Costa Verde Express
Discover the Costa Verde Express and accompany us on a tour of the nature and culture of the Green Spain.

The Costa Verde Express is the link to Spain’s longest-running tourist train, the Train that started operating in 1983 under the name “El Transcantábrico.” Elegance, care for details, meticulous service, haute cuisine and a spectacular route combining the Cantabrian Coast and the Picos de Europa mountains. Its beaches and cliffs, its green meadows and historic towns will amaze you.

For six days, we will embark on a unique trip through the Green Spain, following the winding metre-gauge railway bordering the Bay of Biscay. From Bilbao to Gijon or vice-versa, we will visit its cities and explore its towns, on the coast and inland, going up to the lakes of Covadonga in the heart of the Picos de Europa mountains. You will savor the North of Spain’s gastronomy, one of the most renowned nationally and internationally.

The train on which you are going to travel is a period train with all the modern comforts. All rooms are air-conditioned with a full bathroom featuring a sauna and hydro massage. You can enjoy the train’s spacious lounges and dining rooms, which are available to passengers and staffed by efficient personnel at all times.
