Coast to coast, Costa Vasca to Costa Brava, this marvellous adventure offers the very best of the Spanish Pyrenees as you traverse northern Spain from the Atlantic to the Med and back!

Bring your own car or motorbike to northern Spain (or fly down and rent) and head straight into the magnificent Pyrenees mountains. The glittering Mediterranean will be your prize but along the way you’ll take in awesome mountain scenery, historic towns and cities and some of Spain’s finest wine regions.

The full route takes at least fourteen days but you can do as little, or as much, as you like.

  • Two sensational National Parks - walking, birdwatching & wild flowers
  • The rugged Costa Brava, dotted with pretty fishy villages
  • Historic Pamplona, Girona and Lleida
  • World-class wines in Somontano, Emporda and La Rioja
