driving route from Barcelona to San Sebastian in May - via France?

Jump to last reply

Thanks in part to my trusted Fodorites, we *loved* our first trip to Spain 2 years ago - through Andalusia - so we are headed back to see and experience Barcelona and parts northern in early to mid-May... We start with a week in Barcelona (we like to pretend we're locals & hang out/not get bogged down by sprint-checking the boxes on sightseeing), 5 nights in San Sebastian and 2 in Bilbao (we fly out of Bilbao). I thought it would be nice to do a leisurely drive from Barca to SS, stopping for a night on the way, but am torn between doing this through Spain (have thoughts of going through Huesca, Jaca, Pamplona & the Baztan valley) *OR* going through France - perhaps 1) going north from Barca to Girona... or 2) maybe W from Barca and up through Huesca and Jaca to the Tena Valley, then to Cauterets, Pau (and/or Pont d'Espagne).
Would love suggestions on this - we're definitely on the fence as to whether we want to stay on the Spanish side or venture into France (v foreign territory for us - although this seems like a great excuse as I'd like get the hubs more interested in seeing France). And some variety from what we'll see in Barcelona & SS (and what we saw in Andalusia) are welcome.

Would love advice on the route(s) we should consider, and why. The drive will take place the 18/19th of May - is weather a concern in the mountains at this time? FYI, we plan to keep the car for at least a few days while in SS to do some day trips, so I'd anticipate saving Ainsa, Espellette & other Pays Basque destinations while we stay in SS (vs. en route from Barca).

Thank you in advance!
