There is exciting news for luxury travellers heading to South America, with the announcement of the new Belmond Andean Explorer – the continent's first luxury sleeper train. Belmond invites couples to experience a holiday like no other, seeing South America in a unique and opulent way. 

Traversing some of the world's most unique and breathtaking destinations, couples are offered a choice of four unforgettable journeys across the Peruvian Andes from May 2017.
