by Maria Lisella


Belmond, a collection of luxury hotels, trains and river cruises worldwide, is introducing the first luxury sleeper train in South America as well as introducing two new barges that travel through France.

Belmond launches South America’s first luxury sleeper train, Belmond Andean Explorer, on May 4 in Peru. The Belmond Andean Explorer train travels along one of the highest train routes in the world, crossing through breathtaking cities on its way from Cusco to Lake Titicaca (Puno) and Arequipa, and exploring natural wonders and ancient kingdoms on one and two-night trips.

Belmond Afloat in France will introduce two new barges to their fleet of ships, Belmond Lilas and Belmond Pivoine, set to cruise the canals and rivers throughout Burgundy with private visits to family-owned vineyards and breweries and spectacular Châteaux.

Tip of the Day

A common scam involves a call from what is apparently the hotel front desk asking for your credit card number confirmation. When the number they claim to have is confirmed wrong, they request the correct number.
