Overview

Highlights

  • Journey through the Andean landscape by bus and train with plenty of panoramic pit stops on the way
  • Explore the area outside of Salta and take the 'Train to the Clouds' over the Viaduct of Polvorilla
  • Ride one of the highest railways in the world and take in the views near the border of Argentina and Chile

Description

Set out from Salta and journey north on a bus to the Tren a las Nubes, with three scenic stops before you reach the train at San Antonio de los Cobres. You'll also have the chance to enjoy an Andean country breakfast and crafts fair. Once your stomach's full, get ready for the high-altitude Train to the Clouds.

As you leave the city behind and head for the horizon, the view from your window will change rapidly from Salta's colonial architecture to red plains and mountaintops that would feel at home in a Spaghetti Western.

You won't be travelling for too long before you make your first stop at the town of Campo Quijano, where you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the C-14 line that you'll visit later in the day.

Your next stop is another hint of what to expect on your train journey. Hop off the bus and check out the Viaducto del Toro, a bridge nestled between mountains where a small river flows and mist sometimes settles. It makes for a dramatic photo.

Before you experience one of the most remarkable journeys of your life, there's one more stop. Explore the town of El Alfarcito and mingle with the locals at a craft fair, enjoy a country breakfast, explore the Andean architecture and maybe even spot a llama.

Now for the main event – the train from San Antonio de los Cobres to the La Polvorilla viaduct. This magnificent passage will take you on a bridge 63 meters above the ground and 4,200 meters above sea level. Looking down might leave you nervous, but the memory of crossing the Viaduct of Polvorilla will last a lifetime.

Ein fantastischer Ausflug, besonders der Nationalpark mit den Bergen uin den verschiedenen Farben war einfach toll und teilweise dachte ich, ich sehe es kann gar nicht natürlich sein. Ich kann nur jeden diesen Ausflug empfehlen, auch die Fahrt im Zug zu dem Viadukt war sehr beeindruckend. Ausserdem war die Fahrt ausgesprochen gut organisiert und der Guide hat alles sehr gut in Englisch und Spanisch erklärt. Die vielen kleinen Extras wie Frühstück im Freien eine Postkarte vom Zug in die Wolken mit Stempel und auch im Pass, sowie bei der Rückfahrt Snaks und Getränk war rundum sehr gut. Für mich heisst es 5 Sterne.
