Silversea Announce Galapagos Land Tours

Silversea Cruises has unveiled a collection exciting land tours, offering their guests the opportunity to explore the highlights of Peru and the Galapagos Islands.

The luxury cruise line, which is due to start sailing the Galapagos region in autumn 2013, has announced the tours to compliment their guest’s South American experience. Included in the program are trips to explore Machu Picchu and a journey along the fabled Amazon River.

Commenting on the tour options, Silversea Cruises' vice president of air and land programs, Darius Mehta said:

“Because the Galapagos Islands are such a unique destination and on everyone’s list of must-see places, we wanted to make sure our pre/post-cruise land programs would add as rich an experience”.

The new South American program includes the following tour options:

  • The Amazon Explorer, a six-night post-cruise journey along the Amazon river
  • Puno & Lake Titicaca, a four-night trip to explore the Andes and Lake Titicaca, including a tour of the Sillustani Tombs.
  • The Machu Picchu Explorer, which includes a trip to the ancient ruins as well as a rail journey through rural Peru.
  • The Machu Picchu Grande Explorer, which includes a trip on the Hiram Bingham and a stay at the Sanctuary Lodge, a luxury hotel located in close proximity to Machu Picchu.
