The Pyrenees & Basque Country
9 Days Self-Drive Program
From the Mediterranean to the Basque Country
Barcelona – The Pyrenees – Pamplona – Basque Country
This route is designed to break with traditional tours, to present a Spain that the majority of visitors do not know exists: a Spain of high mountains, snow-capped peaks, green meadows and gastronomy that is considered by many experts to be among the best and most varied of Europe.
The route follows the sun, east to west, setting out from Barcelona, after visiting its numerous and well-known gothic and modernist treasures, its museums and restaurants, for the Pyrenees, stopping at some of its spectacular high mountain national parks, sanctuaries for many species of European flora and fauna, before descending to visit such cities as Jaca and Pamplona. Leaving to the north, you soon arrive at San Sebastian, one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, famous for its culinary art. Now you are deep in the Basque territory, where we will suggest you several roads to drive and towns to visit along the Costa Vasca before Bilbao with sufficient time to visit its new museum, the Guggenheim.
The initial price includes the rental car for 9 days and 8 nights accommodation.
