There is also the Valcarlos variant, being able to complete the stage with less difficulty but without the same natural appeal.

In Roncesvalles, we recommend that you visit the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria and the Chapel of Santiago.

    Short stages option, Easy Camino: If you choose this itinerary option you can divide this stage into two stages with less route , with a first stage of 12 Km until the village of Valcarlos , where you will spend the night, and a second stage of 13 Km until you reach Roncesvalles. It is a good alternative of little difficulty compared to the Napoleon route and suitable for winter or snow periods, although with a not so prominent landscape.
