Hello all

Have just joined the forum. Very excited. We want to arrive in sjpp on Sunday 16th Sept to begin our walk. Does anyone know the best way to get there from San Sebastian?

Thanks

Kate,

I suggest taking the bus from San Sebastian to Hendaye. You get off the bus at the Hendaye train station and buy a ticket all the way to SJPP, I think for something like 12 euros. You'll get off the train in Bayonne for a change of train.

Good luck!

Thanks Mark. Do you have any idea how long it would take via bus from san sebastian to SJPP? Or where to find a timetable (in english). I have heard that there are very few connections on a Sunday - which is when we are travelling?
Is there a train from Hendaye to Bayonne? Lots of questions I'm sorry -but am having trouble finding timetable info on the internet.

Thank you

Kate

Ooh, where is Grant when you need him? Grant, are you out there? Let's help Kate find out the train timetables to Bayonne.

Sorry Kate, when I went to SJPP last year it was a Friday. Yes, traveling on a Sunday can be challenging. What I know is there is a train that starts from Hendaye (it's on the border) that goes to Paris and the rest of France. This train stops at Bayonne where you can change trains to SJPP, but you can buy your ticket at Hendaye (last year it was 13.5 euros all the way). The train to SJPP leaves Bayonne around 1230-1 pm if I remember correctly.

Hendaye to SJPP around 3.5 hrs including the waiting in Bayonne. I suggest planning to arrive in Hendaye at around 9 AM.

Try a search for SNCF timetables. I hope this helps.

Thank you everyone - will just get to Hendaye early on the Sunday morning - there has to be a train at some stage!!

See you on the road

Hi Kate! Yes there is a train at Hendaye. It's better to pick it up in France as opposed to San Sebastian, so you won't have to wait at the French/Spanish border for a French train to come along & pick you up. :) The buses are fine in Spain, so don't worry!
