A halt of
peace on the road
If the path through the mountain is not passable we will transport you by minibus after breakfast on the way from the valley to the Spanish village of Valcarlos
Located in the heart of the Basque Country, on the GR65, between Saint Jean Pied de Port and the Bentarte Pass, Orisson is an ideal stopover before reaching the Lepoeder pass. Orisson’s position on route towards Roncesvalles provides a welcome stop, and allows walkers to undertake this mythical part of the trek in two stages.
You will find accommodation for walkers to rest and a restaurant that highlights local cuisine using local produces.
With a capacity of 28 beds in dormitories of 6 and 10 beds,
the Orisson refuge is open from April to October.
It was converted from an ancient shepherd’s house in 2004,
maintaining the traditional charm, while offerin some comfort.
