Car travel from Barcelona to Lourdes in December

I plan to travel by rental car from Barcelona to Lourdes France in December. Any advise to get there. I will not drive through the Pyrenees maybe icy snowy, but drive the lowlands. I also want to go to San Sebastián then drive to Madrid. Thanks.

The fastest route at any time is the E15 (AP7 in Spain, A9 in France) to Narbonne, the A61/A64 westbound to Tarbes, then the D95 up to Lourdes. The road up is almost entirely a gentle slope with few bends, and is highly unlikely ever to be blocked by snow.

The route via Pau and Bayonne to San Sebastian is also painless in any weather.

The AP8/AP1 motorway from SS to Madrid should also be straightforward.
