    Galápagos Islands Cruise

    Sitting 563 miles west of Ecuador, the legendary volcanic archipelago, which inspired Darwin’s The Origin of Species, has attracted visitors to its island sanctuary. Today, the Galápagos Islands are still home to the world’s most fascinating creatures and unique species such as the marine iguana and the giant Galápagos tortoise. Blue-footed boobies and birds of countless variations grace these rugged shores, and marine mammals thrive in the pristine waters off Santa Cruz, Santiago, and San Cristobal Island to name a few. A Galápagos Islands cruise is an expedition in unequaled adventure.

    Peruvian Amazon River Cruise

    Peru’s Amazon basin is home to the richest biodiversity of any tropical rainforest amid the world’s most extraordinary and fascinating flora and fauna born of billions of years of evolution. More than 1/3 of the world’s known species live in the Amazon Rainforest—including thousands of species of fish, as well as turtles, iguanas, anacondas, pink dolphins, giant otters, sloths, monkeys, and every colour of butterfly you can imagine—just to name a few. An Amazon River cruise also reveals the home of Native villagers who carry on the ancient traditions of their ancestors, still inextricably woven to the gifts of the rainforest.
