La Robla Express, a period train for exploring northern Spain




We suggest an evocative journey in a period train running on two routes, between Bilbao and Leon, or between Bilbao and Oviedo, in either direction. This is La Robla Express, an early 20th-century style train with all the comforts of today, designed to enhance the pleasure of travel, and conceived so travellers can enjoy the beautiful landscapes through its large windows.

La Robla express offers glamour and comfort during your journey. It has enormous windows so you can admire the countryside while you travel, as well as common recreational areas including saloon cars with permanent bar service, newspapers, library, video library, television, games area, free breakfast buffet, piped music, computers and free Internet connection.Its sleeping cars have individual air conditioning and heating, and their own separate bathrooms with hydro-massage showers. In order to ensure your undisturbed rest, the train remains stationary at night so that passengers are not awakened by the movement.

During the route, the train stops at cities and places of interest that can be visited with a guide on the special La Robla express coach.La Robla itinerary: The route from Bilbao (Basque Country) to Leon, or vice versa, runs mainly through Castile-Leon.
