Galapagos Express Camping Adventure

The Galpagos Islands aren't just all about cruising try a camping experience on for size! Over a weeks time and beginning and ending right in the heart of the action (the islands, of course), youll stay active by snorkelling, diving, and hiking diverse terrain before slowing things down with wildlife exploration in the company of an expert naturalist guide. At the end of the day, youll camp out surrounded by the sounds of island wildlife. With plenty of options to stick around after the trips done (or show up early for some independent adventuring beforehand), this is the perfect express trip for a most excellent Galpagos experience.
