Come for the panoramic views of the Andean Highlands and the Sacred Valley, and stay for the onboard fashion show. PeruRail's Vistadome is not your average train ride. Finally have a moment to unplug as you literally surround yourself in the scenery of the country — what makes the Vistadome extra special is that it is almost completly fully surrounded in glass. Save for a few feet of the cieling that was necessary for air vents and lighting, your oversized window curves up and proceeds to form the better part of the side and top of your rail car.
Just when you think this ride couldn't get more pleasurable it does. You'll enjoy the assistance of knowledgeable and friendly attendants, as well as:
- Refreshments, including a light snack made from local ingredients and a complimentary beverage.
- A fashion show featuring creations made from alpaca wool (if you're making a return trip).
- The opportunity to learn about Andean culture watch a live dance performance.
Please ensure that your on-board luggage must weigh no more than 11 pounds (5 kg), so a backpack or carry-on of 62 inches (157 cm) length, width, and height is advised. On-board luggage is an honour-based system; train attendants will not be checking the weight of each individual bag, so please adhere to this rule. For good measure, you are advised to leave the brunt of your luggage in hotel storage and retrieve it upon your return (if going round-trip). If this is a one-way trip, then oversized baggage must be transported via another train at a cost of US$1.80/kg (2.2 pounds). The maximum overflow luggage amount is 22 pounds or 10 kg.
Be sure to bring your camera, but don't spend your entire trip behind the lens! Make the most of your time on the Vistadome, and enjoy the Peruvian landscape one mile at a time.
