- Cozy Haciendas, Quaint Inns: After riding the easy-going rails during the day, nights are spent in classic haciendas and small inns surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery.
- Visit a Glacier: On the second day of the tour, the train pulls into Urbina station, a stop located at 11,840 feet (3,600 meters) above sea level. The station is also located near the Chimborazo glacier and passengers will actually visit it with one of Ecuador’s last ice traders.
- Authentic Andean Cuisine: If you thought the food was good in Quito (and it is!), just wait until you try the local delicacies in the markets and haciendas visited during the train tour.
- The Devil’s Nose Descent: This is the name of a famous, steep decent down the Pacific slope of central Ecuador. This feat of engineering takes the train through several switchbacks for 800 meters down a nearly vertical slope.
