Summary

Explore the gems of Andalusia onboard the luxurious Al Andalus train on this 7-day journey. 

For the duration of the journey, the train Al Andalus 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 Al Andalus.

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 you 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 you will be out and about on the excursions, while at night you can opt for more formal attire, although no particular dress code is required at any time.

Meals
Breakfast is always served onboard through a personal table service. There is also a varied buffet available. 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 the selection of restaurants during the journey.

Suites
Guests can choose one of the type of the suites: Standard or Superior.
