IRT Abroad: Tracking South America’s Newest Rail Stars
IRT President Eleanor Hardy makes tracks next week for South America.
She’ll also stay at some of the region’s finest Virtuoso partner properties, including Mashpi Lodge — one of National Geographic’s “Lodges of the World” — deep in Ecuador’s ethereal cloud forest.
“Nice work if you can get it,” you might say.
But it’s not all fun. Eleanor will be hard at work documenting her surroundings, the better to help South American-bound IRT travelers.
IRT was last in the Peruvian Andes almost 10 years ago to the day — long before Belmond’s latest venture came on the scene. Says Eleanor,
“I can’t wait to rediscover Peru — and to experience Ecuador for the first time.”
IRT’s June group trip to Peru featuring the Belmond Andean Explorer is long sold out. But not to worry.
Independent departures are still available through early December. And we’ll announce departures for next year as soon as we have the info.
So keep a sharp eye out for updates from Eleanor.
Meanwhile, email us for more information on how to book your own Peruvian or Ecuadorean adventure. Space on both trains is limited and sells out far in advance.
Or call us at (800) 478-4881; (502) 897-1725. We look forward to helping you make your South American dream trip a reality!
