Start // Bil­bao/San Se­bastián End // Cabo Fin­is­terre Dis­tance // 620 miles (1,000km) Get­ting there // Fly to Bil­bao. Or, if you’re in Eng­land, take your own ve­hi­cle on the ferry from Portsmouth. When to drive // Sum­mer. The sea breezes stop it from be­com­ing too hot. Where to stay // The Paradores: cas­tles, palaces and monas­ter­ies that are now beau­ti­ful ho­tels. Printed and in­ter­net guides (parador.es) are avail­able. What to take // An ap­petite and a Span­ish phrase book. Car hire // Rent a car or mo­tor­cy­cle, most eas­ily in Bil­bao. Or take your own on the ferry. For­mal­i­ties // Spain is a Schen­gen coun­try, so be guided by those visa reg­u­la­tions. Take an In­ter­na­tional Driv­ing Per­mit, or your ve­hi­cle may be im­pounded in case of an ac­ci­dent. De­tours // All over the place. Re­ally. You can’t go wrong.
