Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu is the 15th-century masterpiece of the Incas, whose empire stretched across western South America. The famous Inca ruins sit on an impressive mountain ridge 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level, overlooking one of the most stunning landscapes in the world. To witness Machu Picchu is to be in communion with the great Inca civilization

Inca Trail

The iconic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is the most sought out hike in South America. This centuries-old trail gives hikers the chance to walk in the footsteps of Inca nobles and through a landscape that crosses ravines, glacial-fed waterways, and ancient ruins. The grand finale is reaching the Sun Gate of Machu Picchu, a World Heritage Site, which surpasses all imagination.

Galapagos

The Galápagos Islands, a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, lie about 1,000km off Ecuador’s coast, and are considered one of the world’s foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. The islands’ isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else on planet Earth. Charles Darwin visited in 1835, and his observation of Galápagos’ species later inspired his theory of evolution.

Amazon

The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most biodiverse and untamed natural habitats on Earth, and with Peru holding the second largest portion of the jungle within its borders, an Amazon tour is the best way to walk on the wild side and explore the beauty of the region.
