    Hi Maria,

    There is actually a direct train from San Sebastian to Santiago de Compostela. The ride takes just over 10 hours in duration. The path does go through Burgos, but you would just remain on the train.

    You would check schedules and purchase tickets by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage ( and entering the route.

    Generally, trains in Spain can be booked once within 60 to 90 days of an intended departure date. However, the rail network of Spain has currently only enabled the San Sebastian-Santiago de Compostela train to be booked for dates up until February 7th. If your intended departure date happens to fall outside of this time frame, you can just enter an earlier date as a way to get an idea of the ticket costs and view the train's schedule in the meantime. You can then check our website periodically to see when your actual travel date can be booked.
