Ecuador’s Devil’s Nose train route is undoubtedly one of South America’s most impressive rail journeys. The track is a feat of engineering, trundling over rocky ravines and past bubbling streams, through thick cloud-shrouded forests and between some of the continent’s impressive mountains. You can hardly feel the gradual drop of 500 metres, travelling forward on one track, backwards on another, and then forward on the next.
Inside the train, large windows and fine linen curtains ensure that guests feel right at home. Comfortable seating and marble tables make this a comfortable journey through Ecuador’s finest landscapes.
At only two and a half hours, the Devil’s Nose train experience is swift, but a lot is packed in to the journey. Tasty snacks and refreshing drinks are available for guests as the historic train makes its way down from the mountains to the coast, travelling perilously close to the cliff edge, and ensuring a rail journey that will make you the envy of everyone you know.
