Ready for an adventure? Then why not consider travelling around Spain a different way. Get on the rails and have fun while exploring Spain by train. Hop aboard and brace yourself for an unforgettable ride! Here’s why travel using trains in Spain is a great option.
Alan and I love a road trip – we get to hop on and off where we please, explore areas upon a whim, and basically please ourselves. However, it does come with one major (for Alan anyway) downside. While he is driving, he misses a lot of the breathtaking scenery that this country has to offer! Quite rightly, his focus is on the road and the traffic upon it. While I get to see everything around me, he (as the driver) misses a lot!
That all changes if you are travelling by train. You can kick back, stretch out your legs, and enjoy the views freely – without any risk of crashing your car into someone else. From sunny beaches to awe-inspiring mountains and from verdant valleys to olive tree orchards, Spain’s train journeys offer stunning landscapes to enjoy wherever you go.
With a top-notch network, trains in Spain are a breeze to use. Explore one city after another without any hassle. With the notable exceptions of Almería (blame Franco) and the Spanish islands, the majority of Spain is pretty well covered by its train network.
