Road trip through Pyrenees - October 2013

Hi

My wife and I will be visiting Barcelona in the middle of October 2013. We plan to do a road trip from Barcelona through the Pyrenees to Santander.

We plan a 4 day trip, about 250km each day.

Our itinerary roughly:

Day 1: Barcelona - Berga - Coll de Nargo - Tremp

Day 2: Tremp - Pont de Seurt - Campo - Broto - Jaca

Day 3: Jaca - Anso - Auritz - Leitza - San Sebastian

Day 4: San Sebastian - Bermeo - Laredo - Santander

I have two questions:

1. Will the weather be okay to drive through the Pyrenees in middle October? We don't mind rain or even the cold, we just don't want to get to a town and the passes are closed due to snow or slippery roads.

2. Does the itinerary seem feasible? Please note that we don't necessarily have to stop and explore every town, but rather stop now and then and do a leisurely drive of about 5 to 6 hours each day.

Thanks!

I think the probablility of snow in October is very small. The weather should be good.

Hi Bruwer

How was your road trip? I'm planning something similar and would be very interesting on hearing about your musts and don'ts. I'm disapointed by the fact there are so few replies on the forum :-/

Hope you get my post! :-)

Isabel
