Edited by Travel Weekly

    Chimu Adventures has announced the start of the 2024 Great Chimu Incentive, an incentive opportunity for Australian travel advisors.

    The eight top sellers will win a place on a famil to South America where they’ll discover the Amazon and the Galapagos Islands.

    As the one-stop-shop for all Polar and Latin American enquiries, advisors are encouraged to ‘Think Antarctica, Think Chimu!’. To assist with this, they are running the Great Chimu Incentive, with advisors across Australia encouraged to get involved.

    Famil attendees will have the opportunity to discover Quito before exploring the Amazon River from La Selva Lodge, located within Ecuador’s Yasuní Biosphere Reserve and on the borders of the famous Yasuní National Park. Then, they’ll fly to the Galapagos and board the M/C Elite, a private luxury catamaran, for a sailing adventure through the Galapagos Islands.

    The incentive is part of the Great Chimu Sale, with up to 40 per cent exclusive trade offers on over 30 ships and 400 itineraries amongst Polar and Latin America deals.

    Want to win? Here’s what advisors need to know.
