Indus travels has departures on Ecuador’s Tren Crucero, where guests embark on a four-day, three-night all inclusive train journey, travelling in either direction between Quito or Guayaquil and journeying through Ecuador’s Andes to the tropical coast. Clients journey along 280 miles of train line, travelling through the Avenue of Volcanoes, ascending up to 3,600 metres into the Ecuadorian Andes and then descending down to sea level, to Ecuador’s coast.
Using steam locomotives from the beginning of the 20th century, each train carriage is luxurious and represents the Ecuadorian identity and history. Along the route guests will disembark the train and visit local communities and regions, learning and discovering more about Ecuador’s cultures and history. Guests will stay in deluxe accommodations. Tren Crucero starts at US$1,420 p.p. for a four-day journey on an all-inclusive basis. (http://www.indus.travel/ecuador/train-journeys/crucero-train)
