Head to Peru for a train journey filled with art, mythological design and of course, exceptional South American cuisine
South American adventures await. Belmond has launched ‘Art in Motion’, the Peru edition – collaborating with local experts and tastemakers in art, design and gastronomy to bring guests closer to contemporary Peruvian culture.
The artful adventures are brought to life with the unveiling of the re-imagined observation car by award-winning Peruvian artist and illustrator, Fito Espinosa – the first art installation on a train in South America.
Innovative new menus bring to life the vibrant culinary traditions and rich natural ingredients; and stylish new uniforms by Peruvian Fashion designer, Jose Miguel Valdivia celebrate the country’s creative, pioneering spirit.
Illustrating the train’s fantastical journey through sub-tropical forest and its spiritual connection with ancient Incan mythology, award-winning Peruvian artist Fito Espinosa, has given the Observation car a majestic makeover.
The 1920s style carriage has been adorned with celestial illustrations and playful artwork depicting the ethereal journey through the surrounding flora and fauna of the Andes, to the heart of the Inca Empire.
The new menu, inspired by the vibrant Peruvian landscapes that accompany the train route, is a diverse gastronomic experience. Dishes focus on traditional Peruvian flavours with a contemporary twist.
The exquisite lunch and dinner menus embrace ingredients offered by Pacha Mama (Mother Earth) from the nearby valleys and jungle.
Dishes include crispy fresh corn tartlet with goat’s cheese, avocado and Maras salt, grilled paiche with sacha inchi butter and fava bean puree and an indulgent Quillabamba coffee cheesecake made with the some of the finest Peruvian coffee.
Renowned Peruvian mixologist Aaron Diaz, founder of award-winning Carnaval Bar, has created an inspiring and diverse cocktail menu. Guests can try the exquisite serves on board Belmond Hiram Bingham, as the train embarks on the lively descent to Cusco.
The showstopping cocktails champion signature favourites with fresh Peruvian flair such as the refreshing Picaflor Andino with Pisco and citrus tastes, the delectable Belmond Swizzle with Cartavio Solera rum, coconut and pineapple and the uplifting Espresso Bingham inspired by the classic Espresso Martini – the all-new menu honours tradition but through an exciting new contemporary lens.
