See more of Peru on Belmond’s Andean Explorer

Discover pioneering luxury and breathtaking rural mountainscapes on the world’s highest rail route

Fresh, bold and wild, Andean Explorer arrives on the horizon in striking style as the first luxury sleeper train in South America. The silky midnight-blue livery of the train’s 16 carriages shimmers against the backdrop of Peru’s lofty landscapes as it soars across the Andean plains.

Breathe in crisp evening air from the train’s open deck with the majestic La Raya mountain range rising into view. The menu is as colourful as the scenery, with seasonal dishes prepared using fresh local ingredients. Connect with fellow guests in the lounge car and sip a pisco sour to the tune of sweet piano melodies. Retreat to the spa car for a reviving Andean ritual and soothing massage. Then retire to your en-suite cabin for a restful night’s sleep—tomorrow brings new adventures. Unveil the spirit of Peru with an awe-inspiring escape on Andean Explorer.

Travel with Belmond, and they’ll help make your dream itinerary a reality.

South America’s first luxury overnight train will be back on the rails from March 31, 2022. Get ready to experience the world’s highest train route and revel in Peru’s breathtaking landscapes.


As the train gathers pace, slow down in a Peruvian-inspired sanctuary. Rich artisanal accents and furnishings create a serene backdrop from which to observe the rugged landscape outside.

Pen the day’s adventures from your own writing table, or settle down for a nap on plush alpaca wool. Choose from three cabin types, each with its own en-suite.


Traverse the Andes in a haven of Peruvian-inspired comfort

In contrast to the striking landscape that glides past, each twin or double cabin offers a soothing blend of signature Peruvian accents and in-built oxygen for additional comfort at high altitudes. Hand-woven fabrics and soft, Alpaca-style textures invite a leisurely rest. An en suite bathroom and shower permit luxurious bathing––even at 4,000ft.
