With its enthralling culture, quirky and tasty cuisine and natural wonders, Peru provides planners with a rich and exciting backdrop for creating unforgettable luxury incentives. And with a host of luxury properties and trains in the destination, Belmond can help bring Peru’s magic to your group…

Culture

The Belmond Andean Explorer travels between Cusco and Arequipa; it can accommodate groups of up to 70 and can be chartered (9 Suite Cabins, 17 Twin Bed Cabins, 9 Bunk Bed Cabins. The train journey captures the wonder of the landscape but also offers many interesting outings. Guests can visit the floating islands of Uros, which is reached by traditional boat. These man-made islands, constructed from interwoven reeds, are unique to the region. The villagers also use these reeds for their homes, ships and tools.

Another sight not to be missed is world-famous Machu Picchu, which can be reached in style aboard the Belmond Hiram Bingham. The train accommodates 84 people and can be chartered. Traditional food is served, and live music played throughout the journey. A convivial atmosphere and unforgettable moments are guaranteed.

In Cusco, the glittering San Antonio Abad chapel is a unique feature of Belmond Hotel Monasterio. The chapel boasts grandiose gold-plated artefacts inside its walls. Thanks to a private entrance, this is a fantastic option for a group event, complete with welcome drinks and a guide.

Nature
