Private Journeys and Charters

Sometimes you already know with whom you want to travel...

...and what you want to do. Private Journeys are not only exclusive, but they're flexible and fun.

The INCA team is expert at conjuring your travel dreams into reality. Almost nothing is impossible, from seeing the elusive Mangrove Finch in Galapagos to a Turkish honeymoon, from landing arrangements for a private jet to exploring the depths of Peru's Parque Manu. Or even five days at Machu Picchu!

Do it your way!

Most private trips are for family groups of four to sixteen people who want to get away and enjoy uninterrupted time together, working with a special interest, be it flora, fauna, weaving, celebrating a family event, or relaxing.

Who are some of those that have selected INCA for their private adventures?

  • A museum director who wanted a trip more intimate and inclusive than the one her museum was hosting

  • Avid birders hoping to see all the endemic Galapagos species

  • A newspaper tycoon who liked to spend real time with his family

  • A sportswear company shooting its spring catalog

  • Weavers learning the Andean art of the backstrap loom

  • High tech entrepreneurs in search of low-tech inspiration and relaxation

  • A family including Galápagos on their private around-the-world jet tour

  • A surprise birthday for Grandma from her grandkids (and they all got to go, too)

  • Countless family groups getting away to enjoy uninterrupted time together, discovering nature and new cultures
