2 days 2 nights: Arequipa – Lake Titicaca – Cusco
Travel from Arequipa to Cusco in unforgettable style. Savour the unforgettable indulgence of the Belmond Andean Explorer train as you are whisked through Peru’s most spectacular destinations, including the spellbinding Lake Titicaca.
The Andean Plains and Islands of Discovery journey departs every Saturday night.
Board the train in the Baroque city of Arequipa. Take some time to get comfortable in your cabin and acclimatise to the indulgent atmosphere of the train as you begin your journey towards Puno.
Then take your seat in one of the elegant dining cars for your first dinner on board. Relax and savour refined Andean dishes served with contemporary flair.
After dinner, why not head to the bar car and enjoy a cocktail as you get to know your fellow travellers.
Awake early for a spellbinding experience as you witness the sunrise across Lake Titicaca. Breakfast is served on board; the perfect set up for a day full of adventure.
This afternoon we explore Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world. The beautiful lake is home to many diverse islands, each boasting a unique way of life.
First we take a traditional boat to Uros, a man-made island artfully constructed from interwoven reeds which are constantly being replenished. The people who live on the island use the same reeds to create homes, ships and tools.
Continue your exploration to Taquile Island, notable for its stunning agricultural terraces. The people here follow a social code that has been barely touched by time, and their handwoven fabrics are regarded as the best in Peru. Enjoy lunch at Collata beach, followed by a performance from local dancers and a demonstration of artisans at work.
Return to the station at the lake for a delicious afternoon tea. Board the train and relax as the journey continues on to Cusco. As evening descends enjoy another tempting dinner in the dining carriage.
Wake to a delicious breakfast, accompanied by stunning views as the train sets off from Marangani.
Along the way, disembark to visit Raqch’i. Once an important Inca settlement, today this fascinating archaeological site boasts many architectural gems.
All too soon we arrive at Cusco, the former capital of the Inca empire. Bid farewell to your crew and disembark for your onward travel arrangements.
