Luxury Peru breathtaking journey along the highest train routes in the world

Step aboard this luxury Peru train and explore this breathtaking country in unrivalled style. Experience vibrant cities and spellbinding natural wonders.

Belmond Andean Explorer, South America’s first luxury sleeper service, offers a choice of one- or two-night journeys. From Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, traverse the highest plains of the Andes before arriving to the reflective beauty of Lake Titicaca. Take the opportunity to explore the vast Colca Canyon then continue towards the city centre of Arequipa, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

A vibrant journey through a time-honored land

Rekindle the romance of the rails as you carve a path between Peru’s natural wonders and ancient kingdoms

South America’s first luxury sleeper train glides from Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire, across the lofty Andean plains to the white city of Arequipa. Take in the region’s spectacular highlights en route, including Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon.


As the train gathers pace, slow down in a Peruvian-inspired sanctuary. Rich artisanal accents and furnishings create a serene backdrop from which to observe the rugged landscape outside.

Pen the day’s adventures from your own writing table, or settle down for a nap on plush alpaca wool. Choose from three cabin types, each with its own en-suite.

Traverse the Andes in a haven of Peruvian-inspired comfort

In contrast to the striking landscape that glides past, each twin or double cabin offers a soothing blend of signature Peruvian accents and in-built oxygen for additional comfort at high altitudes. Hand-woven fabrics and soft, Alpaca-style textures invite a leisurely rest. An en suite bathroom and shower permit luxurious bathing––even at 4,000ft.


Discover pioneering luxury and breathtaking rural mountainscapes on the world’s highest rail route

Fresh, bold and wild, Belmond Andean Explorer arrives on the horizon in striking style as the first luxury sleeper train in South America. The silky midnight-blue livery of the train’s 16 carriages shimmers against the backdrop of Peru’s lofty landscapes as it soars across the Andean plains.

Breathe in crisp evening air from the train’s open deck with the majestic La Raya mountain range rising into view. The menu is as colourful as the scenery, with seasonal dishes prepared using fresh local ingredients. Connect with fellow guests in the lounge car and sip a pisco sour to the tune of sweet piano melodies. Retreat to the spa car for a reviving Andean ritual and soothing massage. Then retire to your en-suite cabin for a restful night’s sleep—tomorrow brings new adventures. Unveil the spirit of Peru with an awe-inspiring escape on Belmond Andean Explorer.


An unprecedented rail experience calls for a fresh approach to luxury design. Belmond Andean Explorer marks a departure from classic vintage luxury, instead evoking a contemporary aesthetic perfectly designed to frame the awe-inspiring Andean landscape.

Sink into the serenity of light earthen tones pierced by vibrantly coloured accents, complete with textured leather and alpaca wool. Each carriage carries the names of flora and fauna found along the route. The dining car Muna is named for a soothing Andean herb, and the spa car Picaflor, after the gentle hummingbird. Embracing the ancient Chakana cross as its symbol, this Inca motif is a charm for the marriage of the earth, the underworld and the starry heavens. You’ll find it in all the little details of the train’s design.


Take in the rugged beauty of rural Peru and the tranquility of Lake Titicaca. Discover a floating community at the unique Islas Uros, a fascinating collection of man-made islands using buoyant reeds to stay afloat. Pause en-route from Puno to Cusco at the La Raya market, a colourful stretch of stalls brimming with handicrafts and traditional ware.

Arrive in style to Arequipa; Peru’s second city is rich in vibrant colours and enticing spice-laden scents. Journeys from Cusco to Arequipa capture the heart of the Andean region, with a range of inspiring excursions each day.
