The toughest section stage 1, with a steep climb to the Roncesvalles.  Then pass across the Pyrenees on a route called Ruta Imperial (Imperial Route). You will be rewarded with wonderful panoramic mountain views and a great sense of achievement. An alternative route is available along the valley for those who prefer a more gentle option.

Beautiful... the music of the cow, sheep and horse bells ring through the air.

A hard constant uphill slog for 20kms. A real test for the hiking shoes. Take the road option to descend into Roncesvalles, for the last 6kms. Don’t end up with blisters or fall on the screed of the walking track. Be warned. And what an oasis is the hotel Roncesvalles after today’s walk! Great showers, large rooms, good cafe con lecher & top local dishes for dinner.

Due to weather I had to take the route via Valcarlos and was disappointed your app did not cover this route.
