Time to explore

Upon your arrival in the capital of Ecuador, Quito you will have a welcome briefing from one of our guides who will discuss the details and questions you may have regarding the adventure.

Day 2

We will board a morning flight from Quito to the island of Baltra. Once we arrive, we head to the town of Puerto Ayora, the largest town in the Galapagos. From here we will take a quick boat to the largest island in the archipelago and where most of the volcanic activity in the Galapagos is reported. The island was formed by six shield volcanoes, Alcedo, Cerra Azul, Darwin, Ecuador, Sierra Negra and Wolf; five of them are still active which makes the island one of the most volcanically active places on earth. Galapagos Islands are located 600 miles (965.6 km) from the coast of Ecuador, it is really important to understand that you will have to take air, road and sea transportation to get here.

Day 3

Today we will go to explore Lava Tunnels, their amazing formations of lava created by the last eruptions of volcanic islands. This magical place has historically been filmed by BBC and National Geographic for their documentaries. It is a labyrinth of lava arches made of crystal clear water full of sea turtles, eagle rays, sea lions, sharks and more. After that, we will also visit «Los Tuneles» where we will have the incredible opportunity to snorkel and observe how the turtles sail from the mangroves to the open sea. As an alternative you will have other activaties options such as snorkeling at «Concha Perla», biking or just relaxing on the white sand beaches of Isabela Island. Certainly, this activities you’ll be able to do before going to «Los Tuneles» or after, you can organize that with your guide.

Day 4

Our destination is the rim of Sierra Negra Crater, an active volcano which last erupted in June 2018. Once there we will enjoy the beautiful views and explore the circumference of the massive crater. If we still have some energy left, we can continue our hike to Volcano Chico, a secondary crater that has a wild landscape of puffing fumaroles and colorful lava formations; great examples of the dramatic geological events that have formed the Galapagos Islands over millennia. In the afternoon, we will have a more relax activity and we will visit Tintoreras Islet by kayak. What a blast we are having exchanging laughter and knowledge while watching Galapagos Penguins, marine turtles and sea lions in their habitat.

Day 5

We continue our adventure by visitng the Charles Darwin Research Station so we will have to traverse from Isabela to Santa Cruz Island. In the afternoon, we will head to the ‘El Chato’ reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz, home to the famous Galapagos tortoises. Certainly hiking through El Chato’s beautiful landscape with these lumbering giants is an unforgettable experience! After that, we will also see other highland wildlife such as pintail ducks, egrets, flycatchers, finches and frigatebirds, which gather to wash the salt off their feathers at a fresh water lake. Afterwards, return to Puerto Ayora to spend the evening in Galapagos’ most populous town.
