Luxury Peru and Galapagos: Machu Picchu and the Enchanted Islands

15 days from £8,155pp
 

Private Journey

 

 

This two-week luxury holiday in Peru, Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands offers a real variety of experience in comfort and style, staying in some of the most exquisite boutique-style historic hotels and travelling on a top-of-the-range motor yacht. 

The warmth and friendliness of the Peruvian people, combined with the country’s rich traditions and diverse, extraordinary scenery, make Peru an easy place to fall in love with. Here we take you to its best known sites: the ancient Inca temples of Machu Picchu and the Inca capital and colonial treasure house of Cusco. Continue by air to Quito, the highland capital of Ecuador, and fly on to embark on MV Ocean Spray for a 5-day cruise around the Galápagos Islands, to see the greatest wildlife show on Earth. It was on a similar trip 200 years ago that Darwin returned to the archipelago to write the seminal book ‘On The Origin of Species’. Step into his shoes and explore the diversity of land and marine life which inhabit these enchanting islands.
