RETURNING FROM RONCESVALLES Posted March 2, 2020

Many among you end their French pilgrimage with the stage from St. Jean Pied de Port to Roncesvalles. It is a good idea to do this stage when already in shape from several days’ hiking, rather than doing it as one’s first stage the next year.

If you sleep at Ultreïa, you may leave your backpack at the gîte, and we will lend you a small one for the climb; and you can sleep again that night at Ultreïa if you wish.

To return from Roncevaux, there are many possibilities:

Hitchhiking (0 €)

which works very well in summer with tourists who are delighted to talk with pilgrims.

We will give you lsome hints to be sussesfull!
