In response to those interested in Spanish trips here’s an account of a great trip we made to Galicia with #offroadadventuretravel in September last year
We only had a week so kicked off with overnight ferry from Portsmouth and landing in Santander the following evening stayed locally At Santillana de la Mer. Day 1 was a long drive initially south then west to get us over to the general area we wished to explore but largely we found ourselves following the Camino de Compostela- a long distance pilgrims path culminating initially at the impressive Santiago de Compostela and then for the hardy the headland at Finnistere – all worthy of a few hours exploration.
Plenty of tracks in the hills and round the coast offered a huge variety of terrain and vistas, and with the luxury of having them pretty much to ourselves. With time of the essence we opted for hotels to save time on camping/cooking/packing which was a genius of an idea. Hotels were generally very good and the local food was outstanding and incredibly reasonably priced . Reckon our most expensive meal was £30 a head for 3 courses including wine!
Unfortunately the 110 let us down at quite possibly the furthest point from the Uk but here is where you really appreciate the benefit of a guided trip. Adam @ offroadadventuretravel really stepped up to the plate here. He knew exactly how to deal with the situation and the likely sequence of events that would ensue so his decision to get us to civilisation to wait for the AA was inspired- because at least we had access to food, toilets and WiFi! Despite the loss of the vehicle we were able to transfer our gear to his car and continue our trip. Although a few hours of off-roading were lost he took it all in his stride and was quick to quell any embarrassment we felt about the vehicle letting us down. The vehicle was returned 48 hours later with Adam dropping us at the garage and then he stayed with us as we embarked on the 350 mile return trip to the ferry with a clock very much ticking. Although the repair failed half way – even at 2am in the morning Adams professionalism shone through, staying with us till the AA recovery reappeared, hotel accommodation had been sorted and ferry travel rearranged. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable week despite vehicle challenges because of a 5 star service. We will definitely be returning to Galicia and we will definitely be customers of #offroadadventuretravel again – having just secured our place for the Pyrenees this June!

36 hours at sea on Brittany Ferries Cap Finistere with fellow adventurers on the way to Bilbao.
Enjoyed a gourmet meal while being entertained by dolphins leaping alongside our ship.
An early arrival in Bilbao and being one of the first off the ferry meant a quick departure from this industrial port town. Within an hour we turn off the Autovia and head east into the foothills of the Pyrenees.
The winding roads and crystal clear rivers guided us on our adventure through the breathtaking mountains which were shrouded in low cloud. As the roads narrowed, the village of Erratzu displayed the stunning alpine style scenery and traditional Basque homes.
The hairpin bends climbed to the Col d’Ispeguy at 672 metres and the border between Spain and France. What an ideal vista to admire over a spot of lunch! Can you spot our sticker?
The long steep descent took us into the beautiful village of St Étienne-de-Baïgorry.
…and on to our first campsite in St Jean Pied de Port. Camping municipal Plaza Berri perfectly located within a 5 minute walk of this medieval town and citadel in the middle of the Basque Country.
St Jean Pied de Port is a popular resting place for pilgrims from the north following the Camino de Santiago de Compostella.
A walk around the walled town with its cobbled streets and a climb to the citadel viewing points revealed a wonderful panoramic view of the valley and surrounding mountains.
Plenty of places to stop off for delicious crepes and strong local cider!
