Train of Wonders - Ecuador

Train of Wonders
Quito – Guayaquil - 4 days/3 nights - Tuesday to Friday

Our journey begins in the northern Andes of Ecuador, in the valley of Otavalo, where we will discover traditional cultures, handicrafts, and modern export-class rose plantations.  From Quito we will start our trip to the coast, first climbing to the Chimborazo volcano moorlands along the Avenue of Volcanoes. 

The Mythical “Devil’s Nose” pass awaits with its vertiginous zig-zag.  Riding along the Chanchan river canyon we leave the highlands behind.  We cross a cloud forest, then ride along the tropical plantations to the end of our trip in Guayaquil.  We reach the shores of the Pacific Ocean after 504 km or rail and a 12,000 ft. descent to the sea.
