History of the Rack Railway

For the last 91 years, the Rack Railway has been the only mode of transport providing access to Vall de Núria, a ski and mountain resort located at an altitude of 2,000 metres in the municipality of Queralbs in the Eastern Pyrenees.

Passengers experience a brand new world of sensations as they marvel at the beauty and spectacle of the landscape. With a length of 12.5 kilometres, Núria’s unique Rack Railway takes just 40 minutes to overcome an elevation change of 1,000 metres.

The route passes through four stations: Ribes-Enllaç, Ribes-Vila, Queralbs and Núria, which with an altitude of 1,964 metres, marks the end of a spectacular journey and the start of an incredible experience in the valley itself.
