Classic Peru & the Amazon: Your Way

Land and water have defined the development of two very different parts of Peru and this Private Journey introduces you to both. You’ll start at the very beginning with the monumental engineering of the Inca emperors and the elegant architecture of the Spanish conquistadors. Your itinerary takes you from cosmopolitan Lima to the delightful city of Cusco, the world class archaeological sites of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the great “city of the clouds,” Machu Picchu.

And then it’s off to the Amazon by way of the charming city of Iquitos, so remote that it can be reached only by air or by water. We’ve suggested a four night Amazon cruise (three and seven-night cruises are also available) on board the deluxe M/V Aqua or M/V Aria. The vessel’s coolly streamlined design recently won plaudits from Architectural Digest – this is high style on the Amazon. During your cruise you’ll travel deep into the protected Pacaya Samiria Reserve, a pristine wilderness area teeming with amazing wildlife and plant life. Highly trained interpreter Amazon River guides will take you on as many as three expeditions a day, aboard comfortable motorized skiffs and point out the multitude of small details that make the region special--a howler monkey hidden in a tree, a vivid butterfly resting on a leaf, a bird, such as the endangered harpy eagle, enjoying the tranquility of the Amazon basin. And when the day’s sightseeing is over, the comforts of your luxurious floating hotel await you.
