Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • You'll be welcomed at the airport in Quito and transferred to Casa Gangotena, in the heart of the historic city. You have the afternoon to settle-in and explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Today you'll have a private guided tour of Quito.

  • This morning you'll be transferred to the airport in time for your flight to the Galapagos. On arrival in San Cristobal you'll be met by a member of the Endemic cruise boat, who will escort you to the pier for embarkation. After lunch and settling-in you'll have your first excursion, visiting the Bachas beach.

  • In the morning you'll visit Darwin Bay, where you can relax on the beach or optional snorkel in the clear waters around Genovesa Island, home to the elusive red-footed boobies. After lunch you'll explore Prince Philip's Steps.

  • Today's attractions include stops at Los Gemelos, two deep pit craters situated in the Scalesia forest and after lunch you will land at Sullivan Bay to explore the lava.

  • The first stop today is Sierra Negra Volcano on Isabela Island, which is the largest volcano in the Galapagos. In the afternoon you'll visit Muro de Lagrimas or 'Wall of Tears', one of the few human historical sites in the archipelago.

  • Today you'll enjoy two of the more remote areas of Isabela Island: Elizabeth Bay and Urbinas Bay. You'll enjoy a boat ride, spotting bird and seal life before an optional afternoon snorkeling.

  • In the morning you'll walk along Tagus Cove to see the graffiti dating back to the 1800s and explore by Zodiac to find boobies and other seabirds. The afternoon gives you the opportunity to spot flightless cormorants at Punta Espinoza and snorkel to spot sea turtles.

  • The last full day takes you ashore to one of the most scenic beaches in the Galapagos, Cerro Brujo. In the afternoon, visit Isla Lobos, a great place for snorkeling and a nesting place for blue-footed boobies.

  • You'll visit San Cristóbal's Interpretation Center in the morning before your transfer to the airport to begin your trip home.
