Ancient Journeys: A Vision of the New World is an album by German cross-cultural new-age band Cusco, released in 2000. Released three years after the previous album, this one peaked at #2 on the Billboard Top New Age Albums chart.[2]

This album continues somewhat in the flavor of Apurimac III, but is dedicated to ancient journeys of adventure and discovery. The musical concepts reflect on ancient rhythms and melodies, and depict ancient kingdoms, sea voyages, conquests and land explorations that cross continents.
