Andean Explorer: Peruvian Highlands


Journey through Peru's magnificent landscape in style, on board the new Andean Explorer luxury train. New for May 2017, the Andean Explorer is the first luxury sleeper train in South America. On the journey, indulge in beautifully designed cabins inspired by Peruvian tradition, enjoy fine dining in two Restaurant Cars with fresh, local ingredients, relax in the Lounge Car with its bar and baby grand piano, and watch the scenery pass by on the Observation Car's open deck. Framed by luxury, this round-trip adventure from Lima and into the heart of Peru will leave you in awe.

On this journey, you will step into the ruins of the Inca Empire and learn about its might. This tour includes a visit to Machu Picchu, one of the most recognizable destinations in the world. You will also visit Lake Titicaca and be welcomed by the local communities, learning about the people who have lived on this lake for centuries. Glorious landscapes, warm cultures, magnificent ruins, and historic cities all await on this journey into the Peruvian Highlands.
