Itinerary details


1 nightLIMA

Fly into the beautiful colonial city of Lima, Peru’s capital, where you’ll start your Peru holiday in style at one of our favourite hotels here - Belmond Miraflores Park. Make the most of the lip-smacking cuisine, the spa and the lovely rooftop pool, with its stunning views over the city and the Pacific Ocean. As the sun sets, enjoy a pisco sour in the cocktail bar – if that doesn’t get rid of your jet lag, we don’t know what will!

Rested and refreshed, today you’ll board a flight from Lima to Iquitos, and descend several thousand metres to Peru’s tropical jungle lowlands. Hop onboard the luxurious Delfin II for three incredible nights of cruising through the pristine wilderness of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, uncovering its secrets with an expert naturalist guide. During your cruise, visit local villages, enjoy rainforest hikes, go kayaking, swim with pink river dolphins and experience thrilling night-time tours of the jungle.

Fly to Cusco via Lima and head on to the Sacred Valley of the Incas, which is simply magical – don’t just take our word for it, find out for yourself! Drink it all in with two nights at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba, which has beautiful, spacious rooms with fantastic views, and is surrounded by the Andean mountains, wonderfully preserved Inca villages, and living Inca culture. As well as sampling some traditional Peruvian cooking, we can organise whitewater rafting and trips to little-visited archaeological sites.

From the Sacred Valley, board the Belmond Hiram Bingham train at Poroy for one of the world’s most magnificent train journeys. The train cuts through the Andes past rivers and tiny villages to reach Machu Picchu. Spend a day exploring this most famous of all Inca sites on a private tour, before staying the night at the exclusive Belmond Sanctuary Lodge right at the gates to Machu Picchu (surely one of the most stunning hotel settings in the world) - you’ll have the place to yourself the following morning.

2 nightsCUSCO

The next evening, take the Belmond Hiram Bingham back to Poroy. Onboard, you’ll be treated to cocktails and a four-course dinner, before being met at the other end and transferred to Cusco. Enjoy a luxurious, oxygenated room at the decadent Belmond Hotel Monasterio for two nights. This lovely ‘museum hotel’ was built on Inca foundations, and is an ideal base from which to explore the fascinating former capital of the Inca empire, and enjoy the buzzing nightlife in one of Latin America's most compelling cities.

After you’ve had your fill of Cusco, spend two memorable nights onboard the Belmond Andean Explorer in a comfortable private cabin. Peru’s first luxurious sleeper train will take you on one of the highest train journeys in the world, past some of its most spectacular scenery, from the Andes plains, where you might see South American camelids grazing, to Lake Titicaca and the dramatic crevasses of Colca Canyon, before arriving at historic Arequipa. Enjoy exquisite meals in the dining carriage and head to the observation car to make the most of the spectacular ever-changing scenery.
