BELMOND ANDEAN EXPLORER

THE EPIC HIGHLANDS JOURNEY

The Belmond Andean Explorer provides a 4-Days dining experience that takes visitors of Perú to new culinary heights, as they sample our distinctive regional cuisine, inspired by the journey through the Peruvian Andes, at altitudes of up to 4,800 metres on route from Cusco to Arequipa. 

Belmond Andean Explorer caters up to 48 passengers, led by Sous Chef Carlos Risco and the team at Belmond Hotel Monasterio in Cusco, to create daily menus with simple regionally sourced produce, such as, fresh fish from the Moquegua coast, trout from Lake Arapa (located in the Puno region), broad beans and lemons from Cusco, mushrooms, beets and corn from the Sacred Valley, Peruvian native potatoes, and quinoa from the Altiplano.

CREATED BY THE EXECUTIVE CHEF DIEGO MUÑOZ, THE PLATES OF FOOD MIRROR THE YELLOWS AND GREENS OF THE LANDSCAPE ROLLING BY. DESERT IS A FROTHY APPLE FOAM, REFERENCING THE SNOWY PEAKS UP IN THE SKY, AND WE EXPERIENCE GLIMPSES OF AN ALWAYS-MOVING LANDSCAPE AS WE GLIDE TOWARDS PUNO
