Amazon River Expedition: Including Machu Picchu & The Sacred Valley

Amazon River Expedition: Including Machu Picchu & The Sacred Valley



Delve into the lush mystery of the Amazon River Basin and the legendary “lost city of Incas,” Machu Picchu. This unforgettable journey features a five-night natural history cruise aboard the deluxe, all-Suite Zafiro, two nights in the breathtaking Sacred Valley, one night in Machu Picchu and two nights in Cuzco. Cruise through our planet’s largest rainforest ecosystem, where the number of butterfly species climbs into the thousands and other species have yet to be even discovered. Led by expert Peruvian naturalists, explore the boundless diversity of nature’s most wondrous offerings, from delicate orchids to transparent glass frogs and pink river dolphins. Visit local villages to observe the traditional way of life of the ribereños (river people). In the Urubamba Valley, visit the terraced Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo; tour historic Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital; and experience Machu Picchu, a mysterious engineering marvel perched on the Andes.
