Private Journey

 

This unique holiday in Peru, Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands offers a real variety of outdoor experiences in a natural environment with a vast range flora and fauna. 

From Machu Picchu and Cusco you head down to the rainforest. The remote Amazonian Manú National Park has one of highest levels of biodiversity of any reserve in the world. On this holiday, we visit the Manú Biosphere Reserve on the edge of the park. Not only will you have the chance to view wildlife but you will also be able to observe the conservation-focused scientists and researchers in the jungle, assist them with their work and learn about local community projects

Continue by air to Quito, capital of Ecuador, and after a visit to Mindo Cloud forest fly on for an 8-day cruise around the Galápagos Islands. 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 the islands.

The many different altitudes and ecosystems you will visit, from chilly mountain ranges to humid lowland jungle and the volcanic islands of the Galápagos ensure that you will observe a multitude of species. Just look at the statistics -Peru alone has over 1,800 species of birds (120 endemic to Peru), and 500 species of mammals and over 300 species of reptiles.
