Climb aboard for 1- and 2-night adventures, passing through some of Peru’s most dramatic landscapes and ancient kingdoms. Explore the colonial cities of Cuzco and Arequipa, traverse the highest plains of the Andes, skirt the still waters of Lake Titicaca.

While admiring the spectacular scenery, relax with a Pisco Sour in the comfort of the Belmond lounge car or breathe in the crisp Andean air from the observation car.

    Seems little point to the Andean Explorer from Arequipa to Puno, as it’s in the dark. One of S America’s most scenic lines at night, really?

      Dear Mr Darroch,

      Thank you for your comment. The Belmond Andean Explorer itinerary has been designed to include all the highlights of the journey, and certainly while some of the travel will be during the night, not all of it will be, as the scenery is a major part of the journey.

      Kind regards,
