Peru by rail

Peru is a fantastic country full of beautiful scenery; fabulous food, and wonderful people, and starting in May 2017 there is a new journey you can take which sounds fabulous. Many people enjoy the scenery by trekking through the Andes, but if that's not for you how does a luxury train ride sound?

Luxury rail and hotel company Belmod has announced that the Belmond Andean Explorer will launch next spring, and will travel along the Peruvian Andes from Cusco (pictured above) to the beautiful Lake Titicaca.

This is one of the highest rail routes in the world, and the train will accommodate 68 guests who can chose from double; twin and bunk cabins, each with its own ensuite.  The train will have two dining cars, an observation car with an open-air deck and a lounge car.

Having travelled parts of this route by foot on route I can't recommend it highly enough, and I may consider it myself - it might be nice to do it in luxury this time rather than tents!
