There’s an observation car designed to allow you to take in the view of the Andes. Meals are served in the dining cars, which have the same atmospheres as upscale restaurants. The bar serves up a Peruvian classic called a Pisco Sour – the perfect cocktail for watching the sunset from your train window. You’ll find the bar in the lounge car, which also has comfortable couches and a piano. You can even visit the train’s spa car, for a little rejuvenation on your way to Machu Picchu.
After lunch on Day 1, you’ll stop for a tour of Raqchi, another important archeological Inca site. There’s an afternoon tea, followed by a stop at La Raya Pass. This offers a chance to browse some native handicrafts and super-soft alpaca wool.
