    Hi All,

    My partner and I are going on an adventure for approx 3 weeks.
    We will arrive in Santander at 12:15 on a Monday and need to get to Monaco for Friday night or early Saturday in order to catch the F1 weekend.
    We will be riding a KTM 990 Adventure two up and camping.
    We would like to spend time in the Pyrenees region.
    Where would be a good place to base ourselves to give good access to the best roads/scenery?
    Any advice or tips welcome

    Thanks in advance

    Have a read through our report from 2011, you can even follow the route we took, it takes in some of the best places in the pyrenees, we only camped once but can highly recommend camping Sabinianigo
    First day off the ferry we stayed at a small town santesteban and had a massive steak feast for £12 euros each :D
