Belmond Andean Explorer
The Belmond Andean Explorer is one of the highest train routes in the world. This luxury train transports up to 48 passengers through the vibrant cities and natural wonders of Peru on one or two night itineraries.
The Belmond Andean Explorer stops each night to ensure a restful sleep and a day full of admiring the beautiful vistas. Beginning in either Cusco or Puno, this luxury train will whisk you past condors flying through sweeping valleys and snow-capped mountains.
Observation, Lounge, and Spa cars offer the perfect places to unwind while on the move. Inspired by Peruvian nature, colors and textures throughout consist of soft ivory Alpaca tones and Andean slate grays.
The 34 cabins range in size yet each comes with its own en suite bathroom and shower. The Bunk Bed Cabins offer a traditional sleeper train experience, while the Double Bed Cabin is more spacious with a comfortable double bed and a seating area.
Life On Board
Seasonal, local dishes are prepared in the two elegant Dining Cars. Travelers can therefore enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner and a refreshing afternoon tea after day excursions.
The Belmond Andean’s Spa Car ensures guests receive a very Peruvian experience. Rejuvenating massages and facials utilize local ingredients. Additionally the Piano Bar Car has a medium grand piano, setting the backdrop for an evening of cocktails and conversations with fellow passengers. In the library, read more about the history and culture of Peru. Finally, in the Observation Car, appreciate the breathtaking landscape from the open deck.
The Belmond Andean Explorer makes several stops, giving travelers the opportunity to explore points of interest along the way. One- and two-night itineraries take travelers through Cusco, to several archaeological sites and the plains of the Andes.
A stop in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city of Arequipa, gives travelers the opportunity to explore its plaza and white baroque buildings at the base of a volcano. Another journey takes a trip to Lake Titicaca, the largest lake in South America. While here, travelers can enjoy a private lunch and watch a traditional dance. A boat ride onto the lake takes you to the man-made island of Uros, made of woven reeds. Take a step back in time at the Sumbay Caves, home to paintings estimated to be almost 8,000 years old.
