Travel the Andean Explorer
South America’s first luxury sleeper train races along one of the highest train routes in the world, resulting in unparalleled views of the Peruvian mountains. The Andean Explorer combines daytime explorations with cosy accommodation options as you take in this breathtaking country and traverse the highest plains of the Andes. It’s the ultimate Peruvian escape, taking you to magnificent cities, UNESCO World Heritage sites and beautiful landscapes.
From Cusco, the Andean Explorer travels through the Andes to the beautiful Lake Titicaca and the UNESCO city of Arequipa. The 3 day, 2 night train ride makes stops at the ancient Inca site of Raqch’I, the culturally rich Lake Titicaca, the Sumbay Caves and the impressive city of Arequipa. You’ll get the chance to see the sunset over the La Roya Mountain range, take a boat ride to the Eros Islands and see 8,000 year old cave paintings. Take the journey even further by adding in the sweeping beauty of the Colca Canyon or a tour of Arequipa’s old city. Step aboard this luxurious train and see Peru in an exceptional way.
Alejandro Velasco Astete International Airport is less than 10 minutes from Cusco’s city centre, with flights arriving from cities in Peru as well as Bogota, La Paz and Santiago. Most travellers arrive via Lima that sees arrivals directly from Montreal, Toronto, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas and Miami, as well as a few European cities. Once in Lima, travellers have the option of flying to Cusco or travelling overland by bus, making a stop to see the Paracas National Reserve and the Nazca Lines.
