQ) - France 01h15mn £ 43

If you choose to go by train, the TGV leaves CDG at 13h37 and arrives in Bayonne at 19h48 Costs From £53.50
LEAVING ON Monday 18/08/08 - JOURNEY TIME 6h,11m
Departure AEROPORT CDG 2TGV - 13:37
Arrival BAYONNE - 19:48
Train TGV Interconnexion

From Bayonne you can get a bus to St Jean. The last bus to St Jean leaves at 21h06 and gets to St Jean at 22h18

Hope this helps.
Thanks Sil! Now we know almost everything. 99% chance that we will go for a train (enviromental freaks).
I don't think, that a bus ticket to st.Jean is online bookable- is it?
Thanks. Kuba.
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.
Hi Kuba - this is a bus timetable.
You leave tomorrow! Happy, happy camino! Please stay in touch and let us know how it goes for you.
Thanks Sil.

I have just received a message from Tim ( and he's saying that 21.06 from Bayonne is a TRAIN. I guess, we will have to wait till tomorrow evening to be absolutelly sure:))
I will try to ask about it on the train from Paris (just hope that someone will speak english).

And we are so excited and happy for that journey. We are both packed under 10kgs (incl.1ltr of water), so it's all good. I will let you know when we get there.
Buen camino to us and hasta luego to you guys;)))
Buen Camino Kuba.
Yes, there is a train at the same time as the bus.
Take it easy the first few days. Tread softly, drink it all in, be kind to all you meet.
Hi Kuba
21h06 is a train from Bayonne, but #4 explain"beginning 25 august"
so: the last train from Bayonne is 19h58 to SJPP 21h11. That means 10 minutes for the Bayonne
connection. Why not...?
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.
Oupss. This one can be tricky.
I hope it will work out well.

See you there!
