I am considering a shorter walking day and am thinking of stopping in Uterga, there only seem to be 2 accommodation options. has anyone stayed in Uterga and if so would you recommend it
 
Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

When the albergues were closed in Zaraquigui just on the other side of the Alto del Perdon, I remember a lot of people stopping in Uterga.
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.

I've stayed twice at Albergue Camino del Perdon and highly recommend it.
 
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
I stayed at Casa Baztan last year and had a good experience. I had the pilgrim’s dinner there and had lunch across the street at Camino del Perdon and both were good.
 
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.

After Uterga, you might want to consider going via Eunate.
Well worth seeing.......
 
I stopped there once and stayed at the albergue on the left hand side as you're heading to Puente de la Reina. It was nice and very clean. Good food.
 
Throwing my support behind Albergue Camino del Perdon, I've stayed there twice before.

Depending on the time of year you go, the dormitory can be hot (I was there both times in July) so that point may not be appropriate for you.

The pilgrim menu I remember is very good, proper home cooked food.

The town itself is quiet, there isn't a lot to explore but there is a public pool to soak your feet in the centre, which is very welcome by the time you get there.
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

€46,-
My notes tell me that I had lunch there about 16 years ago; I recall very little but it was the usual Navarrese village with not much to do aside from eat, sleep, and hang out with other pilgrims, which to me is an agreeable way to spend time. I daresay that, were I a local adolescent, it would be ennervating, but I'm not an adolescent any more!
