Three days and two nights on the Andean Express Train - Andean Plains and Islands of Discovery
Arequipa - Puno - Cuzco
Saturday to Monday
Evening departure from Arequipa with a cocktail reception followed by dinner before you tuck into your sumptuous cabin where you let the scenery lull you to sleep. Awake to the sunrise at Lake Titicaca and an early breakfast. A full day at Lake Titicaca, the world's highest navigable lake, awaits. Your full day of expertly guided excursions includes Taquile Island and Uros,
The Floating Islands. After a well-deserved deserved dinner, snuggle down for another night in your home away from home. After breakfast the next day, cross through deep valleys and high mountains where camelids graze in the wide open plains of the Altiplano. Stop in the village of Raqchi, also known as the Temple of Viracocha because of its emblematic constructions before arriving into the Cuzco station in the early afternoon.
Depart in the morning from Cuzco and travel across the Altiplano towards Puno. Stop in the village of Raqchi, also known as the Temple of Viracocha because of its emblematic constructions and La Raya, the highest point on the Cusco-Puno route at 4,335 meters above sea level, the perfect place to see the beautiful snow-capped Andes and the many llamas and vicunas roaming.
The final destination of the day is the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca. After a boat trip to the Floating (Uros) and Taquile Island embark for Arequipa, "The White City." On the way stop at the Sumbay Caves, home to Cave Paintings of Peru's first settlers. There is an optional trip to Colca Canyon, not included, before arriving into Arequipa where your guide will provide an extensive tour of the city.
