Besides the scheduled journeys, there’s a whole range of special programmes designed to help you explore Portugal by train. With so many suggestions to choose from, you’re sure to find one you’ll really enjoy.
Just imagine riding on a steam train that’s been running for over a hundred years! And then add to this the beautiful scenery of the Douro valley! All this Is possible on the historic train that takes you on a real journey through time.
But you can also go searching for adventure. The "Comboio Aventura" (Adventure Train) offers you special programmes that combine train rides with exciting activities like paintball, aerial slides or abseiling.
If you’re more than 12 years old, you can purchase an Intra-Rail card and explore Portugal without having to carry your home on your back, since your card guarantees you accommodation at Youth Hostels.
At different times of the year, the trains link up with special events or traditional local festivities. For example, the Almond Blossom Route offers you the breathtaking sight of flowering almond trees in Alto Douro and Trás-os-Montes. But you can also go to the Cherry Route in the Serra da Gardunha or the Grape Harvest Festival in the Alto Douro Wine Region. And there are many more suggestions…
Just imagine where the train can take you. Make your choice and book your seat for the programme you’re most interested in. Have a good trip!
