The Belmond Hiram Bingham luxury train offers exclusive journeys through the magical Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu, Peru. Named after the explorer who rediscovered the Inca citadel, the luxury train can carry up to 84 passengers. Its two plush Dining Cars, Observation Car and Bar Car evoke the style of 1920s Pullman carriages, featuring highly polished woods and brass, and sumptuous armchairs making your trip through Peru even more special.
From Poroy, near the ancient city of Cusco, to the Lost City of Machu Picchu, a trip on the Belmond Hiram Bingham takes you through the most romantic scenery in Peru.
A journey on the Belmond Hiram Bingham starts or finishes in Poroy, 20 minutes from the ancient capital city of Cusco. In Cusco’s main square you’ll find an array of colourful stalls framed by curious, charming stone walkways and streets. Delve a little deeper and discover beautiful little arcades with boutiques selling local crafts.
On the journey to the lost city, the train runs through Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The beautiful valley, known as 'Vilcamayo' to the Incas, stretches out from the Inca citadels of Pisac to Ollantaytambo along the Urubamba River or 'Sacred River'.
Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas, is one of the most famous examples of Inca architecture. The ruins, located in a lush jungle, are believed to have been built in the mid-15th century. Lost in history, they were not discovered until 1911 by the American explorer, Hiram Bingham to which the train is named after.
On your journey you will travel from the beautiful city of Cuzco to the Lost city of Machu Picchu. You will be able to soak in the beautiful Peruvian countryside landscape along the way from the view on your observation car that is incomparable to any other Machu Picchu experience.
