baex_300x143_destination04Belmond has announced the 2017 launch of South America’s first luxury sleeper train, the Belmond Andean Explorer, in Peru.

The new train, which is expected to hit the rails in May next year, is set to travel along one of the highest rail routes on earth moving through the Peruvian Andes from Cusco to Lake Titicaca and Arequipa, exploring natural wonders and ancient kingdoms on one and two night journeys.

Belmond specialise in ultra luxurious travel adventures and the new train will enable guests to experience some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. The new Belmond Andean Explorer has been designed to connect guests with the abundant nature of the Peruvian Andes. The interior design by Inge Moore of The Gallery HBA has been inspired by the texture of the country’s hand-woven fabrics, and the soft tones of the Alpaca wool blended with Andean slate greys, creates a sense of calm enabling guests to relax and enjoy a luxurious journey.
