Tren Crucero

Experience the wonders of Ecuador on board Tren Crucero, recognized as the Leading Luxury Train in South America in 2014 and 2015.

Journeys are 3 nights / 4 days from Durán, near Guayaquil to Salinas, north of Quito or in reverse. Modern, electric-diesel, and lovingly restored, antique steam locomotives pull a high-quality convoy of two luxury, Colonial and Republican-style themed passenger cars carrying just fifty passengers, to ensure personalised service for all.

Hike the rainforest, roam ancestral markets, visit artisan’s workshops, meet the last ice-harvester of Chimborazo, and be welcomed in indigenous communities where you will learn about Andean cosmogony and ancestral traditions.

This is more than just a train ride, it’s a journey of discovery through Ecuador’s mystical heart.  snacks, fresh made juices, coffee, tea, soft and alcoholic drinks are available all day. Some meals are also served on board, while others are part of day tours. Nights are spent in characterful countryside hotels and haciendas along the way.
