The Luxury Train Club has a special deal on selected trips on the Spanish luxury train, El Transcantábrico Clásico.

El Transcantábrico Clásico is a luxury train that runs rail tours through Cantabria, Castile, Asturias and the mountainous Picos de Europa to the Bay of Biscay; all part of España Verde or Green Spain, is completely different from the parched South. The regional cuisine ranges from Galician seafood, to rich Cantabrian meat dishes and Asturian cider. Gastronomy, art, architecture and landscapes are featured in a fully inclusive excursion programme.
Despite running on a narrow gauge railway, El Transcantábrico Clásico features good-sized suite compartments with double beds, all with private en-suite bathrooms. The train has large panoramic windows for the best views of the passing scenery. El Transcantábrico Clásico is static overnight for a good night’s sleep.
Unusually for a luxury train, most meals on El Transcantábrico Clásico are eaten off the train in local restaurants, allowing passengers the opportunity to savour the regional cuisines of the north of Spain. Breakfasts are on board.
El Transcantábrico Clásico has four lounge cars, made more than a century ago; a bar car with live entertainment every night, a second bar car with a quieter atmosphere and two lounge cars for watching the scenery go by, reading or socialising.
The Luxury Train Club is offering a special fare of EUR 2,400 per person, based on double occupancy of the Classic Suite, with supplements of EUR 880 for single use, or EUR 1,000 for triple occupancy by a child under 12 for the following journeys:
- 6th and 20th October, from Santiago de Compostela
- 13th October, from León
Fay Lejeune of the Luxury Train Club says, "El Transcantábrico Clásico is a very special train, a little known delight travelling through a rarely visited region of Spain, which is presented to travellers thanks to a rich programme of included excursions and meals in local restaurants.”
