Travelling by plane is fast and by boat, evocative. However, none of them is as authentic as travelling by train. Probably, we are sort of nostalgic, but we are sure that after checking the train tour that we offer you, you will have the same opinion as us.
AL ANDALUS LUXURY TRAIN
AL ANDALUS is one of the most spacious and luxurious touristic trains in the world, which will allow you to make an unforgettable trip surrounded by the atmosphere of 1920 and with the comfort of the 21st century.
The suites cars that today make up the Al Andalus were built in France to be used by members of the British monarchy when travelling between Calais and the French Riviera.
For the duration of the journey, the Al Andalus will become your living room, your transportation, your meeting 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.
After dinner, an evening of entertainment. Every night is party night on the Al Andalus, with various live performances programmed throughout the trip.
The cuisine of each area imprints its personality on the different routes that this palace on wheels takes. The Andalusian kitchen features world famous products such as olive oil, sherry or Jabugo Iberico ham, with dishes such as gazpacho and oxtail. A new generation of cooks is now bringing a blast of fresh air to the Mediterranean and Andalusian cooking traditions.
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. Travellers who for reasons of health or personal choice prefer special menus may request these without prejudice to the quality the meals.
