Transport in Spain

Intrepid believes half the fun of experiencing a new country is getting there, and getting around once there! Where possible, Intrepid uses local transport options and traditional modes of transport - which usually carry less of an environmental impact, support small local operators and are heaps more fun. 

Depending on which trip you're on while in Spain, you may find yourself travelling by:

Underground subway train in Spain

Train

Spain’s trains are a reliable, fast and cost-effective way to travel around (and between) the cities. Many Intrepid trips in Spain incorporate rail travel, giving passengers the chance to take in the scenery and interact with locals and fellow travellers.

How we're giving back

In Barcelona, we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies. We also visit locally-run restaurants and markets where travellers will have opportunities to support local businesses and purchase handicrafts created by local artisans.
