The Transcantábrico Tourist Train was the first tourist hotel-train in Spain, which tried to emulate the mythical Orient Express, making its first trip in 1983 on a journey of 8 days and 7 nights.
During all these years it has been adapting to the new demands of the market, including new innovations; renovated suites, select gastronomy, highly qualified crew and a varied programme of visits and excursions. Today, it is an international benchmark for Quality Tourism, having reached a top position in the list of the World's Best Tourist Trains.
The Transcantábrico Train is one of the world's most luxurious and as such, it is designed to provide its passengers with comfort and exclusivity.
It has only 14 suites spread over 7 cars designed for relaxation and privacy. Each suite can be used individually, for two or even three occupants, as they are spacious and comfortable, lined in wood, with attention to the smallest detail. They are distributed in living room, bedroom and private bathroom.
The Common Rooms are original Pullman cars from 1923, authentic railway jewels. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily à la carte with the best gastronomy of its award-winning chef. In addition, the bar is permanently available.
