PERU & ECUADOR - NATURE AT IT’S BEST 13 DAYS/12 NIGHTS

Cruise the Galapagos Islands with the passionate experts getting close to incredible array of wildlife species and discover the mystical ancient Inca ruins of Machu Pichu. Consisting of an enormous stone city hidden by a spectacular mountain plateau, overlooking the deep canyon of the Urubamba River, Machu Picchu, a place of worship, was also a spot for star-gazing.

The itinerary together begins on San Cristóbal Island, the capital of the Galapagos Province. From there venture east along the northern shores of the island, visiting the fascinating site of Punta Pitt, taking you back to Charles Darwin’s visit of 1835. Then sail west to the central islands of Santa Fe, with its beautiful tranquil bay (great for swimming and snorkelling), before continuing to the wild cliffs of South Plaza with their cactus, land iguanas and stunning marine birds. The following day visit the world-famous Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island, the most populous in the archipelago, with a range of activities on offer in the afternoon. Española Island awaits on your last cruise day, a favourite of many visitors, with its remarkable visitor site of Punta Suárez. Here, you can wander along the rugged coastline, home to hundreds of marine iguanas, sealions, marine birds, and even albatross (at certain times of year). In the afternoon, Gardner Bay provides a wonderful setting for a combination of beach-time, swimming or snorkelling.
