This meticulously terraced valley is the gateway to many of Peru`s most spectacular archaeological sites, including the iconic lost city of Machu Picchu, 2 hours away by train.

The Sacred Valley provides visitors an opportunity to experience the vibrant history of the area by admiring Incan sites like Ollantaytambo Fortress and Pisaq Ruins. And there is no shortage of activities for visitors here, offering an array of outdoor adventures such as hiking, horse back riding, and white water rafting on the Vilcanota River. To get to the Sacred Valley, one must first arrive in Cuzco, then take a ground transfer of around 2 hours through either one of 2 routes: the road to Pisaq or the road to Urubamba.

The Sacred Valley can be linked with other remarkable Peruvian destinations, and Featured Itneraries can be customized to your personal vacation preferences.
1 nights in Machu Picchu

"The Lost City of the Incas" is protected by steep cliffs, and lush green mountains. Generally accepted as the most important and captivating archaeological sites remaining from the Incan Empire, the complex, which includes temples, residences, fountains and hundreds of steps, was declared a World Heritage site in 1983, and voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.

Known as masterful architects and builders it is still a mystery how the Incas built this magical place, transported the huge stones that it is made of, or how this massive complex was kept secret for four hundred years.

Located 50 miles from Cuzco, travelers reach Machu Picchu by train, and accommodations are available adjacent to the citadel itself, or in the nearby town of Agua Calientes. Daytrips to the Lost City can also be arranged from Cuzco, or the Sacred Valley, and our flexible itineraries can help you combine Machu Picchu with other remarkable Peruvian destinations, choose from hand picked hotels, and plan additional activities.

Gateway to the Sacred Valley, and the lost city of Machu Picchu, Cuzco has a seemingly endless array of historic attractions, both Incan and colonial.

Cuzco abounds with excellent accommodations, and from here visitors can make day trips to the Sacred Valley, or ride the train Machu Picchu.

Aria Amazon, High Water Season (December - May)
Day 1: Friday IQUITOS / AMAZON RIVER

Embarkation and Check-In From the moment you step on board, enjoy the ARIA AMAZON's low-key luxury. As you settle into your handsomely appointed, generously proportioned suite, you will feel the vessel begin to move the beginning of one of your life's great adventures. We suggest you stand on the Upper Deck to take in the view, as the ARIA AMAZON leaves Iquitos behind.
Over the next three days, you will also sail along the two largest tributaries of the Peruvian Amazon, the Ucayali and the Maranon, as well as on the mighty Amazon itself. You are embarking on a spectacular journey to a place visited by only a very few of even the most experienced world travelers.
Safety Drill and Briefing on the Upper Deck Before dinner we will perform a routine safety drill. Then it's into the air-conditioned lounge, where you will learn about life on board, and will have the first nightly briefing about your next day's Amazon adventure. You will meet the naturalist guides and your cruise director, who will use video, photos, and maps to introduce the details of your journey deep into the Peruvian Amazon.
Welcome Dinner Sit down, relax, sip fine South American wine, toast the beginning of a beautiful journey and enjoy the innovative Amazonian cuisine, created by our Executive Chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, whose restaurant, Malabar, is the one of Lima's top ranked dining experiences. Schiaffino's imaginative use of local products - fruit, fish, spices - makes every meal a delightful adventure. (The menu always offers choices, including a vegetarian option.)
Perhaps sip a nightcap on the Upper Deck, under the stars, before retiring.

Day 2: Saturday AMAZON RIVER / YACAPANA RIVER / YARAPA RIVER / CLAVERO LAKE
Yacapana Islands Exploration and Dolphin watching. The locals call Yacapana Islands ''The Islands of the Iguana'' because of the large number of these reptiles - like tiny dinosaurs - which inhabit them. Amazon folklore says that if you touch an iguana, you will develop some of its characteristics and, as no one wants to look like them, these animals are well protected. We will also see the famous Amazon River dolphins, pink or gray, along our route. Amazonian people believe that these dolphins possess the power to turn into men and women of great beauty.
We will pass close to lush islands, giving you the opportunity to take good pictures of the tropical flora and fauna.
Return to the ARIA AMAZON
Breakfast a sumptuous daily breakfast buffet features a wide variety of dishes, including Peruvian specialties and fresh fruit juices.

As you float down the Yarapa, past the occasional fishermen paddling in their canoes, keep your binoculars ready to spot wildlife: terns, tropical songbirds, black collared hawks and sloth share this wonderful world with us. Upon our arrival at Lake Moringo, use your hooks to try to catch some of the ferocious piranhas and other fish species. As you fish, trained naturalist guides will tell the story of the lake and its inhabitants.
