The journey will take you 1000 kilometres along the Cantabric coast from Galicia to the Basque country through steep cliffs, mountains, sandy beaches and extensive wetlands. The route passes by the small fishing towns of Ribadeo and Cudillero, Oviedo, Gijon, Picos da Europa National Park, Covadonga Sanctuary, Llanes, the canyon of La Hermida, Santo Toribio de Liebana, Santillana del Mar, Altamira Caves, Santander, Laredo with a ferry excursion to Santona, and Bilbao with the famous Guggenheim museum designed by Frank Gehry.
The El Transcantabrico accommodates just 48 guests and runs on a narrow gauge railway with only 3 feet between rails. Four of the ten carriages are saloon cars featuring a bar and dining room. The suites have a double bed, wardrobe, writing desk, telephone and private bathroom.
Breakfast is served on the train while you pass the valleys, fjords, natural parks, bridges and fishing towns of the northern Spain coast and countryside. Lunch and dinner are taken at local restaurants served with a selection of wines. The train does not travel at night, ensuring a peaceful sleep.
