Inca Rail has announced the launch and rebranding of its fleet to “The Machu Picchu Trains by Inca Rail.” Inca Rail, a rail service from Cusco to Machu Picchu, now offers four different services aboard The Machu Picchu including: The 360° Machu Picchu Train, The Private Machu Picchu Train, The First-Class Machu Picchu Train and The Voyager Machu Picchu Train. Each carriage has been designed with new features and amenities as well as panoramic windows for travelers to take in the view.

Departing from Cusco or Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley, The Machu Picchu Trains take passengers on a route alongside the Vilcanota River, past snow-capped peaks and Peruvian landscapes before entering Inca Citadel, Machu Picchu. Now, travelers can now choose from The Machu Picchu Train’s new and upgraded services as outlined below:

The 360° Machu Picchu Train

This new train consists of six carriages and offers a stand-out observation deck with a bar and outdoor viewing platform as they ride through the Andes and otherwise inaccessible terrain. Passengers are treated to refreshments and a light meal, prepared with organic, locally sourced ingredients from the surrounding Sacred Valley. The 360° train offers a complimentary GPS activated audio guide with information on the journey, providing a deeper insight into the passing scenery including the Urubamba river valley, cloud forests, and Inca ruins.
