Peru is a country with so much diversity to offer visitors. Explore Lake Titicaca, colonial Arequipa and the Colca Canyon, trek its mountains and raft its rivers, or enter deep into the Amazon rainforest on a river cruise spotting monkeys and rare birds in one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. However, the highlight of nearly everyone's Peru trip is Machu Picchu. Our favorite itinerary to experience this ancient wonder is the Machu Picchu by Train trip that takes you on a panoramic train ride from Cusco passing through the Sacred Valley of the Inca. Explore the great ruins of Machu Picchu and wander through village markets where ancient traditions live on in the hearts of the Andean people.
A Galapagos trip is an unparalleled wildlife experience on planet Earth. You'll snorkel with playful sea lions, admire amusing blue-footed boobies, and marvel at ancient tortoises. Choose from only the best yachts, catamarans, small cruise ships, & boutique hotels in the Galapagos all hand-selected by our team of experts. One cruise that highlights the best of the Islands is our Complete Galapagos Wildlife Cruise. Nowadays, Galapagos options aren't limited to taking a cruise, as land-based tours and active adventure trips have become increasingly popular. The Galapagos were Adventure Life's first destination offered nearly two decades ago, and for most, exploring this archipelago is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Therefore, getting every aspect of your trip perfect is our top priority.
These neighboring countries are a dynamic duo boasting glaciers, fjords, lakes, forests, mountains, desert, cosmopolitan cities, lovely vineyards, and even the “End of the World” in Patagonia. Their close proximity makes it easy for travelers to incorporate experiences in both countries. To visit the two destinations in one trip, we recommend combining our Beautiful Buenos Aires & Iguazu Falls in Argentina and the Classic W Trek in Torres del Paine, Chile.
