VISTADOME TRAIN to Machu Picchu – Train Trip Highlights and Daily Departures

There are several great options for visitors to go to Machu Picchu on a round trip by train; this time we will talk about the wonderful Vistadome Train, a top traveling experience in Cusco for the 2017 and 2018 season.

The Inca empire evolved in one of the most privileged geographical spaces of the world: the Andes mountain range. These highlands are of astonishing beauty, with massive green mountains and snowies, beautiful valleys and rivers, lush vegetation, wide open skies and unique, thrilling flora and fauna; last but not least, the energy of nature can be felt in a strong way, relaxing and invigorating people. Of course, Machu Picchu is the synthesis of it all.

Vistadome Train Highlights

The Vistadome train ride takes all these facts up, for it is designed to allow passengers to have the best connection with Andean nature: wide, panoramic windows and ceilings, on an overall elegant, comfortable and futuristic interior design. Early in the morning we’ll pick you at the hotel in Cusco city and go to the Poroy train station, where the Vistadome train will be ready; from there, an unforgettable 3 hours and 50 minutes journey until the Aguas Calientes village, which is next to the Machu Pïcchu citadel. This ride goes across the most wonderful Andean landscapes, being awe-inspiring, relaxing, reviving, educational and delightful, all at once.

But this amazing experience with Andean nature is not the only thing you will enjoy while traveling aboard the Vistadome train; there will also be two great events:

  • A fashion show of fine, trendy alpaca-made garments, the ideal clothing for cold seasons anywhere in the world
  • A typical Andean music show, with dancers wearing traditional costumes from Cusco

Once arriving at Aguas Calientes (also known as Machu Picchu station), we will take a bus up to the Machu Picchu citadel, for an espectacular professionally guided tour of the Inca sanctuary and luxury retreat; after the regular tour, you will be given free time to continue exploring the citadel at your own leisure, enjoying the landscapes and taking wonderful pictures.

When it’s time to return to Cusco city, the thrill won’t be over yet! We will go back to Aguas Calientes on bus and there take the Vistadome train to the Poroy train station, but on this returning journey you could continue enjoying the many comforts the Vistadome has to offer, like typical and international food and drinks. We surely recommend you try our top Peruvian gastronomy, with a top on board service.
