Creating unforgettable journeys

DestinationCusco – Machu Picchu

Cusco never rests. Its ancient past pulses through its streets, squares, and valleys. No one is left unmoved by the mark left by its history and the sophisticated Inca engineering that mastered stone molding like few other cultures have done. And there is no greater proof of this than the citadel of Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu is considered Peru’s most important tourist destination and one of the most-visited sites worldwide. Situated at 2,360 meters above sea level, in the Urubamba River Valley, Machu Picchu dazzles all who visit it with its beauty and mystery. PeruRail offers a comfortable and original way of reaching the famed Inca sanctuary on our Belmond Hiram Bingham, Vistadome, and Expedition trains.

DestinationPuno – Lake Titicaca

The city of Puno is forever marked by the presence of Lake Titicaca, its defining emblem in the minds of many. Lake Titicaca was considered by the Incas to be a sacred site, with its beautiful natural and man-made islands. Not only that, but it is also the highest navigable lake in the world (at over 3,800 meters above sea level).

Puno is more than just Lake Titicaca, though. Puno is chullpas (traditional circular buildings); it is dances and rituals; it is its Quechua and Aymara past; it is the Feast of Our Lady of Candelaria. Puno oozes tourism wherever you cast your gaze.

To travel to Lake Titicaca aboard the Andean Explorer train is to travel in the present day on a journey to the ancient past, where visitors can immerse themselves in Inca culture and all the mysteries and wonders at their disposal, waiting to be visited and experienced today. Purchase your train tickets from Cusco to Puno or from Puno to Cusco here.
