Enjoy the mysticism offered by the beautiful Peruvian Andean landscape aboard the luxury of the Belmond Andean Explorer train. This spectacular 3 day / 2 night rail journey traverses the highest plains of the Andes, travelling from Cusco to Arequipa.

Riding the Andean Explorer is a unique experience, a journey between highlands, mountains and clouds. Boarding in Cusco you will visit the Incan site of Raqch’I before witnessing a sensational sunset over La Raya mountain and arriving in Lake Titicaca for nightfall. The following day you will soak up the culture of the lake and the floating Uros Islands before continuing to Arequipa, known for its Unesco World Heritage–listed city centre, magnificent volcanic landscape and cave paintings thought to be some 8000 years old. Throughout the joruney, the landscape is dominated by the magnificent Andean mountains which tower over the deep valleys of the meandering Huatanay River aswell as rolling Andean plains, dotted with roaming vicuna and alpaca herds.

The Belmond Andean Explorer is exquisitely decorated to subtly evoke the great Pullman trains of the twenties. It includes two dining carriages, a bar and an observation carriage. Cabins are available in double, twin and bunk configurations, each with its own en-suite and shower. Interior designs are inspired by the colours of the mountain landscape, softened by the texture of Peru’s hand-woven fabrics and Alpaca wool.

The Belmond Andean Explorer is one the most of luxurious trains in the world and provides a unique way to travel in first class style between some of Peru’s most iconic and spectacular destinations.
