Hello everyone!
Has anyone gone this way like this: st. Jean Pied de Port- Helette- Espelette- Biaritz? Because both have a municipal gite and look closer to Biaritz. Is it soomething of good idea?
Muchas Gracias!
Buen Camino!

addicted since 1999 (Aragones, CF), lots of caminos in Spain and Portugal since then
If these trails are correct https://hiking.waymarkedtrails.org/#?map=12!43.3098!-1.3825
VN (Voie de la Nive) does not connect with Camino Baztan in or near Espelette.
You can stay in Ustaritz on either route.
At the first glance there is no nice walk into Biarritz, but at least walking between motorway A63 and airport gives you a good chance not to get lost (leave the trail with Chemin de Compagnet).

Just walked that route (did not detour through Espelette, but a side-path goes there. My posts are one of the links above.

Gronze.com lists the Helette contact under the BATZAN route. You pick up the keys as it’s an unstaffed building, so arranging in advance is pretty much required. Espelette has a cheap municipal, though it’s had bedbug issues annually.

Overall, it’s an incredible walk and I highly recommend it! PM me if you want more info

Excuse me!
I studied all the Gronze, but did not find a page where I joined Helette with Camino Batzan. As well as Wikyloc do not find any stage of the Voi de la Nive, except Bayona- Ustaritz.
Maybe someone can give GPS from Voi de la Nive?
