Profile

Itinerary

St Jean Pied de Port is a beautiful town surrounded by walls and mountains, a place where the different variants of the Way of St. James in the south of France, such as the Lepuy, Arles or Piedmont routes, meet.

Leaving St Jean Pied de Port, the paved road winds slowly through the valley. Once past the Auberge d'Orisson, where you can stop to rest, the slope begins to level out a bit and the route continues on a grassy path that climbs up the hills before descending steeply to Roncesvalles.

Hiking through the Pyrenees can be unpredictable due to the weather. However, people used to hill walking or hiking will not encounter a particularly difficult route, as the slopes are not as severe and the steepest part of the hike is on a quiet road.
