About This Trip

This is a once in a lifetime trip to take in three of the most powerful, enchanting and humbling sites in the world. Every day on this trip will fill you with wonder as you navigate three of South America's most beautiful countries in search of their greatest natural treasures.  

 

Starting in Ecuador, you will spend ten nights cruising in the extraordinary Galapagos Islands. Here you will get up close with nature as you explore the lands where Darwin toyed with the idea of natural selection. Swim with sea lions, walk right up to giant tortoises, and discover every corner of these beautiful islands with your expert crew.  

 

From Ecuador, business class flights will take you down to Lima, capital of Peru. You will spend time exploring this UNESCO city and getting a feel for its vibrant way of life, before heading off to Cusco, to delve into the depth of history Peru has to offer. There are so many temples and sanctuaries based around Cusco, that we spend a day examining these before taking the train up to the main event, Machu Picchu. Taking the train to Agua Calientes and climbing the winding path to Machu Picchu is one of those life-changing events. To see this site and spend time exploring it, is a mystical experience not to be missed.  

 

Then, from one life-changing experience to another, but this time one that is entirely natural. You fly down from Cusco to see possibly the greatest waterfalls in the world, the Iguazu Falls. Nothing can compare to the power and drama of Iguazu. Whether it is while you are standing over the roaring Gargantua del Diablo, or wandering the beautiful lower paths, you will feel like a speck in the face of this towering powerhouse of nature. And then it wouldn’t be Brazil without finishing off the trip in Rio de Janeiro. With three days to enjoy this glorious, vivacious city, you will finish your trip with a flourish.

highlights

South America has so much to offer, so many incredible sights to see and we wanted to make sure that if you only have a couple of weeks, that you get to see them all. And as with everything, we want to go deep, to offer that immersive experience so you feel that you have really explored a place, had a chance to discover what it is all about, to create memories.  

 

Spending ten days exploring the Galapagos on the Xpedition is just that. You will explore fully, checking tiny bays, walking to get the best views and getting all those amazing wildlife experiences you have always dreamed of. In Peru, we didn’t just want you to see Machu Picchu, glorious though it is. Discovering the people, food and architecture of Lima and the incredible history of Cusco is massively important. And it wouldn’t be a visit to Brazil without sampling the samba heartbeat of Rio de Janeiro. We will take you to the hotspots, the must-sees, but also let you sample its exciting gastronomy, bar and beach culture.  

 

We have dug deep to ensure a world-class, simply outstanding tour of the very best of South America.
