On this spectacular small-group journey to South America, travel to the continent’s most extraordinary works of nature and humankind. First, explore the Sacred Valley of the Inca … Cuzco, capital of the Inca and Spanish-colonial empires … and enigmatic Machu Picchu. Travel by rail on a breathtaking journey to this architectural marvel, where an overnight stay gives you time to absorb its mystery and beauty. Your South America travels also include a day trip to Otavalo, Ecuador, home of South America’s most authentic native market. Your explorations culminate with an unforgettable four-night Galapagos cruise of the Galapagos Islands, one of the most pristine natural areas on the planet. Your Galapagos cruise vessel is a specially outfitted eco-cruise ship that combines the stability and comfort of a large ship with a full array of naturalist-guided shore excursions and small-group wildlife encounters. You’ll agree — a trip that combines the Inca Trail, Machu Picchu travels, and wonders of Ecuador and the Galapagos provides an unforgettable experience from start to finish!
South America travelers especially appreciate the opportunity to combine travel to Machu Picchu with a Galapagos cruise aboard a luxury expedition vessel. Add the chance to follow the Inca Trail, and you have a small-group Galapagos vacation that is in itself a wonder!
