Overview & Highlights

This first class rail service, where you sleep on board in luxury cabins, is complemented by some of the country’s best hotels. Travel through the landscapes of Peru among the snow-draped Andean peaks at a relaxing pace, in tune with the environment.

Enhance the magic that is Peru on this sumptuous short holiday where you travel between the highlights by luxury train. You’ll get a different perspective on this country of such great variety, as you glide through countryside of fields bulging with fruit and vegetables and along wind-buffeted prairies rimmed by ice-jacketed Andean mountains.

Travel by train to and from Machu Picchu, perched on a saddle where the mountains descend to the Amazon jungle. Then from the Sacred Valley you board another luxury rail service. This is a train with a difference: you spend two nights actually sleeping on the train – not in a couchette, but a luxury fully furnished stateroom. The train will be halted at remote, utterly peaceful locations, where you can enjoy blissful, uninterrupted sleep.

In Lima, Cusco and the Sacred Valley you will stay in first class hotels reflecting the same standard of luxury and service as the trains which are operated by Belmond, whose prestigious history and experience in train travel means you will be in good hands.

Our Expert's Opinion

Apart from the wonderful places you will visit along the way, what makes this holiday truly special is the luxuriousness of the trains you will travel on. There's nothing quite like indulging in gourmet cuisine aboard the old-world Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu. Additionally, Latin America's first luxury sleeper train offers a sumptuous and truly unique way to arrive at Lake Titicaca.
