A pioneer of luxury travel to Peru, Belmond has offered stylish journeys of discovery and one-of-a-kind travel experiences across this fascinating country since 1999.

With six beautiful hotels and two luxury trains, located close to the country's most spectacular sights and attractions - adventure lies around every corner.
Together, families can experience the drama of the snow-capped Andes as they travel on Belmond Andean Explorer, South America's first luxury sleeper train, the magic of condors soaring above Colca Canyon near Belmond Las Casitas, the vibrant colours of some of Cusco's greatest works of art in Belmond Hotel Monasterio and the lively beachfront by Lima's Belmond Miraflores Park.
To celebrate the release of PADDINGTON 2, Belmond is offering ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ adventurous travel packages - itineraries packed full of fun and themed activities to keep young cubs entertained.

The new four and seven-night packages aptly begin in Lima - where Paddington’s Aunt Lucy lives - at the city’s most stylish address, Belmond Miraflores Park. From the hotel’s rooftop, children can gaze across the ocean, dreaming of their upcoming adventure as they feast on sticky marmalade breakfast treats and get into character with their very own red bush hat courtesy of Belmond.
From Lima, the journey takes guests to Cusco, and one of the city’s most treasured landmarks - Belmond Hotel Monasterio. Families can explore the city on foot or spend time meandering through the hotel’s stunning courtyard, cloisters and flower-lined walkways, stopping to make a wish at the 300-year old cedar tree and mythical fountain. After a long day of sightseeing, children are invited to make bear-shaped cookies with the chef – a sweet-tasting stopover to help bear cubs re-charge for their next escapade.
Next on the itinerary is one of the most highly anticipated experiences in Peru; a journey to Machu Picchu aboard Belmond Hiram Bingham – the country’s most famous 1920s-inspired vintage train. Just as Paddington arrived into London by train, families will arrive by rail in unrivalled luxury, through wild river canyons and lush jungle, to the heart of the Inca Empire. Passengers will be gifted a special jar of organic marmalade with a map to spot where the most succulent Peruvian oranges are grown along route.
Before taking the train back down from Machu Picchu, guests spend a night at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel to be situated at the gates of the ancient citadel and overlooking the breath taking sacred peaks. Hidden within the tropical plantation and garden terrace are jars of marmalade, just waiting to be discovered by mini explorers.
Guests on the longer seven-night package are transported to the heart of the Sacred Valley and oasis of calm Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado, exclusively located on the shores of the Urubamba River. A special Paddington-themed ‘movies under the stars’ night offers family fun by the wild-running river, with cosy woollen blankets provided to wrap up warm, popcorn waiter service and dessert bar inspired by the film.
The four-night ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ package is priced from £2,400 per person and includes one night at Belmond Miraflores Park, two nights at Belmond Hotel Monasterio on B&B and one night full board at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, with one day train journey aboard Belmond Hiram Bingham and entrance to Machu Picchu, Paddington-themed activities across properties, transfers, and sightseeing tours and is valid for travel from now through 2018. The package does not include international and domestic flights, airport departure taxes and travel insurance. Prices per child are on request.
The seven-night ‘A Bear’s Life with Belmond’ package is priced at £3,620 per person and includes the above plus a second night at Belmond Miraflores Park and two nights at Belmond Rio Sagrado on B&B.
For those wishing to get aboard the very train that plays a starring role in Paddington 2, Belmond British Pullman is offering steam-hauled Paddington Afternoon Tea journeys departing London Victoria Station on 16th February and 7th April 2018. Prices start from £550, based on two adults and two children (under 16) travelling together. Visit Belmond.com for more information.
