St Jean Pied De Port: Travel from Biarritz & Accommodation


New Member
I apologise if this question has been answered elsewhere - have had a good search but would love any advice in regards to my particular queries..
I am arriving into Biarritz airport at 3pm on a weekday next week. From my research, it appears that I take a STAB bus to Bayonne train station (do they still depart every 30 mins from Biarritz Airport?) and then from there, I catch a train to St Jean Pied De Port. Is there any need to prebook the bus or train tickets? Does anyone know the timetable regarding trains from Bayonne to St Jean Pied De Port? I can only find a timetable online for the Summer Season.
I am hoping to arrive in St Jean Pied De Port the same evening as I arrive in Biarritz - is there any need to prebook accomodation? I intend to go straight to the Pilgrim's Office to get advice regarding accomodation but am worried it may be closed by the time I get into St Jean Pied De Port.
Thanking you muchly for any advice you can offer.

Hi lisa,

i am on the cammino right now !!! so i am sorry i cannot give you the full information!! I was told the office in St. Jean Pied de Port is not open late but i would suggest you book an accomodation in St. Jean because you need to be strong enough for a good trip and i have heard that a lot of pilgrims had to sleep in expensive hotels in St. Jean because there was nowhere else cheaper to sleep.

With regards to trains, i do not think you would need to book, however if you got the tickets ready, you always have your mind at rest !!

Buen Camino


I'm trying to check on trains from Biarritz to St Jean but can't seem to do so because I don't know the name of the stations! Could someone tell me what they are plaese? Thanks :D
