Everything is usually included in the total price: Lodging, meals, shows, guided tours and even live music in trips of 6 to 8 days within different areas of the country.
La Robla Express
This train showcases an itinerary and journey through the nature and culture of northern Spain offering all the comforts and charm one can have whilst traveling in a classic train.
The common spaces of this express, all connected and classically decorated, are composed of three air-conditioned lounge cars with permanent bar service. The breakfast is served buffet-style and the passenger also has unlimited access to daily newspapers, magazines, library, video library and TV, as well as connection to new technologies. The common areas are also available for those who wish to have conferences, lectures, classes and meetings.
There are two itineraries available:
The “La Robla” is a circular route begins and ends in Bilbao and goes mainly into Castilla y Leon. The trip lasts 4 days and three nights and stops at the karst complex of Ojos de Guareña, the Valporquero caves, Leon City, Palencia, the municipality of Espinosa de los Monteros and the town of Balmaseda.
The “Infinite Paradise” itinerary also begins and ends in Bilbao. The duration of the trip is one weekend which tours inside the Cantabrian region. The route passes through the medieval town of Santillana del Mar, the Soplao Cave, Santander, Laredo and Santoña.

During the trip, the traveler will have the privilege of enjoying a palace on wheels while exploring the south of Spain in a circular route.
The trip will be a unique and unforgettable experience from the very luxury and comfort of the Al-Andalus car-suites, which belong to the same series as those built in France for the British monarchy’s trips between Calais and the French Riviera.
The train is cladded in the elegance of the Belle Epoque and as long as it remains in the station, the passenger can either choose to stay on board or go out on your own to enjoy the stop you are in within the scheduled excursion.
