Avenue of the Volcanoes: Ride the Devil's Nose railway

Visit Us

Ride the Devil's Nose railway

One of South America's most iconic stretches of rail, the Devil's Nose descends a near-vertical Andean mountainside via an impressive set of switchbacks. It's an ambitious feat of railway engineering, and as you weave alongside perilous drops on century-old tracks you may be reminded more of a rollercoaster ride than a traditional train journey. There's also spectacular scenery to add to the drama, as the train cuts through a classic Andean panorama of looming mountains and timeless open grasslands.
