This adventure combines a voyage through Galapagos, whose unique wildlife adaptations gave rise to Darwin's notes on evolution, and a journey through the land of the Incas. Begin aboard a first-class yacht in the Galapagos Islands and discover plants and animals unique to particular islands as you travel throughout the archipelago. Our expert naturalist guides explain how these species have evolved and adapted over time. During an 8-day cruise you will visit the major wildlife sites, including some of the more remote outer islands. Meet exotic and bizarre wildlife as you venture among cinder cones, lava flows, white and black sand beaches, and rocky cliffs and cool off snorkeling in clear equatorial waters. Then head out to the Andes of Peru and discover the land of the Incas. Specialists in archaeology, history, and Andean culture will take you through the monumental Inca stone temples and restored agricultural terraces of Quechua Indian villages in Cusco, the Urubamba Valley, and Machu Picchu.
