    Towards the end of August we intend to travel down to Northern Spain from Calais. Previously we have entered Spain via Biarritz and Haydane Plage. Are there any more recommended routes to cross the Pyrennes, bearing in mind I don't like paying tolls unless it is entirely necessary:oops:

    You don't have to pay tolls to cross into Spain that way, we don't.

    But it can sometimes be a pain 'cos everybody else is doing it too.

    Like you, would be interested in other routes.

    We are heading down that way 22nd Sept Newhaven to Dieppe eventually ending up in Eastern Algarve Portugal, Albufeira then on to Tavira, Monte Gordo, We always travel toll free all the way. Might go via Cordoba this time and visit the famous Mezquita. If you are stopping in N Spain nice site at San Vincente de la Barquera lots of nice restaurants in town.

    A lot would depend on which part of Northern Spain you are travelling to.

    The Somport tunnel is a relatively easy route to the NE of Spain but Biarritz/Irun is the easiest for the NW coast.
