Peru Train Tours

Travel by rail on the popular Sacred Valley train from Cuzco to Machu Picchu, or journey south on the Orient-Express to Lake Titicaca.

Train & Railway Travel to Machu Picchu & More

Discover the highlights of Peru by train with the Peru railway tours. Peru has nowadays some of the most breathtaking railroads that still operate passenger trains. Interested in the Train from Cuzco to Machu Picchu? Check out our Machu Picchu tours below, or contact our travel consultants for more train schedules and availability. The Hiram Bingham, operated by Orient Express, probably the most famous train to Machu Picchu.

Another rail line in Peru run by Orient Express connects the old Inca capital of Cusco with the Titikaka lake. It is a full day of landscapes: Snow capped mountains, lush green valleys and the great comfort of the well refurbished old railroad cars.

Lima, the capital of Peru is connected to Hunacayo in the Andean highlands through a train run by Ferrocarril Andino. Although it runs only twice a month, it is well worth working it into a rail tour of Peru. The many switch-backs that take the train from sea level to over 4000 m (over 12000 ft) are fascinating not only for the technically interested. Then there are the tunnels, that take you from tunnel to bridge to tunnel. Just do not close your eyes.

From Huancayo then, you can take the formerly narrow gauge railroad of the “Tren Macho” to Huancavelica. The line has been re-built recently and now is international gauge of 1435 mm and a through running to Lima for the freight trains is now technically possible.

If you are thinking about organizing a group for a rail tour through Peru you can also charter trains. That chartered train then can also run on lines that currently do not have passenger service like the wonderful railroad that connects the White City, Arequipa, with Lake Titikaka. Find below our South America tours that include Peru railway tours.
