Join us on an active adventure that combines the timeless natural world of the Galápagos Islands with exploration of the ancient empire of the Incas. One of our most popular trips immerses you in the Earth Journeys experience, featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and the use of field equipment when the opportunity arises. Unravel the mysteries of the centuries on a visit to Machu Picchu, the spectacular "Lost City of the Incas" – one of the must-see destinations on any world-traveler's list. Enjoy a six-night cruise aboard one of the finest expeditionary-style yachts in the Galápagos, the Isabela II – where you'll be accompanied by naturalists who inform and inspire with insights into the amazing wildlife including the giant Galápagos tortoises, blue-footed boobies, sea lions, marine iguanas, and penguins. Peru tours include meeting the famed Paso horses on a Peruvian ranch... a weaving demonstration at a local farm... and a scenic rail journey to the gateway to Machu Picchu for an overnight stay next to the ancient Incan site.
