Take a look inside the most luxurious train in South America


If you happen to be holidaying in Peru this summer, we’d highly recommend an extravagant train journey on the Belmond Andrean Explorer from Cusco to Arequipa. Debuting today on its two-night maiden voyage through the spectacular lands of Peru, the lavish carriage promises an itinerary brimming with snow-kissed mountains, colossal skies, majestic lakes and herds of alpacas, llamas and vicunas grazing on the altiplano.


A myriad of energetic tones and extensive windows grace the interiors reflecting authentic Peruvian culture.


At night don’t restrict yourself to the indoors and meander around the alfresco terrace waltzing to live Latin music.

From fresh traditional corn with exotic cheese, to alpaca tortellini and a mouthwatering creation of lime with melted chocolate and apple custard, executive gourmet chef, Diego Muñoz’s dishes are a gourmet delight!


For a culinary experience to savour, the chef will host a ceviche class set against the backdrop of rolling Andes alongside the train.


We’ve heard the land excursions are even more thrilling; especially the private tour of the floating islands on Lake Titicaca, and a delectable meal on a secluded beach with unprecedented views of the glacial peaks of La Paz, Bolivia.
