This 4-day heritage train journey takes you between Guayaquil and Quito (or vice versa) along a breathtaking track across the Ecuadorian Andes. Beautiful reconditioned steam engines pull the four carriages and take you through the transition from moorlands to cloud forest before reaching the coast.
