Itinerary Recommendations: Barcelona-Pyrenees-Northern Spain-Madrid

Jump to last reply

Would appreciate recommendations on my itinerary from those familiar with the titled areas of Spain above. About us:

1. Family of four (45M; 48F; 15F; 12M);
2. Dates: Jun 4-18 (inclusive travel dates; excludes flights). Will be renting a car--Picking up in Barcelona, dropping off in Madrid;
3. Interests: Scenery/outdoors, art/architecture, food/wine. Enjoy more out-of-the-way cities/sites, however, realize that we need to brave the crowds in order to see the museums/sites in the big cities (Prado, etc.).

Questions:

1. Is the following itinerary too busy for 15 days? Will we be spending too much time driving in the car instead of enjoying the villages and sites? Are there noticeably large distances between stops?
2. How distinct are the various sections of the Pyrenees (Catalonia, Aragon, Navarra)? Is the proposed itinerary including five days of much of the same (mountain/valley villages)?
3. What are we missing by excluding the Pyrenees villages in Navarra (Isaba? Roncal? Roncesvalle?)
3. Other suggestions for the itinerary?

Days 1-3: Barcelona
Day 4: La Seu D'Urgell
Day 5: Val d'Aran, Vielha
Day 6: Taull, Parc d'Aiguestortes i Estany
Days 7-8: Torla, Monte Perdido
Days 9-10: San Sebastian
Day 11: Bilbao
Days 12: Abalos
Days 13-15: Madrid and AVE back to Barcelona

Thank you for your input.
