What you can expect

Embark on a 4-day excursion to uncover the breath-taking landscapes, tropical climate, and spectacular wildlife that fills the volcanic islands of the Galapagos. Set off on an adventure that includes hiking, snorkelling, and swimming on Santa Cruz and 2 uninhabited islands.

Day 1: Arrival on Baltra, Transfer to Santa Cruz & Tour of the Highlands Upon arrival on Baltra, an English-speaking guide greets you and leads you to Santa Cruz Island. After checking into your hotel, embark on a tour of the Highlands, an area filled with overgrown forest, giant tortoises, and ancient underground lava chambers. .

Days 2 & 3: Visits to 2 Uninhabited Islands Travel by boat from Santa Cruz to 2 of the tiny nearby uninhabited islands—Bartolomé, North Seymour, South Plaza, or Santa Fe. On each day, you're given plenty of time to venture into the outdoors to explore the region's range of wildlife. Scope out blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, and goofy Galapagos penguins. After lunch, strap on snorkelling gear to discover friendly sea lions, colourful fish, and spotted turtles before heading back to Santa Cruz.

Day 4: Transfer to Baltra & Departure After checking out of your hotel, make one final stop at the former underground magma chambers of the Twin Craters before returning to the airport to catch your departing flight.
