The Galápagos Islands aren't just all about cruising! Over a week’s time and beginning and ending right in the heart of the action (the islands, of course), you’ll stay active by snorkelling, hiking, and exploring the diverse terrain before slowing things down with wildlife exploration in the company of an expert Naturalist Guide. With plenty of options to stick around after the trip’s done (or show up early for some independent adventuring beforehand), this is the perfect express trip for a most excellent Galápagos experience.

Itinerary

  • Arrive before 11:00am. Head out with your fellow travellers tonight. Watch out for lazing sea lions while walking along the malecón and stop at a local bar. Get to know the group over a few drinks. Cheers to new adventures with new friends!
  • The day is yours to explore San Cristóbal Island. You can snorkel at Kicker Rock or Isla Lobos, visit the white-sand beach of Playa Mann, or La Lobería to mingle with the resident sea lions.
  • Hop on a speedboat and head to Isabela Island. Soak up the views around you — you might even see dolphins or whales alonside the boat! Stop for lunch on Floreana Island where you can stretch your legs and enjoy a delicious meal at the G supported-community restaurant to support the locals before continuing on to Isabela.
