Get a taste of the spectacular volcanic landscapes and mesmerizing wildlife of the Galapagos Islands during this land-based adventure. Go hiking through pahoehoe lava flows to the crater of Sierra Negra volcano, swim alongside friendly sea lions at La Loberia, get up close to Galapagos giant tortoises at the Charles Darwin Research Center and spot Galapagos penguins and frigatebirds while kayaking along the coast.
Offering a shorter alternative to our award-winning Galapagos Unbound adventure, this lodge-to-lodge vacation covers three different islands across six days. Rather than trying to rush through the entire archipelago to discover its incredible wildlife and geological sites, we’ve designed a trip that offers an immersive experience in three of the most fascinating islands - Isabela, San Cristobal and Santa Cruz.
Explore the vibrant hubs of Puerto Ayora and Puerto Villamil to discover the archipelago’s human history. Then bunk down each night in locally-owned lodges to experience the Galapagos culture and hospitality first hand while supporting sustainable travel and tourism in the archipelago. Experience everything that Isabela, San Cristobal and Santa Cruz have to offer while being accompanied by our highly-experienced local guides who will share their unique insights on this fascinating destination.
If you are looking for an even more flexible Galapagos Island Vacation we can still offer 2 Island tours that depart any day. These can be 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 days long.
Note: Custom departures of 1 day or more available upon request. Please call 800-451-6034 for more information.
