Ready to experience the untouched and adventure more? The untamed landscapes of South America may help to heed the call.

Explore deeper on lands that have been untouched by man for thousands of years, leaving behind the perfect nature lovers oasis, that is home to some of the most unique animal species in the world.
One of the shining jewels of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands offer that intoxicating “otherworldly” feeling– but with knowledgeable friends. Let us guide you through this unique landscape, where you’ll walk amongst giant tortoises, Blue-footed Boobies and dozens of endemic land species. Dive in (literally) and meet the water world face-to-face as you snorkel with tropical fish, playful seal pups and equatorial penguins. Ever wondered about yellow warblers and large-billed flycatchers? Sit back with a local wine as our expert Naturalist shares the wonder of this unique slice of heaven. Every day heralds a new discovery as we cruise between islands – choose as little or as much as you like on a Galapagos Islands Avalon Waterways cruise.
Peru is the twittering songbirds of the Amazon at dawn, the awe-inspiring sight of sunrise at Machu Picchu, and Cusco, the ancient Andean city and former Inca Empire capital. But delve deeper and you’ll find that the many flavours of Peru make an intoxicating holiday cocktail. Your on-board Naturalist will introduce you to an Amazonian world less seen, with giant water lilies with flowers the size of soccer balls, and places where tamarin, spider monkeys and iguanas roam in the rainforest. Head into the jungle on a nocturnal trek and return to a dinner of exquisite Peruvian cuisine. Pause with a Pisco Sour on deck as you live it up with Avalon on a captivating Amazon River Cruise.
