Winter driving, Madrid back to Madrid (or Barcelona) route planning?

Jump to last reply

At the route planning stage for our 'little drive' around Spain & Portugal. I always find the intial part of setting out a plan hard but once I've got a rough route in mind, I'm off and running.

We will be arriving into Madrid on the 27th December, we will probably just stay one night and then pick up a hire car or maybe even a camper. We've always wanted to have a go at a camper holiday, this seemed like a good time to do it.

We will have 17 days to explore, which also allows us a night or two in either Madrid or Barcelona (20 days in Spain) before heading to Amsterdam for our flight home. We have been to Barcelona & Valencia previously. Without going into any detail I've mapped out a rough plan, I'll be able to spend some time filling in the blanks re where to stay & for how long & what to see once I've worked this bit out.

Madrid to San Sebastian via Sergovia & Pamplona. Then follow the coast around to Santiago de Compostela, down to Lisbon via Coimbra & Nazare before heading to Seville. Then on to explore the Andalucias route through the White Villages before making our way back to Madrid or Barcelona (depending on flights)

We are (will be ;-( ) both 50 and pretty seasoned travelers, we've driven in Europe many times and love to be able to change our minds re how long we stay somewhere etc. For us, pretty scenery, historic villages & buildings and Food & wine are our big drawcards. DH loves 'discovering' cave, grottos interesting hikes etc.

My biggest question I guess is, is this route possible in late December early January? Love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks as always AD
