OVERVIEW

Discover the country’s rich past in Cusco, once the capital of the Incan Empire, the archaeological remains of the Sacsayhuamán citadel and Temple of the Sun provide insight into the astronomical genius of the Incas. On top of the Temple of the Sun sits the Baroque-inspired Santo Domingo Convent, not only an example of Spanish colonial architecture but a demonstration of Peru’s unique blend of culture, history and heritage. Cross Peru’s border into Ecuador to uncover a world of natural wonder. Leave the mainland for the Galápagos Islands: formed by seismic and volcanic activity, the islets are occupied by a melting-pot of marine species that roam ever-changing lands, allowing for a destination that is nothing short of fascinating.


Your adventure begins in Peru, where you will explore the capital city of Lima before diving deep into the country’s ancient Incan past in Cusco. Uncover sacred temples, ceremonial complexes, and the remains of an Incan Emperor’s summer retreat. Continue onwards to Ecuador’s world-renowned Galápagos Islands to spend five nights discovering enchanting islets inhabited by an abundance of wildlife that is unlike anywhere else on the planet. Swim with sea lions, walk with giant tortoises and marvel at blue-footed birds during your time in the archipelago.
