San Sebastion & Barcelona trip advice

Jump to last reply

My wife and I just booked our trip to Spain. We will be arriving in Barcelona aug. 31 at 4pm and departing sept 9th from Bilbao at 7am on sept 9th.

We would love some suggestions on lodging. We would like to have en suite bathroom. We are hoping to keep lodging between $75-$125 a night. Let me know if you think If I should stay more time in either Barcelona or San Sebastion

4 nights Barcelona
4 nights San Sebastian
1 night Bilbao due to 7:00 am flight hopefully near airport.

Things we like is having drinks and tapas, looking at architecture, hiking, vineyards, beaches. Neither of us are a big fan of museums.

We plan on doing at least 1 excursion with Spanish trails in Barcelona probably hiking or canyoning. I went canyoning with Spanish trails 10 years ago and it was awesome.

What day trips would be good to do from San Sebastion?

Hopefully people can help with suggestions on budget lodging in these areas.


Thanks in advance for ant recommendations you have.
