Embark on a sweeping adventure that encapsulates all the wildness of Galápagos balanced with cultural and historic experiences of Machu Picchu & the Land of the Inca. You’ll explore Galápagos in depth aboard the 48-guest National Geographic Islander, an intimately-scaled vessel. And you’ll journey to contemporary Lima, and historic Cusco, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Plus, overnight at Machu Picchu and watch the sunrise over this fabled city.

Encounter abundant wildlife in Galápagos
Blue-footed boobies. Flightless cormorants. Darwin’s finches. Pink flamingos. Sea lions on beaches or gamboling underwater. Giant tortoises grazing in the highlands. The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its uniqueness and lack of fear, allowing you the rare experience of being treated as an equal in the wild world. Each island contains endemic species, and you’ll have the opportunity to see a panoply of Galápagos’ creatures in their native habitats—on land and in the sea.

See day break of Machu Picchu, plus experience Cusco and the Sacred Valley of the Inca
Walk amongst 3000-year-old cities built by the Incan empire and explore the most stunning archaeological sites in the Peru. This week-long exploration is carefully planned to allow you to acclimate on the trip from sea level to the peaks of Machu Picchu. Your expedition team of local experts and historians will also open you to the colonial and contemporary Peru that lies alongside the Incan wonders. You’ll visit the massive Inca stone fortress of Ollantaytambo before relaxing in the luxurious 31-room Orient Express Sanctuary Lodge. Before sunrise, you’ll hike to the Sun Gate, the ancient final checkpoint to Machu Picchu. See dawn break over the quiet ruins and then descend into this fabled city with only a handful of visitors.

Explore with an exceptional team
Explore Galápagos under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, three handpicked naturalists, including a National Geographic certified photo instructor and an undersea specialist, plus a wellness specialist. In Peru you’ll explore with a veteran Peruvian tour plus several veteran local guides that join us along the way in the Sacred Valley of the Inca, Machu Picchu, and Cusco. Your team’s knowledge and passion for the region is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The National Geographic Islander is a versatile 164-foot twin-hulled vessel with 24 spacious cabins comfortably accommodating 48 guests. She is a sturdy expedition ship, designed for year-round discovery and active exploration of the Galápagos and can reach places inaccessible to larger ships due to its small size.

Accessibility means freedom. Our captains have decades of sailing experience in the regions we explore. They know when and where to navigate so that you feel the places we visit are all ours. Thanks to our sturdy fleet of Zodiacs and virtually untippable kayaks, you can be off the ship and out exploring within a moment’s notice.

Public Areas: Ship is fully air-conditioned. Covered deck with hammocks, chairs and tables; Doctor's Office; Fitness Center; Global Market; LEXspa; Library; Lounge with full-service bar and facilities for films, slide shows and presentations; and Sky Deck. Our Ecuadorian Captain and Officers welcome guests to the Bridge in accordance with our "Open Bridge" policy.

Meals: Served in single seatings with unassigned tables for an informal atmosphere and easy mingling. Menu is international with an Ecuadorian flair.

Cabins: All cabins have a window with an outside view, private facilities, and climate controls.

Expedition Equipment: Hydrophone, kayaks, snorkeling gear, Splash-Cam, underwater video camera, video microscope, wet suits, and Zodiac landing craft.

Special Features: Guest internet access, laundry service, LEXmarket, and Wellness Program. A ship's doctor, Undersea Specialist, and Video Chronicler are also onboard.
