    Riobamba Favorites

    When I visited Riobamba in 2013 you could not see Chimborazo from the city, it was not clear enough. Even if you don’t see the mountain from the city, the views of the mountain can be clear when you get higher up. Luckily that was the case when I went on a biking tour to Chimborazo.

    Urbina Transportation

    Posada La Estación used to be situated in the station building in Urbina, but when the railway was renovated and reopened Rodrigo had to move his business to a building opposite. The station building in Urbina is now only opened when a train arrives, and if prebooked it is open for groups to stay the night. Now you can either take the tourist train...

  • Alausi & the Devil's Nose Train Journey

    Alausí Favorites

    The main reason to go to Alausi is the Devil's Nose train journey - fabulous scenery and great views from attractive old train carriages (if you're lucky) or from the more moden autoferro (bus on train wheels) if the train itself is not running. However, Alausi is a pretty little town when the weather is fine and worth a wander. For good...
