Barcelona to San Sebastian

Jump to last reply

Hello all. My wife and I (and possibly another couple) are planning a trip from March 30th to April 10th flying into Barcelona and out of the San Sebastian area and driving between on the French side of the Pyrenees. I am having a hard time at finding consistent information on what to do and what to avoid while driving between. i suppose that is normal considering how most things are subjective. our tentative itinerary is as follows:

03/30 - Arrival (Barcelona)
03/31 - Barcelona
04/01 - Barcelona
04/02 - Barcelona
04/03 - Retrieve car...Possible stop in Cadaques (Dali museum)...continue to ??? (Collioure) ???
04/04 - ??? Collioure ??? then continue to ..... unknown, looking for "Pyrenees mountain town"
04/05 - Pyrenees mountain town then continue to ....
04/06 - ???
04/07 - San Sebastian
04/08 - San Sebastian
04/09 - San Sebastian
04/10 - Departure

So, as you can see, we have no idea what to do during the drive between. we want to drive between Barcelona and San Sebastian to maximize our exposure to things other than the larger hubs. In addition, we're from California and are quite accustomed to driving 5 hours to get between places (Bay Area to Tahoe, LA, Yosemite etc.). We are not big into museums (we dont mind doing big hitters and Dalis seems different than your typical museum). We are all in our mid to late 20s and are very active, but arent necessarily looking to go peak bagging while we're there (thinking more lazy canoe trips down rivers). we can all drink wine like its going out of style (dont worry, we are VERY sober driving conscious) and we certainly plan on eating really good food.

If anyone can offer any suggestions on those four days in the middle, or on the entire trip for that matter, we'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
