Travelling from London to Pamplona?

Hi there everyone .... I've booked my ticket from Christchurch to London 3 September, and then planning to fly out to Spain on the 5th. (destination Pamplona). Just wondering if anyone can give me advice as to best/easiest place to fly into. Flying direct to Pamplona is awfully expensive I've discovered. I'm looking at maybe flying into Biarittz or Bilbao and then bussing/training to Pamplona .... can anyone give me ideas? Or is there another option that I don't know about! Thanks in anticipation. Cheers, Trish xx

barcelona or madrid. quite far away, but from both cities you can take a train to pamplona that will take you there in less than 4 hours. there are buses too (cheaper, but these take a bit longer)

It is easy to get a train to Pamplona from Irun. Someone else might know how hard it is to get to Irun from Biarritz. But I am not an expert here and someone else will know more.

Pamplona airport is poorly connected and expensive. Here are several other options ... no one option is better than another ... it depends on your timings.

Option 1 See this thread for information London to Biarritz Airport
http://www.caminodesantiago.me/comm...-links-for-travel-from-london-to-sjpdp.23382/

Option 1a. Edsa Bus from Biarritz Airport to Bus station Pamplona.

Option 1b. From Biarritz Airport take bus #C to Gare Biarritz. From Gare Biarritz catch the SNCF train to Irun/Hendaye. From Irun station catch Renfe train to Pamplona.
