Galapagos and Machu Picchu holidays
Galapagos and Machu Picchu make a wonderful holiday combination, allowing you to experience two of South America’s truly outstanding places in one trip. In Machu Picchu, Peru has perhaps the most breath-taking archaeological site in the world, but it also offers an amazing wealth of other magnificent sites: ancient, colonial, natural and scenic.
With flights between the coast of Ecuador and Peru’s capital city Lima less than 2 hours 30 minutes, logistically it works very well to combine holidays to Peru and Galapagos Islands. So whether you’d like to trek the Inca Trail, see the sun rise at Machu Picchu or paddleboard down the Amazon, we can create the perfect holiday in Peru to combine with your Galapagos cruise.
