Ride the Devil’s Nose railway
Enjoy twists and turns on this audacious railway line carving its way through the Andes.
The Devils Nose Railway excursion is not currently operating.
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.
