PERU: UNITING HEAVEN+EARTH
MAY 6- MAY 17, 2018
Our adventure takes us south to the Paracas and Nazca regions - home to cultures that date back to 5000 BC. These complex societies in South America laid the foundation for laterAndean societies, including the Inca. Their intricate and colorful textiles communicated their native beliefs and history.
We travel along the gorgeous Pacific Coast with its sparkling blue water bordering the sandy, rocky coastline. This spectacular contrast creates an unique environment known as the Paracas National Preserve and Ballestas Islands that rivals the Galapagos with its extensive variety of birds, sea lions, turtles, dolphins and even penguins! It is considered one of the richest and most uncommon ecosystems in the world!
This harsh, sandy, dry environment protected and preserved the Nazca Lines as well as the indigenous cultures' history. Here we fly high abovethe Earth to view some of the greatest archeological enigmas in the world! The Nazca Lines are geoglyphs that depict living creatures, stylized plants, 'imaginary' beings and geometric figures. These figures transformed the land into a highly symbolic, ritual and social/cultural landscape. They are an extraordinary example of the magical-religious world of the ancient Peruvian societies.
Of course our time in Peru can not be complete without being in the Sacred Valley of the Incas! We spend time along the Urubamba River in a special 5-star hideaway as we explore ancient cities and spiritual centers of the re-known Incas, including the famed Machu Picchu. We immerse ourselves in the Inca's Earth based philosophies only to find our true selves!
Join us on this unique 'low altitude' journey in Peru!
