Silversea Expedition Cruises To Callao (Lima)

Callao (Lima)

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.

But wander around the regal edifices surrounding the Plaza de Armas, among the gnarled olive trees of San Isidro's Parque El Olivar, or along the winding lanes in the coastal community of Barranco, and you'll find yourself charmed.In 1535 Francisco Pizarro found the perfect place for the capital of Spain's colonial empire. On a natural port, the so-called Ciudad de los Reyes (City of Kings) allowed Spain to ship home all the gold the conquistador plundered from the Inca. Lima served as the capital of Spain's South American empire for 300 years, and it's safe to say that no other colonial city enjoyed such power and prestige during this period.When Peru declared its independence from Spain in 1821, the declaration was read in the square that Pizarro had so carefully designed. Many of the colonial-era buildings around the Plaza de Armas are standing today. Walk a few blocks in any direction for churches and elegant houses that reveal just how wealthy this city once was. But the poor state of most buildings attests to the fact that the country's wealthy families have moved to neighborhoods to the south over the past century.The walls that surrounded the city were demolished in 1870, making way for unprecedented growth. A former hacienda became the graceful residential neighborhood of San Isidro. In the early 1920s the construction of tree-lined Avenida Arequipa heralded the development of neighborhoods such as bustling Miraflores and bohemian Barranco.Almost a third of the country's population of 29 million lives in the metropolitan area, many of them in relatively poor conos: newer neighborhoods on the outskirts of the city. Most residents of those neighborhoods moved there from mountain villages during the political violence and poverty that marked the 1980s and ’90s, when crime increased dramatically. During the past decade the country has enjoyed peace and steady economic growth, which have been accompanied by many improvements and refurbishment in the city. Residents who used to steer clear of the historic center now stroll along its streets. And many travelers who once would have avoided the city altogether now plan to spend a day here and end up staying two or three.

4NT PRE-CRUISE: MACHU PICCHU GRANDE EXPLORER

Indulge your senses with the scenic splendour and unique history of Peru. Board the legendary Hiram Bingham train for a picturesque train-ride to Machu Picchu. Upon arrival, explore the 'Lost City of the Incas'. Your overnight stay at the famed Sanctuary Lodge allows you to spend additional time at the historic site with fewer tourists. For a different experience, return to Cuzco aboard the Vistadome train.

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 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. As you adjust to the elevation, a simple city tour 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'.

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.


Overnight at the Monasterio Hotel - Cusco

DAY 3 - CUSCO / MACHU PICCHU

An early departure from the hotel takes you to the Rio Sagrado train station. Here you board the Hiram Bingham Orient Express luxury train for Machu Picchu. The trip will take approximately three hours during which brunch is served. Watch as the train passes through the spectacular scenery of the Urubamba Valley. The trip ends at the Aguas Calientes station at the foot of Machu Picchu. From here, a 25-minute bus ride will take you up a winding road to 'the Lost City of the Incas', arriving around 1:00 p.m. - at an hour when many tourists are on their way back to the train station. The setting of the ruins amongst green-clad mountain peaks is a spectacular and unforgettable sight.

Upon arrival at the site, commence a guided tour of the marvellous 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. It is anticipated that you will arrive at approximately 3:30pm, so you'll have some time for independent sightseeing. Dinner this evening is on your own account.

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. From Callao, travel by land and air to Cuzco, nestled in the Andes. Travel via the Vistadome to Machu Picchu and visit the Inca's breath-taking 'Citadel in the Clouds' ringed by green-clad mountain peaks. Stay in the beautiful Sacred Valley as well as in the historic city of Cusco high up in the Andes before re-joining the ship in Pisco.


DAY ONE - Callao / Sacred Valley

Your adventure begins right after you disembark from the vessel and make your way to Lima's airport for your flight to Cusco. The 80-minute flight offers impressive views of the Andes, if the sky is clear. Upon arrival in Cusco, claim your baggage and then board the coach.


To help you acclimate and adjust to the change in altitude, the coach takes you over the mountain pass and into the Sacred Valley, to a lower altitude. As you adjust to the change we suggest to take things easy, do not overly exert yourself, and avoid alcohol. The local remedy is to drink coca tea.


Stop in one of the most important towns of the Incan Empire, the small Andean town of Chinchero. Surrounded by the dramatic Andean landscape enjoy a picnic lunch. The speciality of this region is weaving and you will see this first-hand. This is a good location to buy items such as Alpaca hats, scarves and sweaters that may be priced higher in other locations.


Continue the drive to your hotel, Tambo del Inka a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa in the Sacred Valley. Relax and rest and meet for dinner at the suggested time.


Overnight at Tambo del Inka Resort & Spa in the Sacred Valley



DAY TWO - Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu / Cusco

Check-out of the hotel and board the coach for the drive to the Ollantaytambo train station. Watch as the train passes through the spectacular scenery of the Urubamba Valley. The trip ends at the Aguas Calientes station at the foot of Machu Picchu. From here, a 25-minute bus ride will take you up a winding road to 'the Lost City of the Incas', arriving around just before noon. The setting of the ruins amongst green-clad mountain peaks is a spectacular and unforgettable sight.


Enjoy a buffet lunch at the Sanctuary Lodge, then proceed with a guided walking tour of the Citadel along ancient pathways, staircases and terraces, past temples and towers. For centuries, the site was buried in the jungle until discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911. Excavations have been on-going ever since. Much of the walking is on uneven ground and involving steps.


In the late afternoon, head back to the train station and re-board the Vistadome train. Sit back and relax for the next 3.5 hours and the train makes its way back to Cusco. Leave the train at Poroy station and transfer to the historic Monasterio Hotel. It is anticipated that you will arrive at approximately 9:30pm. Arrangements have been made to provide dinner at the hotel, or check with your guide for the possibility of room service.


Overnight at the Monasterio Hotel - Cusco



DAY THREE - Cusco

Following breakfast at the hotel this morning, continue to Sacsayhuaman, once an important Inca cultural centre located on the city's outskirts. Visitors to this magnificent Inca fortress, which overlooks the city of Cusco, cannot fail to be impressed by the beauty and monumental scale of this important Inca construction. Sacsayhuaman can be variously translated as 'speckled falcon' or 'speckled head'. The last interpretation refers to the belief that the city of Cusco was set out in the form of a puma whose head was the hill of Sacsayhuaman. The origins are uncertain but the fortress is generally attributed to the period of Inca Pachacuti, the man who essentially founded the Inca empire. This is a huge fortress built with large stones the transportation of which is still a mystery. It is estimated that today you can see only twenty per cent of the original structure since at the arrival of the Spaniards it was dismantled and its stones used for new buildings like the Cathedral.


Lunch is served at a local restaurant before your visit to the Koricancha, also known as "The Temple of the Sun" (Quri Kancha 'Golden Temple'). According to the chronicles, the temple was covered in gold leaf and filled with golden images. The city's showpiece is the main square, in particular the magnificent 16th-century cathedral, also known as the Church of Victory. Next, go the San Blas quarter, originally used as dwellings for the Inca nobles, who built impressive stone constructions at a short distance from the Main Square. Today, the quarter is a conglomerate of charming small cobblestone streets and the San Blas Church is at its center.


Dinner this evening is served at your hotel.


Overnight at the Monasterio Hotel - Cusco


DAY FOUR - Cusco / Arequipa / Matarani

An early breakfast will help you to start your day before your transfer to the airport for the 1-hour flight to Arequipa, Peru's second largest city. It is also known as 'the White City' because of the white volcanic rock called 'sillar' that was used in the construction of many of its buildings. Upon arrival, sight tour of the main square, Plaza de Armas, with its colonial arcaded buildings and the impressive, twin-towered Cathedral, a fine example of Spanish Colonial architecture. Stop at the Santa Catalina Monastery, founded in 1580 and enlarged over the centuries until it became a city within the city. Your guide takes you down narrow streets and you pass through arched colonnades surrounding courtyards, some with fountains, flowering plants and trees.


At the end of the morning, stop for lunch in a local restaurant before heading out on the 2.5 hour drive that returns you to the ship in Matarani.

Start of Program: Callao

End of Program: Santiago, Chile


Highlights:

· Travel by private jet from Callao to La Paz in Bolivia

· Experience the vastness of the Altiplano

· See how the indigenous population of Bolivia still lives a traditional lifestyle

· Visit the highest and largest salt lake in the world

Itinerary:


Day 1 - Disembark the Silver Cloud in fly by private charter to La Paz, Bolivia. After getting acclimatized, visit the Cholet Mansion district in El Alto, guided by Freddy Mamani, the charismatic architect who started the "New Andean Architecture". This will give you an idea how nature and culture are interwoven in Bolivia and will prepare you for Bolivia's otherworldliness. In the evening attend a private welcome dinner at Restaurant Gustu. Overnight at the Casa Grande Hotel.

Day 2 - After breakfast, a 5-hour drive to Sajama National Park will take you to the bottom of ice-capped Sajama, Bolivia's highest peak. Your luxury yurt will be ready to welcome you with drinks and coca tea to help you relax at 4,500 meters altitude. Before dinner an informative presentation will introduce you to the wonders of Sajama National Park.

Day 3 - This will be a day of exploring the Sajama National Park with its volcanoes and hot springs, looking for the evergreen yareta plants that based on their growth rate are estimated to reach an age of up to 3,000 years. We intend to see one of the small Aymara communities that have lived in the rugged region for millennia. These indigenous families work the land as they have always done, raising and herding livestock, using the wool of llamas and alpacas to yarn fabrics and weave beautiful textiles. Local herders will talk to us about breeding and sheering alpacas.


Day 4 - Today we will travel overland across never ending plains. Heading south we will have the Occidental Andes and the border with Chile on our right while the volcanos to our left are part of the Oriental Andes. Getting closer to the Uyuni salt flats, lagunas, cacti and flamingos will become more visible. After eight hours of driving from Sajama, we will have descended some 900 meters and will reach our luxury dome camp on the Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, at the base of Tunupa Volcano.


Day 5 - This morning you visit the small village of Tahua and will hike to the cave of the Coquesa mummies at the foot of Tunupa Volcano. The Salar is the result of transformations of prehistoric lakes and is covered by a few meters of salt crust that is being mined in a few areas. In certain parts of the Salar, small mountains emerge like islands out of the salt. We will spend the rest of the day exploring the Salar and islands, visiting Isla de los Pescadores with its cactus forest and will have an unforgettable view of the immense salt lake and the Andes during a cocktail at sunset. At night, marvel at the clear sky and the amazing view of constellations and stars.


Day 6 - Set out onto the salt flat during the morning, crossing some 70 kilometers towards the southern edge. Once back on terra firma we will head further south to reach what is considered Bolivia's wildest area: Sud Lipez. At the small village of San Juan we will have a look at the tiny archaeological and ethnological museum. We will later have a beautiful view of the volcano Ollagüe and will drive past the four lakes Hedionda, Ramaditas, Canada and Chiarcota. This so-called Lagunas area has hundreds of flamingos and other birds that still thrive in these harsh surroundings. A yurt camp will be waiting for you at the end of the day.


Day 7 - Today you will have ample time to explore the colorful Lagunas, look for bird and wildlife, marvel at the colors of the rock formations and mountains, and take a bath in hot springs. Some of the colors of the land are so strange that one desert further southwest in the Pampa Jara has been named Dalí Desert.


Day 8 - Another long day will take through canyons, over passes reaching 4,800 meters, across stony plateaus and past sand dunes to reach the Eduardo Avaroa Natural Reserve. From our camp in the Siloli Desert we will drive to see intriguing rock formations, including the Stone Tree, to Laguna Colorada with its rare James's Flamingos. From there we will enter the Salar de Chalviri to reach Laguna Verde, located at the base of the famous volcano Licancabur. The unbelievable color of Laguna Verde changes based on the sediments in the lake. After crossing the border, the drive will be going through the Chilean National Reserve Los Flamencos, losing some 2,000 meters in altitude, before reaching San Pedro de Atacama. Overnight at the exceptional Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa blends effortlessly into the surrounds of the Catarpe Valley in the Salt Mountain Range, just outside of San Pedro de Atacama.


Day 9 - Spend the day relaxing and enjoying the facilities of the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa. Influenced by local village architecture, the architects who built this magnificent retreat are some of the finest in Chile and pulled out all the stops to create a tranquil haven amidst the terracotta-coloured

surrounds of the desert. Today your only decision is how much or how little to do. Partake in one of the excursions offered by the hotel or simply relax in the spa. Enjoy a wonderful farewell dinner.


Day 10 - This morning we will leave San Pedro de Atacama for Calama, the administrative center of the Loa Province -the province is named after Chile's longest river which runs through the Atacama Desert!

On the way to the airport stop at the Pukará de Quitor, a pre-Incan stone fortress looking over the San Pedro River and valley. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be assisted with check in for your private charter flight to Santiago.


Following your arrival in Santiago transfer to your international flight back home.

We will spend the rest of the day exploring the Salar and islands, visiting Isla de los Pescadores with its cactus forest and will have an unforgettable view of the immense salt lake and the Andes during a cocktail at sunset. At night, marvel at the clear sky and the amazing view of constellations and stars.


Day 6 - Set out onto the salt flat during the morning, crossing some 70 kilometers towards the southern edge. Once back on terra firma we will head further south to reach what is considered Bolivia's wildest area: Sud Lipez. At the small village of San Juan we will have a look at the tiny archaeological and ethnological museum. We will later have a beautiful view of the volcano Ollagüe and will drive past the four lakes Hedionda, Ramaditas, Canada and Chiarcota. This so-called Lagunas area has hundreds of flamingos and other birds that still thrive in these harsh surroundings. A yurt camp will be waiting for you at the end of the day.


Day 7 - Today you will have ample time to explore the colorful Lagunas, look for bird and wildlife, marvel at the colors of the rock formations and mountains, and take a bath in hot springs. Some of the colors of the land are so strange that one desert further southwest in the Pampa Jara has been named Dalí Desert.


Day 8 - Another long day will take through canyons, over passes reaching 4,800 meters, across stony plateaus and past sand dunes to reach the Eduardo Avaroa Natural Reserve. From our camp in the Siloli Desert we will drive to see intriguing rock formations, including the Stone Tree, to Laguna Colorada with its rare James's Flamingos. From there we will enter the Salar de Chalviri to reach Laguna Verde, located at the base of the famous volcano Licancabur. The unbelievable color of Laguna Verde changes based on the sediments in the lake. After crossing the border, the drive will be going through the Chilean National Reserve Los Flamencos, losing some 2,000 meters in altitude, before reaching San Pedro de Atacama. Overnight at the exceptional Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa blends effortlessly into the surrounds of the Catarpe Valley in the Salt Mountain Range, just outside of San Pedro de Atacama.


Day 9 - Spend the day relaxing and enjoying the facilities of the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa. Influenced by local village architecture, the architects who built this magnificent retreat are some of the finest in Chile and pulled out all the stops to create a tranquil haven amidst the terracotta-coloured

surrounds of the desert. Today your only decision is how much or how little to do. Partake in one of the excursions offered by the hotel or simply relax in the spa. Enjoy a wonderful farewell dinner.


Day 10 - This morning we will leave San Pedro de Atacama for Calama, the administrative center of the Loa Province -the province is named after Chile's longest river which runs through the Atacama Desert!

On the way to the airport stop at the Pukará de Quitor, a pre-Incan stone fortress looking over the San Pedro River and valley. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be assisted with check in for your private charter flight to Santiago.


Following your arrival in Santiago you will be transferred to Valparaiso to board Silver Cloud.
