Belmond Andean Explorer | Luxury Train Travel in Peru | Lightfoot Travel
Belmond Andean Explorer Cusco, Sacred Valley, & Machu Picchu

The Belmond Andean Explorer gives you a front row seat to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. From Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, traversing the highest plains of the Andes, to the reflective beauty of Lake Titicaca. Explore the vast Colca Canyon then continue towards the city centre of Arequipa, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Each twin or double cabin offers a soothing blend of signature Peruvian accents and in-built oxygen for additional comfort. Hand-woven fabrics and soft, Alpaca-style textures, fabulous timber finishes, linen-covered walls, leather seating, and bathrooms fashioned from local stone invite a leisurely rest. 

The full spectrum of Peruvian flavors against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery. Gather with new friends in the lounge and enjoy a Pisco Sour from the bar, or retreat to the sumptuous Spa Car for a botanical-infused relaxing treatment.  


Belmond Andean Explorer Information

Location & Getting There

The Belmond Andean Explorer offers itineraries from Cusco to Arequipa, or the same in reverse. Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport, located in Cusco, and Rodríguez Ballón International Airport, in Arequipa, serve as the primary connecting points for a journey on board.

Accommodation

The Belmond Andean Explorer accommodates up to 68 guests in 34 ensuite cabins that range from suite/doubles and twins, to luxurious bunk-bed style rooms for two. Interiors are inspired by the rich textures of traditional Peruvian hand-woven fabrics and soft Alpaca wools. Shades of Andean slate grey create soothing environments that are at once classic, minimalist, yet undeniably Latin American in look and feel. Discover true relaxation as you step into your own personal sanctuary, a space where you can sit back, unplug, and enjoy the journey.

Activities

On the Belmond Andean Explorer guests have the unique opportunity to experience the raw beauty of Mother Nature and the luxurious comfort of manmade technology and style, at the same time. Travel across the giant peaks and wide open spaces of the highest plains of the Andes. Explore Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Take in the reflective beauty of Lake Titicaca. Marvel at baroque buildings constructed in white volcanic stone in Arequipa, the ‘White City’ and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In between, relax and unwind on board the Explorer in the lounge car, singing songs around the baby grand piano and making new friends; in the dining cars, feasting on fresh seasonal dishes using locally sourced ingredients from the Peruvian Andes; or in the observation car, breathing in the Andean air from the open deck. This is a unique opportunity to experience the golden age of rail travel, updated for 21st century comforts and taste.

Children

The Belmond Andean Explorer welcomes guests of all ages on board.
