Galicia gets on the train again to show many of its attractions

The new edition of the Tourist Trains campaign presents two novelties and already adds 14 itineraries.


The Xunta, the Ourense Provincial Council through Inorde and Renfe promote this initiative that will take place between March and October.


One more year, and there are already ten, Galicia will boast of tourist attractions with the help of the train. The Galician Tourism Agency of the Xunta de Galicia, the Ourense Provincial Council through the Ourense Institute of Economic Development (Inorde), and Renfe collaborate once again in the implementation of the Galician Tourist Trains, an initiative with which they invite to “discover different corners of the country” traveling by train to get closer to places as special as “the northernmost point of the Iberian Peninsula and the cliffs of the highest in continental Europe”; “the socalcos of heroic viticulture”, or “pazo gardens with camellias in bloom” enjoying Galician gastronomy in wineries, cheese shops and even tea plantations.


On this occasion, the number of routes grows from 13 to 14 compared to last year’s program. Thus, the routes of the Lighthouses, Pazos and Gardens, Ribeira Sacra Sil, Ribeira Sacra Miño, Valdeorras and Ribeira Sacra, Rías Baixas, O Ribeiro and Rías Baixas, Monterrei, Lamprea, Monasteries, the Cheese Route and the Train of As Mariñas are maintained. The route of the St. James Ways disappears in this edition, but the itineraries FloweringCamellias and Experiencia MEGA and A Coruña from 1906 are incorporated as novelties.


The campaign will take place between the months of March and October and more than thirty trips are planned, all of them on Saturday, and with departures (depending on the route) from A Coruña, Santiago de Compostela, Vigo and Ourense. The price of the tickets will be 45 euros for adults and 20 euros for children between 3 and 13 years old. In addition, groups of 10 or more adults may benefit from a 15% discount.
