Day 1 Quito/Isla Baltra/Isla Santa Cruz
Rise early and leave Quito behind for the unique wildlife of the Galapagos. Breathe in fresh sea air and spend some time on Bachas Beach for a first glimpse of Galapagos wildlife. Discover why these islands developed a reputation among mariners as strange lands, long before Darwin visited.
Day 2 Isla Genovesa
Spot fur seals and marine iguanas before taking to the waters for some swimming or snorkelling.
Day 3 Isla Bartolome
Awake to the relaxing sound of waves lapping at the boat hull. Explore the solidified lava sheets of Sullivan Bay and see lava bubbles etched into its surface.
Day 4 Isla Santa Cruz/Quito
Take an optional visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz to see drawings of the evolutionary development of endemic species and other fascinating information about the area. Then, it's time to say good-bye to the Galapagos and take a flight back to Quito where this once-in-a-lifetime adventure ends on arrival at the airport.
