We will have about 1wk at the end of October between St-Emilion and Barcelona (after Barcelona, we will drive back to Toulouse via Girona etc on the Mediterranean side).
We originally planned to go through France Pyrenees staying in Cauterets area to hike and also drive over some the of Col mountain passes. We have visited Alps/Rockcy Mountains and enjoyed the experiences. However, we are now not sure about the weather at the end of Oct. It also seems that some of the hotels/B&B close by the end of September.
One alternative route seems could be going through Basque country and to Bilbao, then to Barcelona. Is this doable? Will it be a better route for the end of Oct? This will be our first trip to Spain - all places are new to be discovered.
We are still at the planning phase. Would like to hear people's experiences. Thanks!
