On the Route de Napoleon section of the Camino de Santiago, Orisson is the last location between St Jean Pied de Port (France) and Roncesvalles (Spain) where accommodation is available to walkers. Getting to Orisson required a steep climb of 800m over a 8 km path. Beyond Orisson there is a further steep 500m uphill climb followed by a longer steep downhill stretch, a total distance of 17 km before Roncesvalles.

The view from Orisson is great - when weather permits. We were fortunate to have a short period of clear skies after we arrived.
