Travel from Bilbao to St Jean Piet de Port???


New Member
Can somebody help me to find out how to get from Bilbao (I arrive from UK by Ferry) to SJPdP? I heard or read somewhere there is a little train going to SJPdP but I haven't found where from.
I arrive on the 4th October and want to start the walk on the 5th October. There seem to be some people with the same idea and I start to get more and more exited.

Firts get a bus into town the port is some way away from the centre of Bilbao.
Bus to Hendaye - 10 EUR (some time ago) (ALSA buses but others may do it too.)
SNCF-train Hendaye -> Bayonne
SNCF-train Bayonne -> St.Jean Pied-de-Port
