Rising from the misty blanket of the garua - a persistent fog that cloaks Lima during winter - you'll find one of South America's most culturally vibrant cities. The former capital of the Spanish colonists - head to Plaza de Armas to immerse yourself in the heart of the old city. The Basilica Cathedral of Lima watches over Plaza Mayor - listen out for the stomps of boots outside, as the pomp and ceremony of the Changing of the Guards draws crowds to the Government Palace. The history of this area runs much deeper, however, and pre-Colombian cities and temples emerge from the dusty earth nearby. Grand museums showcase unearthed treasures from the extraordinary civilisations who built vast mud adobe cities across Peru's coastline, and incredible settlements in the country's valleys and mountains. The Barranco district is Lima's artsy area, and you can walk from modern art galleries to see the local muse, the Bridge of Sighs. This wooden bridge is an artist's favourite, and one of the city's most romantic spots. Afterwards, sample some of Lima's cuisine, and the zingy flavours of spicy, lime-marinated fish ceviche. So revered in these parts, ceviche even has its own national day on June 28th. Sipping a Pisco Sour is the perfect way to round off your visit to this engrossing, multi-layered city.

4NT PRE-CRUISE: MACHU PICCHU GRANDE EXPLORER

Discover one of South America's most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Few places can compare to the "Lost City of the Incas", one of the most beautiful and enigmatic sites in the world. From Lima, a scheduled flight takes you to the historic city of Cusco high up in the Andes and then board the legendary Hiram Bingham train for a picturesque train-ride to Machu Picchu to explore the "Citadel in the Clouds."


Please note: Participants in this program should schedule their arrival flight into Lima, Peru.


Please check with your travel professional for details regarding Peruvian visa requirements. It is the responsibility of each guest to obtain appropriate visa documents prior to cruising.


DAY 1 - LIMA

Upon arrival in Lima, you are met and transferred from the airport to the beautiful Belmond Miraflores Park Hotel. After check-in, the remainder of the day is at your leisure. All meals are on your own account.


Please note: If your flight is scheduled to arrive after 6:00pm, you should be aware that you will have very little time to rest at the hotel. In such cases, for your comfort and convenience, we strongly recommend adding an additional night's stay to your program.


Overnight at the Miraflores Park Hotel - Lima, Peru


DAY 2 - LIMA / CUSCO

Begin your day with breakfast in the hotel restaurant and then return to Lima's airport for your flight to Cusco. If the sky is clear, the 80-minute flight offers impressive views of the Andes. Upon arrival in Cusco, claim your baggage and then board the coach.


Stop for lunch at a local restaurant before adjusting to the elevation. A simple city tour is provided and includes a visit to the Koricancha, also known as "The Temple of the Sun". According to the chronicles, the temple was covered in gold leaf and filled with golden images. The city's showpiece is the main square, the Plaza de Armas, where the magnificent, 16th-century cathedral is located. When inside, pay particular attention to the unique rendition of The Last Supper painting. At first glance the biblical scene may appear standard, but upon closer observation, the roasted animal on the dish placed in the center of the table looks a bit peculiar. Many believe it's a popular local meat called 'cuy' or better known as guinea pig.


To help you acclimate and adjust to the change in altitude, we suggest to take things easy, do not overly exert yourself, and avoid alcohol. The local remedy is to drink coca tea.


Dinner tonight is provided at a local restaurant.

Upon arrival at the site, commence a guided tour of the marvelous Citadel, then take a stroll through this impressive archaeological site on your own. Explore the famous "Lost City of the Incas" and feel its pulse while visualizing the lives of the priests, craftsmen, and servants who lived in this seemingly incredible site. Excavations have only added to the mystery, revealing the skeletons of 173 people along with artifacts and woolen clothing, though no gold.

Afterward, relax with afternoon tea at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel located within the very grounds of the Machu Picchu Sanctuary citadel.


Dinner is served at the Lodge.


Overnight at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge


DAY 4 - MACHU PICCHU / CUSCO

After an early-morning breakfast at the lodge, depart for an opportunity to witness an incomparable sight (weather permitting); the sun rising over Machu Picchu. Due to the proximity of the hotel to the site, overnight guests have time in the morning to enjoy the citadel with very few other visitors around.


Spend ample time at the ruins today exploring on your own. An early lunch is served at the lodge before you depart for the train station and board the Vistadome train. Sit back and relax for the next 3.5 hours as the train makes its way back to Cusco. Leave the train at Ollanta station and transfer back to the historic Monasterio Hotel.

DAY ONE - Thursday, February 6, 2020 - Lima/Cusco

Transfer to Lima Airport, and a scheduled flight to Cusco

After disembarking the ship in Callao, meet your guide and transfer to the Lima Airport. Upon arrival, check-in for your scheduled, approximately 1.5-hour flight to Cusco, taking you from sea level to the heights of the Andes.


Guided tour of the splendid, Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral and lunch at a local restaurant

Upon arrival at the Cusco Airport in Calama, meet your guide and transfer to the splendid, Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Incan palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman Fortress. Following your visit, proceed for lunch at a local restaurant.


Visit the sacred site of Koricancha, with its lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo

After lunch at a local restaurant, continue on to the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo, which was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most exquisite temple in the Incan Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west-end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Incan stonework.


Guided tour of the ancient Incan citadel, Sacsayhuaman

Next, re-board your coach and drive up to the Sacsayhuaman Fortress. Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, Sacsayhuaman was constructed without mortar, like many other Incan structures. Yet the enormous stones of the remaining walls, some weighing approximately 200 tons (about 181 metric tons), fit so tightly that not even a thin knife blade can slide between them. This craftsmanship is a stunning example of the Incan's sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.


Hotel transfer, check-in and some free time

Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 70-minute transfer back to the hotel for check-in, and some free time to freshen-up before dinner.

Here, see the sun's rays pass through the temple to light the Sacred Plaza and visit the curious stone block believed to be a solar clock.


Explore remarkably preserved palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses

Whilst exploring this Incan retreat perched between Huayna Picchu (Young Peak) and Machu Picchu (Old Peak), it is easy to be moved by the wonder of this magnificent ancient wonder. Perched approximately 2,000 feet (about 610 metres) above the rumbling Urubamba River, it contains misty palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation. Carved from the granite of the mountain top, many of the building blocks weigh 50 tons (about 45 metric tons) or more, yet are so precisely sculpted and fitted that the mortar-less joints won't permit the insertion of even a thin knife-blade.


Transfer back to the train station and a return-ride to Rio Sagrado, with dinner served on board

When inside, pay particular attention to the unique rendition of The Last Supper painting. At first glance the biblical scene may appear standard, but upon closer observation, the roasted animal on the dish placed in the center of the table looks a bit peculiar. Many believe it's a popular local meat called 'cuy'.

Stop for lunch at a local restaurant. Transfer to the Cusco airport where you will embark on your flight from Cusco to Lima. Upon arrival in Lima, claim your baggage and board the coach for your transfer to the Belmond Miraflores Park Hotel.

DAY ONE - Thursday, February 6, 2020 - Lima/Cusco

Transfer to Lima Airport, and a scheduled flight to Cusco

After disembarking the ship in Callao, meet your guide and transfer to the Lima Airport. Upon arrival, check-in for your scheduled, approximately 1.5-hour flight to Cusco, taking you from sea level to the heights of the Andes.


Guided tour of the splendid, Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral and lunch at a local restaurant

Upon arrival at the Cusco Airport, meet your guide and transfer to the splendid, Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Incan palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman Fortress. Following your visit, proceed for lunch at a local restaurant.


Visit the sacred site of Koricancha, with its lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo

After lunch at a local restaurant, continue on to the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo, which was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most exquisite temple in the Incan Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Incan stonework.


Guided tour of the ancient Incan citadel, Sacsayhuaman

Next, re-board your coach and drive up to the Sacsayhuaman Fortress. Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, Sacsayhuaman was constructed without mortar, like many other Incan structures. Yet the enormous stones of the remaining walls, some weighing approximately 200 tons (about 181 metric tons), fit so tightly that not even a thin knife blade can slide between them. This craftsmanship is a stunning example of Incan's sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.


Hotel transfer, check-in and some free time

Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 15 minute transfer back to the hotel for check-in, and some free time to freshen up before dinner.


Dinner is at the hotel.


Overnight accommodations in a Deluxe Room at the Monasterio Hotel - Cusco

Transfer to Macchu Picchu, and a guided walking tour of this incredible ancient city

Upon arrival at the Aguas Calientes Train Station, transfer to Macchu Picchu, one of South America's most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The highlight of your day is experiencing the timeless wonder and grandeur of this 'Lost City of the Incas'. Your guided walking tour explores the terraces and aqueducts leading to the Temple of the Three Windows. Here, see the sun's rays pass through the temple to light the Sacred Plaza and visit the curious stone block believed to be a solar clock.


Explore remarkably preserved palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses

Whilst exploring this Incan retreat perched between Huayna Picchu (Young Peak) and Machu Picchu (Old Peak), it is easy to be moved by the wonder of this magnificent ancient wonder. Perched approximately 2,000 feet (about 610 metres) above the rumbling Urubamba River, it contains misty palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms, and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation. Carved from the granite of the mountain top, many of the building blocks weigh 50 tons (about 45 metric tons) or more, yet are so precisely sculpted and fitted that the mortar-less joints won't permit the insertion of even a thin knife-blade.


Transfer back to the train station and a return-ride to Rio Sagrado, with dinner served on board

Following your tour of Macchu Picchu, transfer back to the Aguas Calientes Train Station and re-board the Hiram Bingham train for the return-ride to Rio Sagrado, with dinner served on board. Upon arrival at the Rio Sagrado Train Station, transfer back to the hotel.

Discover one of South America's most spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Sites recently declared one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Few places can compare to the 'Lost City of the Incas', one of the most beautiful and enigmatic sites in the world. In the morning, from Callao port a scheduled flight takes us to Cusco, nestled in the Andes. Travel via the luxury train 'Hiram Bingham' to Machu Picchu and visit the Inca's breath-taking 'Citadel in the Clouds' ringed by green-clad mountain peaks. Stay in the historic city of Cusco high up in the Andes before re-joining the ship.



DAY ONE - Wednesday, December 9th, 2020 - Callao / Cusco

Transfer to Lima Airport and check in for our flight to Cusco, taking us from sea level to the heights of the Andes.


Start the journey to Cusco with a photo tour that will take us to both popular tourist spots and lesser known areas in the Capital of the Inca Empire. Visit Inca streets, typical places and buildings as well as meeting local people. During the tour, receive photo advice from our expert, whether you use a sophisticated camera or phone. Explore and discover the real Cusco from the eyes of a local photographer and then share memorable shots of this beautiful city with your family and friends.


Next, continue into the Sacred Valley for lunch at Hacienda Sarapampa. Finally, transfer to Hacienda Urubamba for dinner and overnight.



DAY TWO - Thursday, December 10th, 2020 - Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu

In the morning, transfer to the train station to board the Sacred Valley train.


The climax of our day, however, is the timeless wonder and grandeur of Machu Picchu, the "Lost City of the Incas." Our guided walking tour explores the terraces and aqueducts leading to the Temple of the Three Windows. See the sun's rays pass through the temple to light the Sacred Plaza and visit the curious stone block believed to be a solar clock.


As we explore this Inca retreat perched between Huayna Picchu (Young Peak) and Machu Picchu (Old Peak), we can't help but be moved by the wonder of the place. It hovers two thousand feet above the rumbling Urubamba River and contains misty palaces, baths, temples, storage rooms and some 150 houses, all in a remarkable state of preservation. Carved from the granite of the mountain top, many of the building blocks weigh 50 tons or more yet are so precisely sculpted and fitted that the mortar-less joints will not permit the insertion of even a thin knife blade. After our tour, we return to Urubamba Train Station on the Sacred Valley train with dinner served on board. Upon arriving at the train station, transfer back to the hotel.


Overnight at Hacienda Urubamba.


DAY THREE - Friday, December 11th, 2020 - Sacred Valley / Cusco

After an early breakfast, proceed to the Andean Village of Ccor Ccor. We meet the Quechua-speaking farmers and weavers of this rural community and have a personal encounter with local lifeways and traditions. We participate in the daily activities of this place, visiting their kitchens to see colorful variety of local food on display. The welcoming and hospitable villagers will offer us a demonstration of textile technique and design, an essential feature of Peruvian life for millennia. They will share this knowledge with us, and reveal the symbolic meanings encoded into their cloth and styles of dress. Then, after a short walk with our village companions to the accompaniment of flutes and drums, we enter the heart of the Andean agricultural cycle -- as vital today as it was in Inca times -- as our Quechua hosts show us how they hand-turn the soil on the mountainsides, and invite us to join them in blessing their earth, their animals, and the new-plowed land. In this celebration of profound Andean traditions inherited from the Inca past, we gain a privileged experience for ourselves today.


Drive to Cusco. Upon arrival, visit the sacred site of Koricancha. Here, admire the lovely Dominican Convent of Santo Domingo that was built on the foundations of the Temple of the Sun, the most sumptuous temple in the Inca Empire. The curved, mortar-less masonry wall at the west end of the church is considered to be one of the greatest existing examples of Inca stonework.


Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch visit the splendid Baroque-style Cusco Cathedral, built in the mid-1500s on the foundations of an Inca palace. Many of the stones used in its construction were looted from the nearby Sacsayhuaman fortress.


Transfer to Sacsayhuaman. Strategically located on a hill overlooking Cusco, Sacsayhuaman was constructed without mortar, like many other Inca structures. Yet the enormous stones (some weighing 200 tons) of the remaining walls fit so tightly that not even a thin blade of grass can slide between them. The craftsmanship is a stunning example of the Inca's sophisticated construction techniques and architectural skills.


Transfer to the Palacio del Inka Hotel. Dinner and overnight at Palacio del Inka Hotel.


DAY FOUR - Saturday, December 12th, 2020 - Cusco / Lima / Guayaquil / Manta

After breakfats and check out commence your 1.5 hour drive to Cusco airport. Take the flight to Lima in connection to the flight to Guayaquil. Transfer from Guayaquil airport to Manta port to embark the Silver Moon.

DAY ONE - Wednesday, December 9th, 2020 - Callao / Lima / Guayaquil

Depart Callao Port and transfer to Lima Airport to board our international flight to Guayaquil. Upon arrival in Guayaquil, our guide will meet us for the transfer to the hotel for check in and lunch.


Located on the banks of the Guayas River, Guayaquil is Ecuador's principal harbour and largest city, with about 3 million inhabitants. Guayaquil's strong culture and traditions stand in amazing contrast to the modernity of its new constructions. Guayaquil's harbour, "Puerto Maritimo", is the main sea port of the country and is where 80% of the country's imports and more than 50% of its exports are handled. The commercial and industrial centre of Ecuador, Guayaquil lies about 60 kilometres from the Gulf of Guayaquil and the Pacific Ocean.


Later depart for sightseeing. This informative 'highlights of Guayaquil' overview begins with a visit to a Toquilla hat workshop to see the weaving process. Since 1630 Panama Hats are handwoven in Ecuador. They have been made of the fibres from the Toquilla Palm, called Palmata Carludovica. In 1906 Theodore Roosevelt wore one of those hats while visiting the constructions of the Panama Canal. That picture has travelled around the world and since then the Ecuadorian Hats have been called Panama Hats. The Toquilla (or Panama) Hat has covered many famous heads, for example those of Ernest Hemmingway, Winston Churchill, Harry Truman, Paul Newman and Alberto Santos Dumont, and more. Once the leaves have been harvested, the fibre is cooked in huge pots of boiling water to soften the material. After drying the material in the shade, the hard work begins. Row by row the hats slowly take their form. The finer the hat is, the longer it takes to work on it. A super fine hat takes at least three months to make and when rolled up will fit through a typical wedding ring! Once the weaving is completed, the hats are shaped, ironed and fitted with a traditional black band. Finally, learn how the hats are rolled so that customers can take them home in a little balsawood box. Take advantage of some free time to take pictures and, if you wish, you can purchase a super fine hat directly from the producers. Toquilla Hats are flexible and can be rolled or folded into a suitcase. One can find Panama Hats in many different styles, for men, women and children, used all around the globe.


Then drive along the arcitecturally-rich main Avenue of Guayaquil, and continue on to a favorite destination of the locals - Centennial Park, a green area that honors the heroes of Guayaquil's Independence. A stop at the unusual Bolivar Park, also called "park of the iguanas" comes next. Here, the guests have an opportunity to enjoy seeing and photographing the colorful iguanas roaming around the park undisturbed and perching on the tree tops! We will continue to the South Market in Malecon 2000, to visit the Integration Plaza and artisans market, the Union Club and the first fort of Guayaquil where a statue of Jose Joaquin de Olmedo (first major of Guayaquil) stands in front of the Guayas River. Continue the visit through the Malecon Simon Bolivar to our next stop: the Civic Plaza. Visit the Moorish Tower, the City hall, and the Rotonda Monument.


Return to the hotel for dinner and overnight.



DAY TWO - Thursday, December 10th, 2020 - Guayaquil / Galapagos

Our guide will meet us to transfer to the Guayaquil airport to take our flight to Galapagos.

Upon arrival at Baltra airport, a Galapagos Naturalist Guide will welcome us and help with our luggage and guidance towards the public bus that heads towards the Channel of Itabaca which separates the island Baltra from Santa Cruz. A public ferry crosses the azure waters of the channel towards Santa Cruz, which will take approximately 5 minutes. On Santa Cruz, board a private vehicle to transfer to Puerto Ayora on the other side of the island. Driving through the rural areas of the island, travelers can experience the agriculture of the archipelago as well as the diversity of its flora. Surrounded by wild landscapes and different species, keep a lookout for the finches that are famous for being the basis of Darwin's theory of evolution.


During our first visit, on the way to the Santa Cruz Highlands, make a short stop to see the Twin Craters "Los Gemelos" in Spanish which are two impressive volcanic depressions in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island. The sinkholes were created from the collapse of surface materials into hollow chambers below the surface. Then continue to a local ranch where we watch the famous Galapagos land tortoises in their natural environment and learn how the private ranches aid to protect these special animals. We can hear their sounds while they are trying to eat the leaves of the trees or crashing through the undergrowth. Tortoises of all different ages and sizes gather here: Small young ones with shining carapaces, and older ones which are a little bit more laggard and cracks in their shells showing evidence of a long life. Lunch will be served at a local venue in the highlands.


Transfer to the hotel for check-in. We have the rest of the afternoon at leisure. Dinner is served at the hotel after an exciting and memorable day.



DAY THREE - Friday, December 11th, 2020 - Galapagos Islands

Today we take a full day boat tour to ONE of the following nearby Islands: (Subject to confirmation)


FLOREANA This morning, navigate to the small town of Puerto Velasco Ibarra located on the Floreana Island (approximately 2.5 hours from Santa Cruz). Upon arrival, take local transportation known as "Chiva" to start a 30 minute ride up to the highlands of Floreana Island. The chiva will ascend a dirt road surrounded by typical dry vegetation transform into a lush, green vegetation as we gain elevation. In this area, we also find some farms with banana, coffee, cacao, and other tropical plantations. Our short drive will end at the "pampada" from where we start a beautiful walk which permits us to observe the typical flora of the area. On our way, we will also encounter some giant Galapagos tortoises. Continue to the place known as "Asilo de la Paz" (Peace Asylum), a historical place where the German Wittmer family settled down when they arrived to Floreana in 1932. Observe the caves used as their home before moving to the place which is now known as Puerto Velasco Ibarra. Back in town, enjoy lunch prepared in a small, local restaurant.


Next, we walk to "La Loberia", a beautiful bay. The main attraction is the presence of a small colony of sea lions. There is also a great chance to observe marine iguanas resting on the rocks, and in the waters of the bay we may be able to see marine turtles.

Difficulty level: Moderate


ISABELA This morning, sail to the town of Puerto Villamil on Isabela Island (approximately 3 hours from Santa Cruz). Upon arrival, visit the Isabela Tortoise Breading and Interpretation Center where our guide will explain the different activities developed by the National Park to protect the fragile environment. Here, we also find Giant Galapagos Tortoises of different species and sizes.

Afterwards, we start our walk to the place known as "Humedales" (Wetlands). The walk follows a well maintained path from which we can observe this beautiful place composed by lagoons and rocks and surrounded by 4 species of mangroves and typical trees of the area. In the lagoons we can observe flamingos and migratory birds.


After lunch at a local restaurant, we visit "Las Tintoreras", a scenic area where we find colonies of marine iguanas, sea lions, and many sharks known as Tintoreras (White-tipped sharks) resting in the channels formed by lava flows. Later, we can do some snorkeling, perhaps with the company of sea lions, penguins and marine turtles.

Difficulty level: Moderate


Dinner is served at the hotel restaurant.


DAY FOUR - Saturday, December 12th, 2020 - Galapagos / Guayaquil / Manta

After breakfast, we transfer to the airport for our flight back to the mainland. After flying to Guayaquil, transfer via private coach to Manta City. Box lunch will be provided along the ride. Upon arrival in Manta, we are dropped off at the Cruise Terminal to pass through Migration, Customs, and anti-narcotics before entering the pier. The internal Manta Port shuttle will transfer us from the Terminal to the pier to embark to the ship.


Please note: This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires an extensive amount of activities and walking of approximately 5 miles (8 kilometers) in total and 600 steps. Due to the volcanic origin of the Islands, and the fact that most of the treks are on irregular volcanic terrain, guests must be in good physical condition for this type of excursion. This excursion is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair.

Pack carefully, light and smart. Lightweight fast drying cotton is recommended: cotton pants, sShorts, T-shirts, bathing suit, long sleeved shirt, a windbreaker or light sweater and comfortable walking shoes. Don't forget to bring with you a hat, preferably that cover the ears, lots of sunscreen lotion, insect repellent, sunglasses, small backpack to carry on land visits (for your camera and bottled water), a plastic bag to keep your camera or photographic equipment dry. If you wear glasses, it is a good idea to bring contact lenses for diving and snorkeling. Expect wet landings: during wet landings in Galapagos, you have to get off the zodiac into the water (and you will get wet up to the knees) please be aware that it can be a little bit uncomfortable since you may want good shoes for walking. Our recommendation is to bring on a back pack your walking shoes and wear your sandals or water shoes.

The wildlife described below is not guaranteed to be seen during your visit. Please remember to respect your distance between any and all wildlife. Please stay on marked trails and heed the directions of your Naturalist Guide.
