Peru Luxury Rail - Andean Explorer and Vistadome

Client: PeruRail / Orient Express Hotels, Trains and Cruises

Project Title: Andean Explorer and Vistadome

Launch: 2001


Winner of the Creatividad Empresarial for an Outstanding Tourist Experience; the Andean Explorer is a luxury train running from Cusco to the famous ruins at Machu Picchu; to Puno and Lake Titicaca; to Arequipa and the Colca Canyon. The alternative Vistadome train carries visitors to and from Maccu Picchu with panoramic windows offering superb views.

JPA’s brief was to completely refurbish the train in the manner of the great Pullman trains of the 1920’s including dining cars and an open-air observation bar car which is unique in South America. JPA staff worked for extended periods in Peru, overseeing the final build of the train.
