PATAGONIA UNBRIDLEDPatagonia is as vast and sparsely populated as it is dramatic. This remote region at the end of the Andes is home to Cape Horn, Tierra del Fuego and the expansive Torres del Paine National Park. It also includes the iconic Monte Fitz Roy, the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier and more.
This presentation will offer jaw-dropping images of the region’s incredible natural beauty from a variety of both active Patagonia expeditions and luxury Patagonia vacations, and will also offer practical advice on traveling through this vast area of wilderness and cultural intrigue.
MACHU PICCHU AND BEYOND Home to ancient civilizations, vast archaeological marvels in unbelievable settings, vibrant indigenous cultures, and natural wonders spanning from unspoiled Amazon rainforest to towering Andean peaks, Peru inspires awe at every turn.
Jordan Harvey‘s presentation will feature inspired images from Peru’s various regions while offering practical itinerary planning and travel advice for Peru including hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, less physical and more luxurious trips to Machu Picchu, Amazon Jungle lodges and travel, and Lake Titicaca.
EXPLORING THE BREATHTAKING GALAPAGOS ISLANDS AND MAINLAND ECUADOR The Galapagos Islands, some 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, is one of the most unique, pristine and remarkable destinations in the world. Ecuador is home to nearly every ecosystem imaginable. Visits to Ecuador can include cloud forest, Andean Highlands, historic haciendas, remote indigenous communities, volcanoes, Amazon Jungle, colonial cities, and of course, the famed Galapagos Islands.
This presentation will show astounding photos of the Galapagos Islands and mainland Ecuador, as well as share practical advice on everything from picking the perfect Galapagos cruise for you to where to go in mainland Ecuador and how to plan the perfect itinerary.
