The Andean Explorer offers luxury train travel across Peru

Rekindle the romance of the rails aboard the Belmond Andean Explorer, South America’s first luxury sleeper train. As you carve a path through Peru’s natural wonders, you’ll come across ancient kingdoms and take in the region’s spectacular highlights en route as you travel from Cusco to Arequipa. From the capital of the Inca Empire, you’ll sweep through the lofty Andean plains taking in the vibrant landscapes including Lake Titicana and the Colca Canyon before you arrive at the white city, otherwise known as Arequipa. After you take in the spectacular sights on the outside, you’ll return inside to one of the most luxurious trains in the world. A Peruvian-inspired sanctuary, the Andean Explorer caters for your every desire in an environment of rich artisanal accents and furnishings that create the perfect backdrop for your adventure. A stark contrast to the rugged landscape, the Belmond Andean Explorer is soft and welcoming from the dining cars to your very own private accommodation. After a day of outdoor pursuits, soothe your body in the Picaflor spa car where you will be rejuvenated with a range of treatments and massages, before retiring to your cabin to unwind further before a peaceful night’s sleep.
