LIKE A TRAIN RIDE IN A WES ANDERSON MOVIE: THE BELMOND EXPLORER IN SOUTH AMERICA

Wes Anderson in Peru

In May, the Belmond Andean Explorer departed on its inaugural journey from Cusco to Arequipa, Peru. Definitely setting a new level of luxury for rail travel. The elegant carriages take you through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, offering vast, uninterrupted views of snow-capped mountains, enormous skies, majestic lakes and herds of alpacas and llamas grazing on the hills. Now, take a look at the interior, it feels just like a Wes Anderson movie come true!

COLORFUL INTERIOR

Interior designs reflect Peruvian culture, mixing vibrant colors and rough textures with natural tones. The large picture windows offer an ever-changing scenery as the train wends through the Andes. I can’t wait to make this experience with the girls next year!
