Day 1 Quito

Resting beneath Volcan Pichincha, Quito is a vibrant city of contrasts. Explore the picturesque streets and cobblestone alleys on a walking tour. The many churches, cathedrals and colonial mansions reflect the history of the region and are well worth exploring further.

Days 2-3 Isla San Cristobal

Head off to San Cristobal Island in the Galapagos Archipelago. Saddle up on mountain bikes for a ride around the island, stopping at the Interpretation Centre to learn about the history of the Galapagos Islands. The next day visit Isla de Lobos and Cerro Brujo beach to observe blue-footed boobies. Take to the sea and swim or snorkel with playful sea lions, or opt to go diving so see the Galapagos from a totally different perspective.

Day 4-6 Isla Floreana/Isla Isabela

Glimpse dolphins frolicking in the waves and experience some of the GalapagosÂ’ best diving and snorkelling at Isla Floreana, also home to pink flamingoes, sea turtles and a diverse range of sea birds. Get a birdÂ’s-eye view of this magical landscape from Sierra Negra volcano, one of the most active volcanoes in the region. Visit the breeding centre of the giant tortoise and peek into the GalapagosÂ’ penal past at the convict-built Wall of Tears. Travel to Tintoreras by dinghy for a spot of snorkelling.

Day 7 Isla Santa Cruz

Hit the highlands of Isla Santa Cruz to observe the iconic Galapagos giant tortoise. See the amazing lava tunnels - striking geological formations that create a unique habitat for wildlife. This is also a top spot for panoramic views of the islands. Head to the white sands of Tortuga Bay to see the quirky marine iguanas playing in the breakers.

Day 8 Isla Santa Fe/Isla San Cristobal

Visit the interesting and informative Charles Darwin Research Station to meet the tortoises and land iguanas brought back from the brink of extinction. Snorkel Isla Santa Fe among marine iguanas, manta rays and surgeonfish. For a better look at the marine life, why not delve deeper into the ocean on an optional dive?
