Belmond doesn’t just create incredible hotels, it also hosts some of the world’s most awe-inspiring train journeys. As a travel correspondent based in South America, I was among the first to experience the new Belmond Andean Explorer. Gliding leisurely through Peru's most stunning sights, from pretty Arequipa to Lake Titicaca and atmospheric Cusco, I journeyed to an altitude of 14,000 feet, experiencing the understated luxury of this historic railway.
