Belmond Andean Explorer: Peruvian scenery
(toll free) 8000 3570 2891
Tracing an almost three-hundred-kilometre route from Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, to Cuzco (and vice-versa), the award-winning Andean Explorer weaves its way through canyons, lakes and mountainous highland, passing traditional townships overflowing with Peruvian children chasing the train’s tail on its ten-hour journey. There is something almost post-apocalyptic about the predominantly deserted, barren terrain that graces the tracks of the Andean Explorer. Far from ugly, the landscape of seemingly endless yellow grassland, dotted with wild alpaca, llamas and flamingos, is staggeringly beautiful. On board, there is an elegant Bar Car and an Observation Car, part of which is open-air, perfect for viewing the brooding scenery of open flatland, peppered with derelict churches and old abandoned ships, while on-board entertainment includes musical performances, dancers and fashion shows.
There are no overnight carriages on the train; instead, a series of opulent Dining Cars and comfortable Day Cars, including a Bar Car, offer the perfect venues from which to enjoy the fabulous scenery.
