El Transcantábrico

Spain's first tourist train, built in 1983 from historic 1920s carriages, El Transcantabrico takes you through the lush green land of Northern Spain, in elegance and luxury. Relax in one of the four salon cars, including the panorama car where you can enjoy a drink on plush sofas and watch the landscapes go by the panoramic windows.

Take a seat in the retro bar car, where cocktails are shaken and wine is poured. Or, make your way to the tea room for some quiet time with the views and a good cup of tea.
