Inca Rail has launched the ultimate way to journey to Machu Picchu in style – with an entirely exclusive luxury train carriage


Tribal travellers and groups of up to eight now have the option to exclusively hire an entire luxury train carriage for their private use for the journey of a lifetime to Machu Picchu.

Inca Rail has recently introduced The Private service, a completely remodelled and refurbished parlour car that’s been spaciously designed for exclusive use. Ideal for travelling in style, the car comes complete with its own bar, open balcony, lounge seating area, upholstered armchairs and dining tables placed next to wide, UV protected windows.

Operating on the route between Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, this luxurious experience is ideal for reclining. The Private comes with two butlers and a chef, who will serve a tasting menu using the finest local ingredients paired with South America’s best wines.

After checking in for their journey at Inca Rail’s newly opened VIP waiting lounge at Ollantaytambo station, passengers boarding The Private are welcomed with a bottle of Champagne as the train departs for the 90 minute journey to Machu Picchu. Travellers can step out onto the train’s open balcony to drink in the fresh air and views of the Urubamba River and soaring Andes mountain range.

Commenting on the introduction of The Private service, Armando Pareja, Chief Executive Officer of Inca Rail said, “The introduction of The Private is another step in our plan to transform the trip to Machu Picchu for all our passengers from a simple rail journey into an unforgettable experience on the most up-to-date fleet in the country.

Every aspect of The Private, from the colourful textiles we use for the décor to the ingredients in our food is intended to evoke the colours and flavours of the Andean culture.”
