Ecuador Train Journeys Amazing Adventures Through the Andes & Coast


Path of the Ancestors Train Tour

Overview and History (No longer available)

Riobamba, the first Spanish city founded in the Ecuadorian Andes, was one of the most important cities during the colonial era. During the first years of its existence, Riobamba was, for a short time, the capital of Ecuador.

In this short but exciting tour you will travel south from the beautiful city of Riobamba to the small town of Colta. On the way you can admire the peaceful Colta Lagoon and visit the Balbanera Church, the first Catholic Church built in Ecuador. This tour certainly will take you back in time and will allow you to discover the ancestral roots of the Ecuadorian culture.
