It is very easy to travel by train from Irun to Lisbon. A direct night train called the Surexpreso traverses northern Spain, crossing the Portuguese frontier while you sleep. By the morning, you’ll be cruising down the Tejo Valley into the Portuguese capital.

This is a premium night train service with a good range of accommodation options to suit all budgets. You can, if you wish, just book a seat, but it’s not the most comfortable option for overnight travel. We recommend trading up to a sleeper.
