Named after the explorer who rediscovered Machu Picchu, the Hiram Bingham offers a magical journey to this impressive citadel.
Experience the colonial elegance of this luxurious train journey as you watch the landscape unfold from the comfortable observation car and enjoy live music and entertainment on board. Few rail journeys can rival the Cusco to Machu Picchu Railway, with the small villages, Inca terraces, snowy mountain peaks and crashing rivers that line this rail track.
Depart from Poroy Station just outside of Cusco and admire the scenery as the train squeezes through the narrow Pomotales Gorge and drops down into Sacred Valley. Upon arrival in Aguas Calientes, a bus exclusively for Hiram Bingham passengers will take you up to Machu Picchu for your exclusive guided tour.
Life on Board
Decorated in the style of the 1920s Pullman Carriages of the Orient Express, the Hiram Bingham recreates and old world elegance furnished with polished wood and comfortable armchairs.
A delicious brunch or dinner is included (depending on the direction of your journey) served in the wonderfully appointed dining car and paired with a premium selection of South American Wines. The lively bar car is an excellent place to sip a pisco sour as you listen to the live on board band to wind down the evening.
After your exclusive tour of South America's most enchanting sight, enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea at Belmond's Sanctuary Lodge Hotel, located at the entrance of Machu Picchu.
