Galapagos & Amazon Guided Tour

Departures: Thursdays
     
17 Days Fully Guided Quito - Lima

or

28 Days Fully Guided Quito - La Paz

You will begin your adventure of discovery in Quito. 

Visit the land of the Otavalo Indian's then the unique Galapagos Islands, justifiably one of the world’s great wildlife destinations. As it has been free of humans and predators for almost all of its history, the islands have developed some of the most unique life forms on the planet. We explore the Islands for 8 days on our comfortable small motor cruiser.

Fly to remote Puerto Maldonado on the Rio Madre de Dios - a tributary of the Amazon - still unspoiled, where animal and bird spotting is among the best in South America. The Tambopata National Reserve is a 275,000 hectare conservation unit created by the Peruvian government in 1990 to protect the watersheds of the Tambopata and Candamo rivers. It is adjacent to the huge one million hectare Bahuaja Sonene National Park. Visit the unique Macaw Parrot Lick, and observe local communities.

Return to Lima or take the Incas Option to explore Cusco, the Inca temples and quaint cobble-stone villages, where life goes on as it did so many years ago.  Arrive into beautiful red-tiled Cusco, fabled Navel of the Universe, to explore the Inca Empire – still alive today – and prepare to hike the legendary Inca Trail to the 'Lost City of the Incas', Machu Picchu. For those not wishing to take up the challenge of the Inca Trail we have an exciting alternative programme – see shaded days of the detailed itinerary.

Across the altiplano to Puno, on the shores of tranquil Lake Titicaca, you can experience life on the floating reed islands while visiting the Uros Indians. Stop overnight in sleepy Copacabana on the lake, where you can visit the scenic and tranquil Island of the Sun – legendary birthplace of the sun as it rose out of the lake.

We then take a picture postcard route to La Paz situated at 3900m above sea level and where ancient cultures meet the new millenium. This bustling city is unique, with bowler-hatted ladies selling their fruit and veges on the pavement outside towering skyscrapers.
