She carts people between Roncesvalles and St Jean nearly every day. The cost depends on how many people she picks up. It is about 9 euros per person if she has at least 3 people. But if you are alone, it will cost you 27 euros. She tries to make up a group when different people call her.

Hi Mouse,
If time allows would you consider walking over mountains to France?
If weather is good you have a nice day in the hills.
Furthermore it might take the "over eagerness" off your departure on the Camino!
