recommended driving route from Saint-Jean-de-Luz to Vitoria-Gasteiz?

Jump to last reply

I will be leaving a B&B near St Jean de Luz by car in late September toward two nights in Vitoria-Gasteiz. I'm having trouble choosing my route. From what I see there are three strong contenders:

1) I've read very good things about Nacedero de Urederra for a short day hike and have been thinking I could go through there on the way if the day is lovely. Would be around 2 1/2 hrs through Tolosa, plus time for hiking.

2) According to The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2010/feb/06/europe-road-trips) one of the "Best drives in Europe" goes from Biarritz through Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, skirting Pamplona through Estella to Vitoria-Gasteiz. This looks like about 4 hours (+) according to google maps.

3) I've also read that the "Smuggler's Route" from Sare is the way to go, though I haven't pinned down exactly that that means. Through via this route I'm assuming I could see Ainhoa, Sare and the Zugarramurdi Witch Museum with a little authentic Gateau Basque for good measure along this route.

Any recommendations from folks who have been through this region?

Much appreciated!
