Inkallpa Valle Sagrado: The Sacred Valley of the Incas, 2 nights
Type: Three-Star Hotel

Description: Hotel Inkallpa is surrounded by mountains and silence; it gives you the feeling of being very far away from civilization. Running through the green fields is a small river with fountains and waterfalls. If you come at the right time the fruit trees are in bloom and you can pick your very own fresh peaches, raspberries and few other fruit that grow on the property. At the end of your day you can return to the hotel and we recommended you request a message before returning to your room and enjoying the beautiful sunset that falls over Sacred Valley with a glass of wine. Situated only 20 minutes from the Ollantaytambo train station, from here you can take the train that leaves to Machupicchu.

National Geographic Endeavour: Galapagos Islands, 7 nights
Type: Cruise Ship

Description: Don’t let her accommodating public and private spaces, the posh quiet and rich collection of books in her Library, or the lavish observation space on her decks fool you — the National Geographic Endeavour is an expedition ship, designed for discovery and active exploration, not just passing-by. The National Geographic Endeavour heads out equipped with a fleet of Zodiacs, enabling us to make landfall in all the remote and riveting locations that beckon! We offer kayaking opportunities wherever possible and frequent walks or hikes. We can set a pace for more demanding walkers and simultaneously provide a rewarding experience for strollers, too. There’s no age limit to our adventurous opportunities — anyone who feels fit and is interested is welcome to participate. And because navigation is an underlying theme, our “Open Bridge” policy will provide you with one of the more gratifying memories of the many you’ll make. The spontaneity and flexibility that characterizes our expedition style means there is literally something new to experience and enjoy daily.
