The Inca Trail and Machu Picchu
Trekking on the Inca Trail, the most famous trail in all of South America, is a highlight of the tour and one you’re not likely to forget. You may even feel like the Incas who traversed this trail during religious and ceremonial pilgrimages so long ago.
Take in the stunning mystery and beauty of mountains, cloud forests, and ruins during the day. Each night you’ll arrive at camp, already set up and ready for you to relax and enjoy an evening meal.
At the end of your 4-day journey, you’ll arrive at the breathtaking site of Machu Picchu for a guided tour. Once home to the Incas, this ancient archaeological site will amaze and surprise around every corner.
Before leaving Peru, you’ll spend time getting to know the historical city of Cusco, once known as the capital of the Inca Empire. Explore its archaeological remains along with its Spanish colonial architecture before saying farewell.
Galapagos Islands Expedition Cruise
The second half of your Galapagos and Inca Trail adventure begins with a flight to the Ecuadorian city of Quito. This enchanting colonial city is filled with cobblestone streets, historic churches, and much more to explore before catching another short flight to the famous Galapagos Islands. Home to extreme biodiversity and beauty, these remote islands will fill you with awe at the sight of beautiful waters and fascinating wildlife everywhere you look.
Comfortable accommodations await you aboard the M/T Camila, a luxury 125-foot yacht. Each island-inspired stateroom comes with its own ensuite living room, panoramic window, private balcony, and private bathroom for you to enjoy. And with only eight cabins onboard, you’re assured an experience free of crowds and offering specialized attention from staff.
Various excursions provide you with opportunities to see even more of the islands, starting with Lobos Island and its residing sea lions. Stop for a hike on the volcanic island of San Cristobal, spotting blue-footed and red-footed boobies, before relaxing on the gorgeous white sandy beach. Slow down as you stroll along Española Island and enjoy views of Waved Albatross, Galapagos hawks, and other unique wildlife.
In between excursions, spend time relaxing on the sundeck, soaking in the onboard jacuzzi, or gathering in the indoor lounge. You’ll also be served exquisite chef-prepared international and local cuisine in the comfortable dining room.
As your Inca Trail and Galapagos tour comes to an end, a flight will take you back to the mainland, full of memories to take along with you.
