South America

From the snow-dusted peaks of the Andean altiplano to the fertile winelands or coastlines, South America’s train tracks cross some of the most varied and jaw-dropping scenery in the world. For seeing the sights in serious comfort, a train journey is unrivalled; what better way to view the majesty of the landscapes than from a tranquil carriage as you dart across the vast distances with ease. Imagine exploring the beautiful Inca ruins of Machu Picchu and then retreating to a luxury cabin, with an en suite bathroom – or perhaps the ‘white city’ of Arequipa, the former Inca capital of Cusco, the unfathomable depths of Colca Canyon.

Travelling by train evokes a sense of old-fashioned nostalgia, but recent investment in rail means you’ll travel on board modern trains with fine-dining, spa services and piano bars.

Train Journeys through South America

Belmond Andean Explorer

Belmond hotels are some of the finest in the world, and the Belmond Andean Explorer train is no different. The luxurious locomotive speeds through the Peruvian altiplano in the utmost comfort – 16 midnight blue and silver carriages providing the perfect way to view the lofty mountain scenery. Travelling at altitude adds an adventurous dimension to the journey, but you can rest assured that after your tours and excursions, you’ll return to finest suites decorated in textured leather and alpaca wool, gourmet cuisine featuring locally-inspired flavours, and a spa car where you can enjoy soothing massages. Along the way you may find yourself gazing at Andean condors soaring on thermals, the breeze whispering through the reeds on Lake Titicaca, the colourful handicrafts of traditional markets. Journey between the fine cities of Peru’s Inca heartland in the most magnificent way.
