11 nights in Northern Spain

Jump to last reply

My family (myself, husband and two grown children, ages 21 and 19) are planning a trip to Spain this May. Yes, soon!

I know I want to visit Barcelona and the Salvador Dali sites north of there and eventually make our way over to the west coast to see San Sebastian and the Basque region. I'm considering making our way west via the French side of the Pyrenees mountains. Would love anyone's input on hikes and/or places to stay along the way. My brother in law tells me that Foix has some great castle ruins to explore and my husband LOVES castles. Any ideas on the best (prettiest, not necessarily the quickest) route to drive to get from east to west? Suggestions for places to stay along the way?

Also, is early May (the 5th thru the 15th) super busy? I know there are a lot of festivals going on, but wasn't sure if it would be necessary to lock down accommodations ahead of time. Part of me likes the peace of mind of having a reservation, but I also like the flexibility of setting our own pace once we get there.

This is my first time on the Fodor forum so I really appreciate any and all help!!!
