Atlas Ocean Voyages - Embark on Luxe-Adventure Journeys
Taking you into the jungles, ancient empires and cultural highlights of South America aboard a small, expedition-style ship, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in exploration like never before. With fewer than 200 guests on board, there’s space to make personal connections with like-spirited travelers. Complete with an all-inclusive, onboard experience, every luxe-adventure voyage perfectly balances simple elegance with exhilarating experiences.
Making Travel Dreams Come True
As you check off your bucket list navigating the famous Panama Canal on Atlas’ “9-Night Colón to Panama City” voyage, a sense of exploration will inspire you to look beyond the ordinary. Take a walk in the clouds in Puntarenas, Costa Rica as you marvel at the cloud forest trails amid lush vegetation, an open hummingbird garden, rivers and cascades. Or visit The NATUWA Wildlife Sanctuary of Costa Rica, where you can see and learn about the sloths, jaguars and macaws that call it home.
From the port of Fuerte Amador, embark on a land excursion that takes you to an “Authentic Emberá Village Experience.” With a knowledgeable guide, you’ll explore the jungles of central Panama, traveling upriver to come upon the village of an indigenous tribe. Here, you’ll be engaged in a rich, cultural exchange. Or opt for an exhilarating boat cruise through the Panama Canal into the lush rainforest of Gatun Lake, where you may encounter the likes of capuchin and howler monkeys, three-toed sloths, crocodiles and other wildlife. Your rainforest adventures are made complete with the Aerial Tram Experience, introducing you to the forest’s wonder from its upper canopy.
Vibrant Explorations of South America
Exploring indigenous cultures and UNESCO World Heritage Sites on Atlas Ocean Voyages’ “7-Night Panama City to Lima” luxe-adventure journey, you have the opportunity for experiences like traversing the Cerro Jaboncillo. This unique archaeological site allows you to observe a distinct and complex society established between 900 and 1,500 CE. But you can go further with an exclusive visit to the technical area, which is normally closed to regular visitors, but open for you.
Get the blood pumping with a Pacoche Forest Trek in Manta, Ecuador, where you may have the opportunity, at the park rangers’ discretion, to see a sea turtle nest during hatching season. Or take the road to the Sun and Moon Temple along the Moche River in Salaverry, Peru, where you can admire ancient Moche art.
For a truly unforgettable voyage, you can choose an optional post-cruise immersion that takes you on a 5-day/4-night journey through Peru’s cultural highlights. From the Sacred Valley to the historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu, you’ll discover the indigenous influences that continue to thrive in the country, all the way from the ancient Incans to today’s Ccorccor community. Along the way, you’ll explore one of the most impressive buildings of Incan Cusco, the Coricancha Temple (the Golden Temple), dedicated to the worship of the Sun God, and rumored to have been covered in gold inside. Your immersion includes a stay at the Westin Lima Hotel, surrounded by stunning scenery and upscale shops and restaurants.
Design Your Perfect Day Ashore
Offering optional half-day or full-day private tours, you’re in charge of your adventures in your destination. Atlas provides the private guide, vehicle and driver, and you curate your itinerary as you wish. Discover hidden gems and landmarks on your own, like the pre-Incan ruins of Rumipamba in Quito, Ecuador. With customizable and flexible private tours, the choice is yours.
