TRENDS IN TRAVEL: HOT DESTINATION
An Inca citadel in the 15th and 16th centuries, Machu Picchu wasn’t on most of the world’s radar until it was ‘discovered’ by Hiram Bingham in 1911.
With its breathtaking views of the Andes and improbably-located ruins, it’s truly a sight to behold. From 5 star luxury properties to sights to explore this incredible country allow those that seek peace and solitude the surrounding picturesque nature.
Though there are direct trains that take travellers to Machu Picchu all the way from Cusco, Inca Rail offers a private chartered service from the Sacred Valley town of Ollantaytambo.
An obvious favourite of A-listers seeking privacy - past stars to charter it have included Gwyneth Paltrow (with kids Apple and Moses), Mick Jagger, Bono, and David Guetta, as well as foreign leaders - the Inca Princess provides an entire private car attended by a dedicated staff of three for the one hour and 45-minute-long journey.
