Junior Double Bed Cabin:+
  • Size: 13m²
  • Room View: Ever-changing views of the Peruvian scenery
  • Facilities: These roomy cabins are amongst the largest accommodation available on board the Belmond Andean Explorer and are exactly the same size as a Deluxe Double Bed Cabin, but with a slightly smaller en suite bathroom and larger lounge area. Each cabin has a double bed, seating area with two comfortable armchairs and a table.

Property Highlights:+
Culture & History

Belmond Andean Explorer traverses some of the most fascinating regions of Peru, and visits some of its most historic and culturally significant locations. Cuzco is, perhaps, the most cosmopolitan and diverse of Peru's cities, featuring beautifully ornate Spanish Colonial buildings, Incan ruins and terraces, galleries and contemporary restaurants that attract younger travellers in search of an adventure that is both trendy and culturally enriching. Lake Titicaca is the largest expanse of water in South America, featuring an archipelago of floating islands, while Puno, next to the lake, is charming and reputedly has the best bars in Peru. Of course, Peru is also known for its centuries-old Incan culture and there are lots of fascinating archeological sites that are worthy of exploration, including Raqch'i.

Dining & Gourmet

The cuisine-of-the-moment is most definitely Peruvian, and travellers to Peru can experience the confluence of influences that inspire the tasty, fusion-style, dishes, including Italian, Spanish, African and Asian. This fascinating fusion combines pasta, hearty stews and marinated barbecued meats, including Cuy (commonly known as guinea pig). Potatoes, avocados and ceviche are the nation's most synonymous culinary offerings, while Pisco Sours cover off the national drink, mixing Pisco, egg white, syrup, Angostura bitters and lemon juice over ice.

Rail Travel

Belmond Andean Explorer is the first luxury train in South America that has sleeper cabins. Offering a selection of four, one- or two-night itineraries that traverse the spectacular Peruvian scenery - Peruvian Highlands, Andean Plains & Islands of Discovery, Spirit of the Water and Spirit of the Andes - guests on board can enjoy a wonderfully luxurious experience on the train, such as gourmet dining and spa treatments, as well as excursions to a selection of Peru's most spectacular sites and landmarks, including Cuzco, Lake Titicaca, Puna and Colca Canyon, one of the world's deepest. While in Peru, it would be remiss not to consider visiting one of the most incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world - Machu Picchu. It takes approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes to travel to Machu Picchu from Cuzco by train, so you could complete a round trip in a day, or why not enjoy a stay at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, overlooking the mesmerising ruins?
