TWO JEWELS OF SOUTH AMERICA: GALAPAGOS & MACHU PICCHU
One of the seven wonders of the modern world and the best conserved paradise of wildlife together for an unforgettable holiday in South America
If you come all the way from the other side of the world, our friends from Australia, or just crossing the ocean, from Europe, and even if you are part of the Americas, you should definitely take the opportunity of combining this amazing holiday to have a lifetime experience. Starting in the busy airport in Lima, we will head to the beautiful and breathing Inca essence of Cusco. The whole city gives the vibe of the ancient residents than once formed this amazing civilization. While we learn about their magnificent organization and ways of living, we are approaching to the Sacred City. Little towns in the way pass by the train ride of around 3 hours until reaching Aguas Calientes. After the altitude of Cusco, is a nice tropical weather, easier to discover. Then we start our way up to the mountain, turn after turn to have the first peak of the ruins. You can see thousands of photos preparing yourself for what is ahead, but nothing will compare to that first image, it will stay in your memory forever! The Large city in front of the iconic mountain, a piece of advice: leave the photos for later, enjoy that first moment with your own eyes and keep it in your heart as the best gift you can get. Walking through the paths of the Incas is magical, out of this world, simply mystical. All the constructions in the surroundings, their meaning and history are part of what we evolve as on later years. After having this spiritual journey, we lower the altitude, sea level to see a totally different side of the world we live in. Nature, landscapes untouched by men, where animals are still on control, they are still home and we are the guests. The huge Isabela island, the youngest one, moves its waters for all the living things underneath, molds its lava formations around huge craters and leaves its volcanoes evolve and move at their will. One indescribable sunset and sunrise, found nowhere else, sea lions taking sun baths right next to you and one of the smallest penguins on earth are just a couple of the things you will find on the Galapagos. The very place where Charles Darwin got the inspiration to write the Origen of the Species will be part of your journey. The huge Galapagos Turtle walks peacefully while we watch. Is just not possible to talk about all the beauty you will find in this perfect combination, you should come see it yourself!
