Golden Horizon will depart Ecuador to dock at Salaverry in northern Peru. This is the jumping-off point for exploring the archaeological excavations of Trujillo and the chance to gain an insight into the Chimú kingdom. Our next stop is Lima. With an overnight here, there’s ample time to enjoy the city’s incredible dining scene and tour its UNESCO-listed historic centre. It’s also possible to head up into the Andes for a once-in-a-lifetime overnight visit to Machu Picchu, a 15th-century Inca citadel among precipitous mountains.

We then sail on to Pisco, famous for its grape brandy and much-loved cocktail, the Pisco sour. Here, explore the Ballestas Islands for the chance to spot sea lions and Peruvian boobies.

At Matarani, disembark and head out towards Arequipa for city exploration in the shadow of the snow-capped El Misti volcano. Once we cross into Chile, you can explore the 19th-century mining town of Iquique or visit the Pintados Geoglyphs in the mountains. While we overnight in Antofagasta, there will be an opportunity for stargazing in the arid Atacama Desert. Our voyage ends with wine-tastings in Coquimbo or penguin-spotting on the Choros Islands.

We then sail on to Pisco, famous for its grape brandy and much-loved cocktail, the Pisco sour. Here, explore the Ballestas Islands for the chance to spot sea lions and Peruvian boobies.
