This luxurious private journey captures the natural and cultural highlights of the southern Andes of Peru and the exotic beauty of the Iguazú Falls and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Arrive in the vast metropolis of the Peruvian capital, Lima, and move on to historic Cusco, the former Inca capital and a treasure trove of meticulous Inca stonework and graceful colonial architecture. Travel onwards into the fertile Sacred Valley of the Incas and travel by rail alongside a tempestuous river through a narrow gorge leading to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, set on a sub tropical mountain saddle above the Urubamba Valley.
Fly across the continent to Brazil where you’ll immediately notice a different culture and pace of life. You arrive at Iguazú Falls, where you will step out of your hotel room at Belmond (ex-Orient Express) Hotel Das Cataratas to a symphony of birdsong and the thunderous roar of water crashing over lofty granite cliffs fringed by tropical rainforest. Explore the falls, walking above, below and even behind some of the 275 cascades, then move on to Rio. You have a couple of days in this exciting outdoor city, including an adventurous jeep tour climbing through rainforest to the peak of Corcovado mountain and the famous statue of Christ.
