This option is perfect for those who don’t have much time to visit Machu Picchu and who want to arrive in a more leisurely fashion than the trekkers.
The train departs from Cusco and takes you on one of the most incredible train journeys to reach the magnificent site of Machu Picchu!!
The views from the train are quite spectacular. Peru Rail have commissioned Vistadome or backpacker trains to allow you to enjoy the view to it’s full potential.

In the morning, we will pick you up from your Hotel and take you to the train station.  After a 4-hour journey of majestic views you arrive at Aguas Calientes (Hot Springs Town) where you will spend the night. There will be plenty of time to relax if you want to have a hot bath in the natural springs. The day is yours!
Visit the Machu Picchu ‘Manuel Chavez Ballón’ museum and orchid exhibition. It is a very illustrative museum that gives an interesting introduction to Machu Picchu.
