Overview & Highlights

This first class rail service, where you sleep on board in luxury cabins, is complemented by some of the country’s best hotels. Travel through the landscapes of Peru among the snow-draped Andean peaks at a relaxing pace, in tune with the environment.

  • Lima: Colonial city tour and Larco Museum
  • Sacred Valley: Excursion to Pisaq and Ollantaytambo
  • Machu Picchu: Guided tour
  • Cusco: City tour and Sacsayhuamán ruins
  • Visit the Inca site at Raqchi
  • Lake Titicaca : Uros Islands
  • Visit the Sumbay Caves near Lagunillas
  • Entrance fees to sites above included

Enhance the magic that is Peru on this sumptuous short holiday where you travel between the highlights by luxury train. You’ll get a different perspective on this country of such great variety, as you glide through countryside of fields bulging with fruit and vegetables and along wind-buffeted prairies rimmed by ice-jacketed Andean mountains.

Travel by train to and from Machu Picchu, perched on a saddle where the mountains descend to the Amazon jungle. Then from the Sacred Valley you board another luxury rail service. This is a train with a difference: you spend two nights actually sleeping on the train – not in a couchette, but a luxury fully furnished stateroom. The train will be halted at remote, utterly peaceful locations, where you can enjoy blissful, uninterrupted sleep. 

In Lima, Cusco and the Sacred Valley you will stay in first class hotels reflecting the same standard of luxury and service as the trains which are operated by Belmond, formerly Orient Express, whose prestigious history and experience in train travel means you will be in good hands.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

Overall the Tangara trip was well structured, if a little hectic moving on every two nights. It achieved its main objectives and we saw fascinating parts of South America that we had long wanted to see. Our guide, was most assiduous, knew the area very well and eased our path considerably. The highlights for us on Tangara were i) The trip to Chiloe, particularly with the services of an excellent nature guide, ii) the visit to Iguazu, iii) Buenos Aries, and iv) of course Rio de Janeiro.
