    Thank you for your question.

    The Pío Baroja was an overnight train that once operated between Barcelona and Pamplona; however, this service was discontinued several years ago. I'm sorry, as there are no longer any overnight trains from Barcelona to Pamplona.

    Instead, you can take one of the day trains from Barcelona to Pamplona. The ride on one of these trains only takes about 4 hours in duration. You would purchase tickets and check schedules by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage and entering the route.

    The trains from Barcelona to Pamplona are high-speed 'ALVIA' trains or else there is also an 'InterCity' train.

    Generally, trains in Spain can only be booked within 60 to 90 days of an intended date of departure. However, this is the time of year when the annual 'Summer Schedule Changes' occur with some of the rail networks in Europe (including the national rail network of Spain). As a result of the Summer Schedule Changes, many trains operating after June 13th have not yet been updated into the international booking system, including the trains from Barcelona to Pamplona.

    In the meantime, you can just enter a date some time in April to get an idea of the ticket costs and view schedules when searching the route on our site.

    We expect the schedules for trains operating after June 13th to be released some time by mid-May at the latest (but hopefully before then), at which point you would be able to purchase the tickets. I would just recommend checking the route periodically on our website to see when you'll be able to purchase the tickets.
