Journey to the world of the Incas in unmatched luxury

History & culture | Rail journey

There are few places on Earth as spectacular as Machu Picchu in Peru – an ancient Incan citadel nestled amid majestic Andean peaks. And, there’s no better way to reach it than with a train ride aboard the Belmond Hiram Bingham. With its elegant 1920s Pullman-style carriages – all dark wood, polished brass and classic blue-and-gold livery – it’s the ultimate tribute to the golden age of travel.

Named after the American explorer who rediscovered the ‘lost city’ in 1911, the train rattles through the Andes from the city of Cusco, transporting guests in unmatched style to Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu Pueblo, from where it’s just a short transfer to the ruins themselves.

The journey really is something to savour, as you begin with a delicious cocktail, followed by brunch and a gourmet lunch while the ever-changing landscapes drift past your window. And, the return trip is just as special, as you retrace your steps to Cusco while being treated to a true fine-dining experience as the day draws to a close. What’s more, all meals are accompanied by a selection of non-premium beverages and a superb wine list, and between meals you’ll enjoy traditional live music performances and the chance to absorb the scenery from the observation car.

Please note, that between 2nd January and 30th April 2019, an amended service will run, with a bus bringing clients between Cusco and the Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado in the Sacred Valley, where you’ll board the train for the final leg.
