Luxury Tours

Just because you enjoy your creature comforts doesn’t mean you need to stay at home. Long thought of as an ‘off the beaten track’ destination, Latin America now boasts world class luxury accommodation and travel services, whilst preserving its grass roots traditions.
 
In Antarctica, aboard expedition ships, a number of luxury cabins have been outfitted for the discerning traveller to enjoy the intimacy of a smaller cruise in style.
 
Luxury travel in South America is exciting. In Peru, maybe you want to hike to Machu Picchu but arrive feeling fresh? Chimu Adventures will send you on the Salkantay route, trekking from luxury lodge to luxury lodge, relaxing by the fire when you arrive then enjoying the views of the Andes from your outdoor hot tub, before getting a good night’s sleep in a comfortable bed.
 
If cruising on the Amazon with a 180° panorama from your bed, personal staff and your own spa sounds like the way to travel, then we’ll arrange it for you. Or perhaps you prefer walking onto your private terrace in the middle of the Atacama Desert in Chile, gazing at vistas of ancient volcanoes, before heading out on a desert adventure, only to return to recover at the hotel spa and indulge in fine cuisine.
 
Even getting around these days can be indulgent, especially if you chose to travel to Machu Picchu via the Orient Express, enjoying breathtaking views along the way whilst you are pampered with fine dining and entertainment.
 
Most of Chimu Adventures’ itineraries throughout Latin America can be enjoyed in the star rating of your choice from 3 – 5* or a combination. So you don’t need to stay put to enjoy luxury, you can travel and enjoy at the same time.
