Andean Explorer Train to Puno
This epic 10hr rail journey traverses the dramatic high plains of southern Peru in style; aboard the luxurious Andean Explorer Train from the old Inka capital of Cusco to Puno on sparkling Lake Titicaca.
In the morning we will be transferred to Cusco Train station to board the Andean Explorer Luxury train service to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca.
As we coast along the Andean plains on this luxurious train, we will feel as if transported to a bygone era when train travel was an exclusive and romantic means of transportation.

The journey begins passing along river valleys framed by dramatic Andean peaks before the countryside levels out to undulating plains. We may have chance of seeing some of the animals. The high plains are home to llamas, alpacas, guanacos and the route is dappled with varieties of hardy cactus.
