Saint Jean Pied de Port Travel Guide:

Saint Jean Pied de Port is the traditional starting point of the Camino de Santiago. This is it’s Spanish name, in other languages it is known as:

English: The Way of St. James

French: Le Chemin de Saint Jacques

German: Jakobsweg

The reason Saint Jean Pied de Port is considered the traditional starting point is that the route between Saint Jean Pied de Port and Roncesvalles is the hardest of the whole Camino.

From Saint Jean Pied de Port up to the col in the Pyrenees is an altitude gain of 1200 metres. The path back down to Roncesvalles drops by 900 metres. At 23km long it takes an experienced walker a whole day.

Whether you are doing it for religious reasons or just for the adventure about 800km later you finish in Santiago de Compostela. Since 1993 the number of Pilgrims on the route has been increasing rapidly. When St. James’s day (July 25) is on a Sunday it is declared a Holy Year. During these periods, numbers of pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago will be considerably more. The next Holy Day year on the Camino is 2021.

The easiest way to get from Biarritz to Saint Jean Pied de Port is surely by private transfer using Biarritz Airport Transfers. Take the hassle out of the start of your pilgrimage by letting us take you directly from Biarritz Airport to your chosen Albergues in Saint Jean Pied de Port.

Our small group was very impressed with the friendly professionalism shown to us - Owen even managed to park right outside our city-centre hotel in Pamplona, and made enquiries on our behalf to find an open restaurant for lunch on our arrival. Happy to recommend this service.

Brilliant service, on time and very pleasant. Easily contactable on phone, email, Whatsapp. Saved all the hassle that usually accompanies getting from airport to holiday destination and return. The chilled water on a very hot day en route was also very welcome. Thank you!

We used Biarritz Aiport Transfers to get from the airport to San Sebastián and back. They were timely, reliable, and safe. I really appreciated the confirmation text the evening before our early morning departure as it put me at ease knowing they were going to arrive on time the following morning. Top notch transportation service (the best we’ve had in our travels thus far). I would highly recommend them!
