Hiram Bingham & Andean Explorer Trains

Trip Synopsis

Embark on an extraordinary eight-day, seven-night journey through South America's stunning mountain landscapes to Peru's most captivating Andean destinations, including Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, and Arequipa. The adventure begins in the heart of Cusco, from where you board the Hiram Bingham Train to the mystical Machu Picchu. Following a private tour of Machu Picchu, indulge in a delectable dinner aboard the luxurious Belmond Hiram Bingham train as you return to Cusco.

The voyage continues on the opulent Belmond Andean Explorer sleeper train, renowned as one of the most magnificent train journeys in the world. This train transports you through the mountainous region to Puno, a charming town on Lake Titicaca's shores, where the Uros' Floating Islands await your exploration. The final stretch of your journey leads to Arequipa, Peru's second-largest city. It's worth noting that the Andean Explorer Train is the sole passenger train navigating the railroad from Puno to Arequipa. Your luxury train escapade concludes with a city tour in Arequipa.

In essence, this is the quintessential Peruvian train expedition! Don't merely rely on our endorsement — this Andean train tour is a must-experience adventure!
