Renfe starts this Saturday the new season of its tourist trains

Renfe has launched, with the start of the spring, its Transcantábrico (Classic and Great Luxury) and Expreso de la Robla trains, which will travel through the peninsular north routes, in addition to the Al Andalus Train, which will make its classics circuits through Andalusia and Extremadura.

The Transcantábrico Gran Lujo de Renfe, which makes a tour of the Cantabrian coast between San Sebastian and Santiago de Compostela, will begin this Saturday its season with more than 85% occupancy already confirmed and will have 13 departures, until October.

The Transcantábrico Clásico, which will have the option of full itinerary (León-Santiago) or shorter trips, will begin its first journey on May 15, with the Santander-León itinerary and will offer a final trip on October 16.

The Al Andalus Train, which began its journey in 1985 and was reformed in 2012, will start on April 22 with a tour of the main Andalusian cities, departing in Seville.

Tourists will have the opportunity to visit Jerez, Cádiz, Ronda, Granada, Baeza and Úbeda.

The train's spring season starts in April and ends in early June, when Al Andalus says goodbye to its Andalusian itinerary, which will return in the fall, and undertakes a journey between Seville and Madrid in Extremadura.

In this case, travelers will make a journey that will pass through the municipalities of Zafra, Mérida, Cáceres and Monfragüe natural park, as well as Toledo and Aranjuez, with final destination in Madrid.

After the summer hiatus, Al Andalus will resume its trips in September, which will last until the end of October.

The Expreso de la Robla, which will start its journeys on August 10, will carry out two routes: the first, by the old railway line between Leon and Bilbao while the second, known as Green Paradise, will be through the Cantabrian cornice between Bilbao and Oviedo.

Renfe's train offer is completed by the historic Tren de la Fresa, with Madrid-Aranjuez route, which will start its season on April 18 and end on October 26, with several tourist routes.

This year's campaign will have two parts: one in the spring, with 23 trips, which will begin on April 18 and will run at Easter and all weekends until June 30; and another in autumn, with 12 circulations, which will cover all weekends between September 14 to October 26.
