Train tickets in Spain (Seville to Pamplona) appear unavailable within 60 days?

Hello I am looking to get from Sevilla Spain to Pamplona Spain early in the new year. Ideally on Jan 2, 2018. When I use these cities and this date, and other dates in December and Jan I get an error message saying they can't find any trains. When I search in early november I get results. I have read some about how tickets aren't available more than 62 days in advance, which would bring me to Jan 5. Why can't I buy these tickets for Jan 2? Why does it say there are no trains. Thank you!

    Hi Sophie,

    Connections from Seville to Pamplona take about 6 hours in duration and involve changing trains in Madrid en route. When purchasing tickets on www.raileurope.com, you would just break up your search once in Madrid. Therefore, you would do one search from Seville to Madrid and then another search from Madrid to Pamplona.

    Generally, trains in Spain can be booked within 90 days of an intended departure; However, December is the time of year when the annual 'Winter Schedule Changes' occur with some of the rail networks and train operators in Europe. As a result of the 'Winter Schedule Changes', most trains operating after December 9th have not yet been posted in the international booking system, including the trains from Seville to Madrid and Madrid to Pamplona.

    We expect schedules for departures after December 9th to be released some time within the next few weeks. For right now, you can just use a date between now and December 9th to get an idea of the schedules and ticket costs in the meantime.

    At the station in Madrid (the Atocha station), I would recommend that you allow yourself at least 20 minutes to change trains.

    Trains from Seville to Madrid are AVE high-speed trains. Trains from Madrid to Pamplona are Alvia high-speed trains.
