GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

4 Days

“Visit unique islands with extraordinary geographical highlights, brimming with endemic wildlife.”

The amazing thing about choosing a Galapagos Island Hopping program is that in a short amount of time, you can still do a week’s worth of exploring. You can visit unique islands with extraordinary geographical highlights, brimming with endemic wildlife, along with opportunities to snorkel in shimmering, unspoilt waters with a colorful array of tropical species and ocean creatures like sea turtles, rays, Galapagos sharks, and even Galapagos Penguins. All this, and still, you will be able to return to your hotel in time for some well-deserved rest and relaxation, along with time to spare to explore the charming streets of Puerto Ayora.

3 Nights Navigable Tours

ITINERARY

Upon arriving at Baltra Island, a guide will be awaiting your arrival to assist you to cross to Santa Cruz and visit the highlands. You will stop at the impressive Twin Craters known as “Los Gemelos”.
Continuing on you explore lava tunnel remains and watch Giant tortoises roam the thick forest in their natural habitat. You will have lunch in the unique flora of the Galapagos while finches and warblers fly to and from.
An added experience in the highlands is “Trapiche”. You will learn how to make the popular liquor “Agua Ardiente” made from sugar cane, as well as a detailed organic coffee presentation of how it grows well in the volcanic soil.
