Summary

Discover the endemic wildlife, bizarrely beautiful landscapes and underwater treasures of the Galapagos Islands on this immersive 17-day cruise. Explore both the traveller’s favourites and quiter parts of the archipelago, all with a passionate local naturalist on hand to guide you over pahoehoe lava and through marine iguana colonies. Snorkel in clear waters off the coast of Isla Espanola, paddle through a green turtle breeding grove on Isla Floreana, look out for mottled Galapagos hawks on Isla Fernandina, and wander between sea lions lounging on beaches with red, black and white sand.

Remarks

Highlights

  • Quito is so much more than a gateway to the Galapagos. Misty mountain scenery, a heart-melting Old Town and world-class cuisine make this one of South America’s most dazzling destinations
  • Snorkelling in the Devil’s Crown is like nothing else. This underwater volcano – full of sea lions, turtles and rays – boasts some of the best snorkelling on the archipelago
  • This trip is one for the bird-lovers. Witness the albatross colonies of Isla Espanola and seek out the rare red-footed booby on Isla Genovesa
  • Gaze in awe at the largest trees in the Galapagos on a hike through Santa Fe’s Opuntia forest
  • Plant your feet on 100-year-old pahoehoe lava as you walk across Bahia Sullivan, perhaps spotting a marine iguana or two
  • An included visit to the San Cristobal Interpretation Centre fills you in on the archipelago’s geography, history, conservation projects and more
