Rail Holidays in Spain

The rail trips through Spain from Arena Rail Holidays offer a fantastic opportunity to experience Mediterranean Europe’s hottest country. Spain has a complex and interesting history, which is still reflected in modern times by the many different regions and political climates.

Spain attracts thousands of visitors every year and it is no mystery why: its major cities are packed full of gothic and Renaissance architecture, religious art, and iconic monuments. Visually, Spain is stunning, and its passionate people will make you want to come back again and again.

Spain by rail

While the heat of Spain is one of its main attractions, it can be very unpleasant if travelling across the country. Travelling via a comfortable, cool train carriage will make the experience all the more enjoyable, with the additional bonus of being able to see all the glorious Spanish scenery stretch itself across your window.

Fantastic cities

From its capital, Madrid, to the wonderful city of Barcelona, Spain’s appeal stretches from those looking for a busy night in the city centre, to those looking to explore some of the oldest history in Europe. Its cities have everything you would expect from a bustling, energetic hotbed of activity, but with a Spanish twist to make them even more exciting.

Food and drink

Spanish cuisine differs depending on the region: coastal regions are heavily fond of rice and fresh fish, with paella as the archetypal dish. Central and Atlantic regions, however, are well versed in garlic- and cheese-based dishes. Spanish beer is pleasantly light, while their sangria is the perfect beverage for a day spent in the baking sun. The Spanish have a particularly quirky eating habit in that they like to eat late at night; make sure you venture out for a midnight supper while you are in Spain.

Rich cultural history

Spain is world-renowned for its architectural ambition, and the country is peppered with beautiful and historically significant cathedrals, castles and monuments. Music and dance are highly valued in the Spanish culture, and many festivals are celebrated throughout the year — any excuse for a song and a dance!
