Salta and the northwest Andes: Take the Train to the Clouds

Visit Us

Take the Train to the Clouds

Whether it’s for the great heights – ascending to over 4,200m above sea level – or for the peculiar sensation of floating on air as the single track glides across gaping canyons, Salta’s Train to the Clouds is certainly aptly named.

Soaring across the arid highlands of the North West, this narrow-gauge railway performs some mind-boggling feats: there are plenty of vertiginous viaducts and snaking switchbacks, as well as two 360-degree loops. It’s a thrill ride that lasts several hours and spans some of the country’s most beautiful scenery.
