Highlights of Peru plus Galapagos

Overview

Discover the highlights of Peru and the Galapagos on this 19 day journey across two of South America’s most fascinating countries. Peru overflows with history, culture and folklore, set in a wild and rugged landscape that ranges from the frozen peaks of the Andes to the rainforests of the Amazon Basin and to Lake Titicaca with its floating reed islands. Explore the capital Lima; wander the narrow streets of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire and travel through the Sacred Valley to the jewel in the crown - the legendary Machu Picchu, Lost City of the Incas and one of Peru’s twelve UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the ruins of ancient civilisations to the indigenous tribes and rich biodiversity of the Amazon Rainforest, Peru will captivate you. The journey continues to neighbouring Ecuador and its capital Quito, the largest historical old town in the Americas. From here a short flight takes you to the wildlife rich Galapagos Islands where you cruise between the islands that inspired the theories and writings of Charles Darwin. Rugged, strikingly beautiful, fragile and sometimes bizarre with its own unique species - the Galapagos archipelago is unlike any other place on Planet Earth.
Breath-taking scenery, fascinating wildlife, historical treasures and a vibrant culture are all blended together to make this tour an unforgettable experience.
