Both albergues there seemed to have closed. Any ideas where to stay or do we need to push on to Uterga or Puente la Reina? We will be there around September 7, 2021.

Planning for 2021
I walked to Zariquiegui from Trinidad de Arre, then got a taxi back into Pamplona, did some sightseeing etc, took part in the fiesta that was going on with old friends and next morning got a taxi back to Zariquiegui.

Albergue Casa Baztan has availability on berking.con from 1 July. Albergue Camino del Perdon is said to be opening from 1 July. Given the fluidity of current events I would wait until much nearer my travel time before making any commitments.

Uterga is not a great distance from Zariquiegui. Depends of course where you begin! The idea of getting a taxi back to Pamplona is ok, but with sufficient mental energy, and a booking at the albergue on the left in Uterga, with its range of options from bunks in a common dormitory to private rooms, and an option for dinner, strikes me as achievable. I did it very recently, but before Covid, from Pamplona, and it was a delightful day.

Camino Frances 2017
On a cold late April morning in 2017, I stopped in "Z" town for a Café con Leche at the old restaurant adjacent to the Camino. I sat next to the crackling fireplace in the corner until I was warm enough to continue on up to the Alto del Perdón thence down and eventually to the day's destination of Puente la Reina. Owing to its challenging pronunciation, Zariquiegui was affectionately referred to by English speaking pilgrims as simply "Z" town and the reference was instantly understood.

Where are you starting from that morning?

Hopefully sometime....
We wanted to start slow, and it was during San Fermin (the start was right when we were scheduled to arrive in Pamplona) so we did Orisson, Roncesvalles, Zubiri, Zabaldika, Uterga. Some of our friends didn't get a bed in Uterga so they took a taxi to Puenta la Reina. We never saw them again until the night we were leaving Santiago. We thought they were ahead of us. Turns out they stayed in Puenta la Reina a few days and were behind us!

2015-2019 walked all or more than half of CF 7 times... CP recently cancelled by Covid 19!
We are older and the idea of walking 10 miles a day for 50 days is a little scary.
It is good that you walk at your pace and distance everyday. What is easy for some can be difficult for others. Pick the distance you think is right for you. You can adjust daily as you watch the weather, and experience your own bodies. Walk your camino not someone else’s.

CF 2019
In progress: CP 2020 and/or CI
Thanks very much @Marbe2!

Even though I'm quite "young", I'd not have been able to cover the distance Pamplona - Puente la Reina "easy peasy", and I actually didn't in 2019..

And I'm very grateful that I did not to have to read such comments before walking my first Camino then. That would have been very discouraging to me.

@Ptruong
Just walk at your own speed. You'll arrive in SdC. I did, slowly, but it was a great experience.

2020? Looks like.... nowhere! 😁
I have stayed in Zariquiegui before (not a great experience, actually, lots of people with large suitcases, all of us stuck in 2 crowded rooms 😳) and this year it seems all is closed.
So I’m sticking to Pamplona and Puente la Reina. Definitely different this year! But hey! 🙂

I walked to Zariquiegui from Trinidad de Arre, then got a taxi back into Pamplona, did some sightseeing etc, took part in the fiesta that was going on with old friends and next morning got a taxi back to Zariquiegui.
Our first Camino in 2008 hurt a bit as we rushed because of the terrible weather when we commenced in May. The albergue in PLReina was closed under water.
I also believe the first 100 km is when the damage is done.
So Jim the following year , we allowed 45 days and went up market a fraction in certain towns.
We stayed in a lovely hotel 1 km past the worst albergue the year before “L”
The next day we were advised on the river path into Pamplona.
Got there early , dropped off the backpacks and walked to Zariquiegui.
Did as you did , taxi back into Pamplona , big lunch and afternoon , fruit and walk only at night , taxi back to Zariquiegui then slowly down into PLR.
Would repeat if we have another Camino in that area.
