Both in the dining cars or in the distinguished restaurants along the route, the gastronomy is the responsibility of the most renowned kitchens and chefs of northern Spain, an area already ranked among the best in Europe for the quality of both its professionals and its products.

The journey itself is a tour of the gastronomic identities of Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country, where different cultures have inhabited, each leaving their own trait on the typical flavours of Northern Spain. A culinary tradition renewed and reworked by internationally famous chefs, which travellers will enjoy along the route.

Our fine buffet breakfast is complemented by the personalised attention of our waiters. Local specialties will be presented during the tour in the form of sweets, tortillas, pies, cheeses, cold meats, etc., thereby ensuring that every day is different and original - even at the breakfast table.

Lunches and dinners will be served both in the elegant train dining cars and at respected restaurants that make up our selection of restaurants during the journey. The innovative cuisine of Northern Spain and the traditional recipes of Castile are the centrepieces of this culinary and cultural trip. Dishes like Asturian fabada (stew), mountain cocido, baked fish, desserts like frixuelos (local crepes) or Mondoñedo tart, renowned Galician seafood or anchovies from Cantabria are just a small sample of the extensive and mouth-watering culinary offerings onboard El Transcantábrico Gran Lujo. All of this paired with the finest wines from different wine regions in northern Spain.

Menus are set in advance, seeking a balance between the traditional cuisine of each area, the creativity of our professionals, and the innovation that has made Spanish chefs famous internationally. Nevertheless, special food requirements due to health or personal choice shall be addressed without prejudice to the quality of meals on offer. All you need to do is notify us - preferably at the time of booking - to ensure that your culinary needs are catered for on the journey.


Life on bord Transcantabrico

For seven nights and eight days the Transcantábrico Gran Lujo will become your living room, your means of transportation, your socialising place, your bar, your bedroom: a hotel on wheels in which you sleep and wake up in a different place every day. The landscape passing by the window of your suite or the lounge where you are having a coffee is never the same. That simple fact makes the trip itself unique and unlike any other experience.

To ensure passengers a good night’s rest, the train will remain parked at a station at night. The train lounges are especially designed for relaxation and unfettered enjoyment of the evocative ambience, also offering the chance of sharing the company of fellow travellers. Many friendships have been formed over a drink onboard El Transcantabrico.

After dinner, an evening of entertainment. Every night is party night, with various live performances throughout the trip. Given the length of the train, these will not affect those who prefer retiring earlier to the privacy of their suite. You can also choose to have a quiet drink on one of the other saloon cars, or go for a stroll in whichever town we are spending the night. The train will remain parked at the station until the next morning.

In general, comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended for the daytime when we will be out and about on our excursions, while at night you can opt for more formal attire, although no particular dress code is required at any time. The only exception is for gaining access to the Casino de Santander on the routes that include that city, where there is a requirement for more elegant dress (suit and tie are not required, but shorts or trainers, for instance, are not allowed).
