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 parlour car that has been spaciously designed for exclusive use, 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, 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. As their private chef readies their meal, 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.
