Train outings

We all like travelling.

Starting a journey by train is beginning a visit to memories or new destinations, to the rhythm of the gently rocking movement.

Portugal has so much to offer and you can start your trip just looking out of the train window on this journey along the 2,179 km of railway lines. Family trips, the pair of you or on your own, we have created various circuits you are going to want to know about.

Make your journey even more enjoyable, see our discounts.
