Departure Date: 01/12/2019
Sail through the verdant Galapagos Islands before discovering the authentic Inca highlights of Peru on this South American adventure. You’ll explore Charles Darwin’s living laboratory on board a luxury vessel in the Galapagos Islands, taste the best of Peru’s cuisine in Lima, discover the ancient Inca Empire in Cusco and the Sacred Valley and see the extraordinary sight of sun rise over the World Wonder of Machu Picchu.
The Galapagos Islands acted as inspiration for Darwin and is likely to do the same for you. Adorable seals, lethargic turtles, spectacular Blue-Footed boobies and nonchalant sharks and rays reside in the archipelago, characterized by lava fields, volcanic craters, lagoons, white sandy beaches and azure waters. Explore the sheer wonder of the island and visit the Galapaguera Turtle Breeding Center to learn about the conservation methods as well as meet some of the slow-moving residents.
Then on to Cusco. From the Temple of the Sun and Cathedral to the Inca Citadel of Sacsayhuaman and all the secret stops in between, Cusco is just ripe with historical stops and archaeological sites. The Inca capital is also home to a number of incredible restaurants and romantic bars that will keep you entertained all night. Use your free time to roam the city and soak up the electric atmosphere.
Explore the unfathomable scenery, history and archaeology of the Sacred Valley, surrounded by the peaks of the Andes. The days are filled to the brim with unforgettable views and cultural strongholds, but you can take everything in at a leisurely pace! In addition to Inca ruins, you’ll see locals work the looms to produce those iconic textiles, visit Peru’s liveliest artisans’ market and enjoy a couple of gourmet meals along the way.
Watch the sun rise over Machu Picchu in one of the quietest hours of the day. You’ll have this profound experience almost entirely to yourself, before hiking to the peak of one of the two limited entrance mountains surrounding Machu Picchu for an unrivalled bird’s eye view of the Inca city. Your private guide will provide you with all the facts, figures and legends while making sure you avoid the crowds to get the most from this once in a lifetime experience.
