Peru’s antidote to backpacking

Machu Picchu – and Peru’s myriad other attractions – used to be the preserve of backpackers. However, with age comes the need for creature comforts, and an unwillingness to share fetid bathrooms! That’s why we offer a brilliant way to see the country in five-star luxury, by Belmond Andean Explorer sleeper train. As shiny and glamorous within as without, this train comes with welcome Champagne, beautifully crafted wooden carriages, onboard entertainment and incredible Andean views from its wonderfully polished windows.

It’s the perfect way to explore, not only because of its luxurious interior, but also because it travels through hard-to-reach landscapes that reveal the real Peru. On our experience, we’ve punctuated rail travel with some once-in-a-lifetime luxe experiences that you won’t find elsewhere. Arriving in Cusco, you’ll get a Pisco Sour masterclass as well as the option to take a culinary safari with an acclaimed chef.

You’ll arrive at Machu Picchu by Vistadome train, seeing the site open up as you trundle along before being dropped at Kilometre 104 of the Inca Trail hike, for easy access to the ruins. After two days in the mysterious ancient city, you’ll board the Belmond Andean Explorer for three days onboard, stopping off at the Inca ruins at Raqchi, as well as Lake Titicaca and lively Arequipa. If you want to do Peru in style, trips don’t come better than this one.
