Exploring South America by train on an Atelier rail journey is a wonderful way to travel in style and witness many more highlights of each country, compared to driving or flying. What’s more, some of the iconic Latin American train journeys often cut through otherwise untouched landscapes, meaning a constant film roll of striking scenery outside your carriage window between stops. 

Perhaps the most famous train ride in Latin America is the Hiram Bingham to Machu Pichu, an awe-inspiring route that dissects the gorges, rivers and plains of Peru’s Sacred Valley, culminating at one of the great ancient wonders of the world, the Lost City itself. The Andean Explorer from Cusco to Lake Titicaca and Arequipa is another classic, though the list of alternatives outside Peru is also long. 

You could travel through national parks and past volcanoes on the Tren Crucero in central Ecuador, including the infamous Devil’s Nose, or crisscross sparsely populated Salta in northern Argentina. A trip back in time comes courtesy of Minas Gerais, Brazil, on a track built during the 18th-century gold rush, while Bolivia offers unique rail journeys through desert and salt plains into northern Chile. With shorter routes connecting spectacular locations across tropical Colombia and rural Uruguay too, a rail journey in South America with Atelier is guaranteed to leave its mark.
