The easy to moderate commemorative trail with experienced guides, from Saint Sauveur chapel above Mendibe to Orbaizeta in Navarre, will involve a two-day walk (each of approximately 3.5 – 4 hours). We will thus emulate the escape route of 75 years ago. Places of historic and other interest will be pointed out on the way and there will be tribute events with local people and representatives in Mendibe, Orbaizeta and Donostia/San Sebastian.
Taking into account the high quality of the hotels and the high-season, favourable tariffs have been agreed with both hotels for the BPFTA group. In order to take advantage of this deal, each participant must book directly, quoting “BPFTA”.

The final price for the Saturday night at the Maisonnave will depend on numbers and early booking and will be between 114€ and 132€ for two sharing a double room and between 85€ and 102€ for single occupancy. Once our block reservation is full, there is no guarantee of availability, or at this price. The tariff is half-board (evening meal and breakfast included).

If participants wish to stay at Olarain or other hotel in Donostia/San Sebastian prior to 22 June or after 24 June 2018, they will need to make those arrangements directly with the hotel, not necessarily at the BPFTA-agreed tariff.
NOTES ON TRANSPORT and LOGISTICS
A coach will be at our disposal from 08:00 on Saturday until Sunday evening. Please note that coach pick-up and drop-off points in Donostia/San Sebastian and Pamplona during the weekend are at the two BPFTA-listed hotels only. As logistics back-up, the vehicle, with non-walking participants, will shadow our walks as much as road access allows and, thus, at two points along the route each day, the coach will meet us.
The cost per participant, walker and non-walker, is 60€. This includes transport for the two days, back-up logistics, the packed lunches on the Saturday and Sunday. the guides and the guided visits on Saturday evening in Pamplona and Sunday evening in San Sebastián. See the registration form on a separate page for registration and payment details. Any costs arising from banking or transfer operations must be paid for by the participant.
