San Sebastian to SJPdP?

September-October (2016), May-June (2019)
I'm planning a May 2019 pilgrimage from SJPdP to Santiago. I'll be flying into Barcelona, taking a cheap flight to San Sebastian and then making my way to SJPdP. My thinking is to transit from San Sebastian airport to Hendaye, train from Hendaye to Bayonne, stay overnight in Bayonne, and then catch the early train to SJPdP.

I can't quite figure out how to transit from San Sebastian airport to Hendaye. I can take a taxi, but if I wanted to take the Euskotren what station would I use that's close to the San Sebastian airport? Any advice? Thanks.

There is a bus to Bayonne and from there the train to SJPdP.
Wish you well and a Buen Camino , Peter .

It's an easy half-hour train ride, with a change to French trains at the border crossing at Hendaye a short walk across the station there - something about rail gauge I believe. Do stay a bit in San Sebastian, a beautiful little port town with the absolutely best pinchos/tapas in Spain!

The San Sebastian airport is at Fuentarabia close to Irun and hendaye. To go from airport to hendaye train station you have go by taxi only.

The naming of the airport is misleading - it is actually just outside Irun, right on the Spanish/French border and only 3km from Hendaye. The closest Euskotren station is at the southern end of the international bridge and you might as well spend 5 minutes just walking across it!

It's a 5-minute taxi ride from the airport to Hendaye station - no public transport, as Monasp says.

Richard Ray:

I recommend you start in San Sebastian. I took a bus to San Sebastian from Pamplona and just started walking from the bus station.

Ultreya,
Joe

Unless you really want to go to SJPD I'd go with jpflavin1's advice and start walking from San Sebastian and join the CF at Santo Domingo de la Calzada or Burgos. Definitely less traveled routes and a lot of road walking but going through the tunnel is kind of cool.
