This tropical city of more than two million people spreads out along the banks of the chocolate-colored Guayas River, about 12 miles inland from the Gulf of Guayaquil. The river, navigable for the largest of ocean vessels, makes Guayaquil one of the Pacific’s most important and best-protected ports. Approximately 85% of Ecuador’s exports flows through this port and down the Guayas River to the outside world. Guayaquil is a city of industry, oil and sugar refineries, cement mills, breweries, and several other factories concentrated along the crowded riverbanks.
Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge, writing home to your loved ones or simply topping up your tan by the pool, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.
Not far from the mainland coast of Peru, off the Illescas Peninsula, lies Isla Lobos de Tierra. It is a steep and rocky island that protrudes more than 200 feet (61 meters) from the surface of the deep blue Pacific. Several smaller islets surround it, including El León and Albatros. An abundant array of marine mammals and seabirds surround these islands. Sea lions, like sunbathers, bask on the beaches and hundreds of Blue-footed Boobies can be viewed ashore, whilst Peruvian Pelicans pass overhead.
Located about nine hours north of Lima, Trujillo was founded in 1534 by the Spanish conquistador Pizarro. The attractive, colonial city retains much of its original charm with elegant casonas, or mansions, lining the streets. Nearby is Chan Chan, the ancient capital of the Chimú, a local Indian tribe who came under the rule of the Incas. The area has several other Chimú sites, some dating back about 1500 years. The region is also famous as the home of the Peruvian Paso horses, as well as excellent beaches offering world-class surfing and other water sports.

Isla Guanape is located in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of La Libertad, Peru. Two main islands, North and South Guañape, along with several small islets constitute a biological reserve for seabirds. In 2009, the National Wildlife Refuge System of Peru officially protected the islands. The rugged, rocky, and dry island group is uninhabited by people, but is home not only to large colonies of South American sea lions, but to hundreds of thousands of seabirds. These include Peruvian Pelicans, Inca Terns and Blue-footed Boobies and Humboldt Penguins.
When people discuss great South American cities, Lima is often overlooked. But Peru's capital can hold its own against its neighbors. It has an oceanfront setting, colonial-era splendor, sophisticated dining, and nonstop nightlife.It's true that the city—clogged with traffic and choked with fumes—doesn't make a good first impression, especially since the airport is in an industrial neighborhood.

The port city of Paracas is blessed with magnificent natural beauty and rich historical importance, offerings inviting beaches, ideal weather and pleasant scenery — a combination that draws visitors throughout the year. The shores of the Paracas Peninsula and waters of the bay teem with wildlife and have been declared a national reserve. Condors frequently can be seen gliding on the sea winds or perched on the cliffs; pink flamingos often rest here on their migratory flights.

Matarani is located on the south-western coast of Peru and gives access to the colonial city of Arequipa, 75 miles (121 km) inland. From here it is a 200 mile (322 km) drive to Lake Titicaca and 400 miles (644 km) to Cuzco and Machu Picchu. This major port is an important element in the current plan between the governments of Peru and Brazil to afford easy commercial movement between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans by both countries.

Arica boasts that it is "the land of the eternal spring," but its temperate climate and beaches are not the only reason to visit this small city. Relax for an hour or two on the Plaza 21 de Mayo. Walk to the pier and watch the pelicans and sea lions trail the fishing boats as the afternoon's catch comes in. Walk to the top of the Morro and imagine battles of days gone by, or wonder at the magnitude of modern shipping as Chilean goods leave the port below by container ship.

Situated between the ocean and the mountains of the Coastal Range is Chile’s largest city of the northern region. Antofagasta's role as port for the exportation of nitrate began in 1866. In 1872, when silver was discovered, the first municipality was established. Today, Antofagasta is still the centre of nitrate and copper mining, as well as an important hub for rail traffic to La Paz, Bolivia, and Salta, Argentina. According to the treaty signed after the War of the Pacific, much of Bolivia's international commerce transits through Antofagasta.
The rugged shores of Isla Pan de Azucar (or Sugarloaf Island) are home to thousands of Humboldt Penguins. The penguins come to this arid island to breed and spend their days fishing, swimming and diving, as do many of the other birds found here. The waters around Isla Pan de Azucar also support Kelp Gulls, Blackish Oystercatchers, Peruvian Boobies, pelicans, sea lions and the reclusive South American marine otter.
Isla Chañaral is located just off the Central Chilean coast and, along with two other smaller islands, is part of the Humboldt Penguin National Reserve. The islands are an important breeding site for Humboldt Penguins. Sea lions rest on the rocky cliff ledges, while rare South American marine otters have been known to slide in and out of the waters along the coastline, and playful bottlenose dolphins swim in the surrounding seas. The island itself consists of an upper and a lower plateau.
The name Coquimbo is derived from a native Diaguita word meaning 'place of calm waters'. In fact, Charles Darwin had noted that the town was 'remarkable for nothing but its extreme quietness'. Since then, Coquimbo has developed into a bustling port and the region's major commercial and industrial centre from which minerals, fish products and fruits are exported. Used during the colonial period as a port for La Serena, Coquimbo attracted attention from English pirates, including Sir Francis Drake, who visited in 1578.

Valparaíso's dramatic topography—45 cerros, or hills, overlooking the ocean—requires the use of winding pathways and wooden ascensores (funiculars) to get up many of the grades. The slopes are covered by candy-color houses—there are almost no apartments in the city—most of which have exteriors of corrugated metal peeled from shipping containers decades ago. Valparaíso has served as Santiago's port for centuries. Before the Panama Canal opened, Valparaíso was the busiest port in South America.

Temps forts du Voyage

Join us to cruise along the Peruvian and Chilean coast and visit several UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You will be amazed by the scenery and wildlife of the islands in the Humboldt Current. During boat excursions or Zodiac cruises you will have a chance to spot Blue-footed, Nazca and Peruvian Boobies, Guanay Cormorants, Humboldt Penguins and several other seabird species, as well as South American sea lions and fur seals. Encounter fascinating local cultures as well as Incan and Pre-Incan remains against the backdrop of some of the Andes’ breathtaking mountains and some of the world’s driest deserts. Throughout the voyage, learn about the history, geology, wildlife and botany of South America’s west coast from lecture presentations offered by your knowledgeable onboard Expedition Team.

Voyage Highlights:

Isla Lobos de Tiera, Isla Guañape and Islas Ballestas (the Peruvian guano islands) –
These islands represent excellent examples of seabird islands exploited for their guano (used as fertilizer) and will permit to see huge seabird colonies as well as South American sea lions and fur seals.

Lima, Peru –

See Nazca’s impressive lines and geoglyphs –UNESCO World Heritage- from the air and marvel at the mathematical and artistic work done more than 1500 years ago.

Arequipa, Peru –
The Historical Centre of the City of Arequipa –UNESCO World Heritage- is yet another fine example of Spanish Colonial architecture as seen in the city's robust walls, archways and vaults, courtyards and open spaces, and the intricate Baroque decoration of its facades.

Arica, Chile –
Arica, “The City of Eternal Spring”, has been an important port for Spain, Peru, Bolivia and Chile and its valleys produce excellent fruit, but for us it is the starting point to see Chile’s Altiplano, Lake Chungará with its flamingos and part of Qhapac Ñan, the Incan road system -UNESCO World Heritage.

Antofagasta, Chile –
We will either take a look at the remains of the saltpetre trade in Antofagasta or go on a full day excursion into one of the driest deserts in the world visiting San Pedro de Atacama and will see the nearby salt lakes and flamingos, as well as the “Valley of the Moon”.
