During the day, enjoy gorgeous views from the open observation deck or the sumptuous lounge bar.

Sleep on board in classic Belmond style; in keeping with the brand's exclusivity, the train accommodates a maximum of 68 guests. The en-suite staterooms blend modern sophistication with subtle Andean style, with interiors taking inspiration from local traditional hand-woven fabrics and textures of soft alpaca wool.

During your luxurious journey, all meals are served in one of the two beautiful dining carriages. Start your day with the delicious breakfast – a feast for the senses. Later in the day, enjoy lunch and dinner from a menu designed by the chefs at the excellent Hotel Monasterio, A Belmond Hotel in Cuzco. Let your taste buds explore refined Andean flavours from locally sourced produce served with flair.

Choose from a selection of carefully crafted journeys starting in Cuzco, Puno (Lake Titicaca) or Peru’s second city, Arequipa. Depending on your journey, selected excursions are included en route in beautiful destinations such as La Raya, Raqchi ruins or the unique reed islands on Lake Titicaca.
