🐌 Slow travel: Exploring Spain's top cities by rail 🚅 🇪🇸

Multi-stop tour by train 🚆 With bargain return flights to get you there and back 💸

From £138

Published by

Pirates, we absolutely adore Spain because it has it all. What's not to love about endless sangria, sun, warmth and delicious food. We think each Spanish city has its own unique charm - Barcelona is well-known for Gaudí's unique and iconic architecture, Andalusia is the hub of flamenco, and Spain's northern Basque Country is the birthplace of pintxos, so why limit yourself to one city?

We've spotted flights into Barcelona and out of Malaga this summer, for less than most UK train journeys would cost you. We've also found some great one-way train journeys in between eight great Spanish cities to get you from A-to-B, exploring the best of España on the way from £138. That's cheaper than Spain's interrail pass, which starts at £144 for just only three journeys.

Fly direct from London to Barcelona and from Malaga to London from £17 and £12 each way respectively. We've spotted cheap prices throughout June and July, though, so you can go whenever suits you. 💃

Additional Information

We might be pirates, but we’re an honest bunch. We check all our deals when we review them to make sure everything is available. However, with deals this hot, things change quickly—flight prices fluctuate, hotel rooms sell out, currencies yo-yo. But mainly, demand for the best deals means the lowest prices don’t last long. If you’ve missed out this time, don’t worry, we’re working on more great offers.
