Amazon River Expedition & Machu Picchu

Amazon River Expedition & Machu Picchu



Explore the lush Amazon River Basin and legendary Machu Picchu with a five-night cruise aboard the deluxe Zafiro through the world’s largest rainforest and a five‑night discovery of the breathtaking Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cuzco. See rare, endemic flora and fauna—from transparent glass frogs to pink river dolphins—and experience the rich traditions of the ribereños (indigenous Amazonian peoples). Stand in Machu Picchu, where over 200 archaeological treasures, framed by the emerald green peaks of the Andes, defy hyperbole. In the Sacred Valley, learn more about the Incas’ engineering prowess at the remarkable fortress of Ollantaytambo and tour the ancient Inca capital of Cuzco.
