Cremallera de Núria Queralbs

Vall de Núria Queralbs

The Rack Railway of Núria is the transport par excellence of the Vall de Núria, being the only transport system available to get there. A journey full of history that this year celebrates its ninety years, and to commemorate it, until next November 1 at the Ribes-Vila station and up at the Núria station, an exhibition has been installed that through a virtual game will explain the curiosities and anecdotes lived throughout these decades.

The journey, which covers about 12 kilometers in about 40 minutes, gives us the spectacular nature of a landscape, where the very little human action and the passing of the seasons will awaken us a whole world of sensations. The route takes us from Ribes de Freser to the entrance gate of the Cabeceras del Río Ter y Freser Natural Park, passing through Queralbs . In addition, on board the train, we can enjoy an audio guide system, which will help us to finish connecting with the territory, telling us all the details of the places and the local culture of the area.

The Rack Railway of Núria is an example of good practices and environmental policies in the management of facilities in natural environments, and proof of this are the various projects that are being implemented in order to reduce environmental impact.

Since this year, the Rack Railway uses solar energy, leaving aside fuel and to minimize CO2 emissions. In addition, a study and an adaptation plan have been promoted to improve Núria's waste management and several air conditioning equipment have been replaced by others with greater profitability and energy efficiency.


Exhibition of the 90 years of the Rack Railway:

In both the Ribes-Vila station and the Núria station, two exhibition spaces have been set up that, through gamification, will allow visitors to delve into the history and discovery of the train and to contemplate the landscape. Check more information in the following link.

A trip to a unique valley, Vall de Núria

As if a journey with the Rack Railway Núria was no longer an experience on its own, on Saturdays of each week at 10 am, we suggest you enjoy a historical experience doing a vintage journey aboard an MGB, a vintage Swiss car from to the Matterhorn - Gotthard Bahn line. Accompanied by a guide, you will have the opportunity to discover a genuine classic high mountain transport and the main anecdotes of the journey.

Exhibition of rolling stock:

Do you want to know the history of the Rack Railway? Are you passionate about vintage cars and trains? In the exhibition located in Ribes-Vila you will find a collection of the material used in the operation and construction of the Rack Railway as well as you will be able to access some of the most iconic classic locomotives or vintage cars in history.
