Travcoa has debuted a new Independent Journey that explores two of South America’s most well-known UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Ancient Mysteries & Sacred Sites: Easter Island & Machu Picchu Independent Journey itinerary spans 12 days, two countries and a wealth of cultural offerings. Guests start their journey by exploring Easter Island for three days with a resident archaeologist, getting up close with three of the most famous moai statues there. Days 5-12 are then dedicated to traveling through Peru, visiting areas including Lima, Cusco, the Urubamba Valley and Machu Picchu. At Machu Picchu, guests take part in a privately guided tour of the ruins. When most visitors leave, guests of the Ancient Mysteries & Sacred Sites itinerary will enjoy accommodations at Machu Picchu’s only hotel, Sanctuary Lodge—providing views of the sunset and following sunrise over the ruins, without a crowd of tourists getting in the way.
Departures from North America are available every Saturday. Rates start at $6,995 pp dbl land-only, with a $1,000 savings available for guests traveling before Oct. 31. For more information, call (800) 992-2203 or visit travcoa.com.
