Experience one of the most dramatic changes in vegetation and scenery in the world, while aboard the Tren Crucero. Pass by fertile plains in the coast, the highlands of the Andes and through the mythical Devil’s Nose pass. Continue across the Avenue of Volcanoes until you reach Quito, Ecuador’s capital. Then continue to Otavalo, amidst the Northern Andes, where you will explore the Quichua culture, artwork, and traditions. Enjoy lunch in a traditional hacienda, amidst export-class roses. End your journey back in Quito, where you can explore the city’s colonial architecture and history once more.
