Ride the Thrilling "Tren a las Nubes"

Ride the thrilling "Tren a las Nubes," the Train to the Clouds from Salta, Argentina high into the Andes Mountains on the border with Chile. This day-long railway journey makes a spectacular experience: you'll pass through deep gorges, ride along steep viaducts and through dark tunnels, as you travel curve around the Andes Mountains past quiet villages.

Also explore the city of Salta, the Hill of 7 Colors, and the nearby town of Humahuaca.

IMPORTANT: The Train to the Clouds and Safari to the Clouds tours won't operate until further notice. Another tour will be booked as an alternative.

Salta Argentina Architecture

Arrive in Salta & City Tour

Day 1

Arrive in Salta today. If you arrive at the airport, your guide will be waiting there to meet you and take you to your hotel in the downtown area of Salta. This afternoon, enjoy a 3-hour city tour of Salta, an important colonial city in northwestern Argentina. The city tour includes the vista point from Cerro San Bernardo Hill, the Salta Cathedral, the 18th-century Cabildo, the Plaza 9 de Julio, the Church of San Francisco, the Town Hall, the Museo de Arqueología de Alta Montaña (Archaeology Museum of the High Mountains), and the local handicrafts market.

Day 2

Have breakfast at the hotel, and then prepare for a day of adventure aboard the Train to the Clouds. Your guide will take you to the General Belgrano Station in Salta, where you'll board the train for the 15-hour journey on the Tren a las Nubes. This train was originally constructed for shipping across the Andes to Chile, and it reaches as high as 4220 meters (13,850 ft), making it one of the tallest trains in the world. The train was developed so that it does not need brakes; instead, it uses curves on the track to control speed. The train ride includes lunch, snacks, and folklore dances and music. There are also opportunities to get out at San Antonio de los Cobres, to visit this traditional Andean town, and enjoy panoramic views of the Andes. The train returns to the station in Salta late at night, and your guide will be there to pick you up and take you to your hotel.

Day 3

After breakfast, take a full-day excursion to the Quebrada de Huamahuaca, a pre-Colombian town built among richly-colored rocks of gorgeous colors. The highlight is the Hill of Seven Colors. Huamahuaca Canyon is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is home to many indigenous villages, pre-Colombian fortresses, and natural beauty.
