    Relaxation at sea

    The Heritage of Peru and Ecuador
    Your South American expedition starts in Salaverry, where you will discover important cult centres: the excursion to the dragon temples of Huaca and Chan Chan* takes you to the one-time capital of the Chimú empire, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site and probably one of the biggest mud-built cities of the world. Equally spectacular is the Moche Valley with the pyramids of the sun and moon*- the monumental dimensions of the temples of the Mochica are an invitation to explore on your own initiative.

    Isla de la Plata/Ecuador

    Monday, 16.07.2018

    Esmeraldas/Ecuador, from 7.00 to 18.00 hrs

    Further north, the HANSEATIC arrives at the port of Esmeraldas, where broad Pacific beaches, pelicans flying in formation, the highest mango trees in the world and the clatter of the marimba create a thoroughly Caribbean atmosphere. A plantation walk* on a private hacienda introduces you to Ecuador's top exports - bananas, pineapples, cocoa and coffee. You may prefer to discover the colonial heritage of the capital if you opt for the flight to Quito*, where richly ornamented churches still have stories to tell of the days of the conquistadors.

Together with our experts you can penetrate far into the green depths of this UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, which provides a home for jaguars, tapirs and harpy eagles. While the sun glitters through the thick leafy roof, you will meet the Chocó Indians. These indigenous natives have preserved their customs and traditions to the present day and live in perfect harmony with nature.

    A quite different scenario meets you in Scarborough on Tobago: blue skies, white sand and waving palm trees on the Pigeon Point private beach. Get a phenomenal view of the underwater world* and travel in a glass-bottomed boat to the coral gardens, where you will also be tempted to swim and snorkel. If you choose the hike to the waterfall*, on the other hand, you can look forward to a refreshing bathe in a natural pool after penetrating the lush vegetation.
