Inca Rail Inaugurates Peru’s Most Scenic Train to Machu Picchu
Inca Rail launched a new Machu Picchu train this March, the 360° Machu Picchu Train. The train offers some of the most scenic views en route to Machu Picchu, with dome-like high visibility panoramic windows with built-in UV protection.
The train carriages will be fully interconnecting, freeing passengers to move between the carriages to an open-air observation area at the centre of the train. By summer, passengers will also able to download a GPS-activated app at the start of their journey, which will provide information on local culture, history and the passing countryside. An onboard trolley service will feature local offerings of a light snack or lunch reflecting the seasons and local regions. The train will carry up to 248 passengers each day on two routes between Poroy and Machu Picchu, and between Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu.
