Luxury, glamour, culture, and breathtaking landscapes; these are just some of the wonder that awaits you aboard El Transcantábrico Gran Lujo, Spain’s premier luxury railway tourism experience.

This year marks a significant milestone as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of this illustrious train. Step back in time to the Roaring Twenties, an era when trains embodied unparalleled elegance and sophistication. Imagine yourself in a five-star hotel on wheels, equipped with cutting-edge technology and amenities catering to even the most discerning travellers.

Get ready for a lap of luxury as you step onto the train and see the expansive suites that will be your home for the next eight days. This exclusive experience is available to a maximum of 28 people, as the train has 14 exquisitely decorated Grand Luxury Suites, which all feature a bathtub or shower, providing a private oasis of opulence and refinement.

But this sumptuousness extends far beyond your suite. The meticulously restored common areas, found within the train’s historic Pullman coaches dating back to 1923, are a sight to behold. These stunning carriages have been transformed into numerous lounges, as well as a restaurant, a bar, a tearoom, and even a club car offering nightly entertainment. Additionally, a luxury bus accompanies the train, ensuring your excursions are both comfortable and convenient.

Each day brings a new destination, showcasing the awe-inspiring landscapes of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, and the Basque Country. As you explore these regions, you will also have the opportunity to indulge in their world-renowned culinary traditions, savouring exquisite local specialties on a daily basis.

As the day draws to a close, the train will come to a rest, allowing you to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep before the adventures of the next day. Alternatively, you can prolong the excitement each evening with live performances, dancing, and entertainment aboard the train, providing the perfect opportunity to unwind and create unforgettable memories.

El Transcantábrico Gran Lujo is much more than a mere train journey - it embodies a lifestyle.
