10-day Galapagos Adventure Tour 2020

10-day Galapagos Adventure Tour 2020

Tour Description

Immerse yourself in the wildlife, culture and unique ecosystem the Galapagos has to offer as we hike, bike, kayak, and snorkel our way across the archipelago. We’ll spend the week snorkeling with curious sea lions, grazing sea turtles, majestic rays, and an abundance of tropical fish while visiting each of the 4 inhabited islands. We’ll start with a downhill bike ride through the San Cristobal Highlands learning about the vegetation before taking to the water for our first snorkel at the amazing Kicker Rock. We’ll hike up an active volcano to one of the biggest calderas in the world on Isabela Island, take a coastal kayak in the Isabela’s beautiful Bay and lounge on a black sand beach on the mysterious Floreana Island. Blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas and frigate birds populate each island. Up close encounters are common so have your camera ready!

Each island has historical and educational sites we’ll visit along the way to learn about the human history and the many programs in place to maintain this delicate environment through research, education and sustainable tourism. We’ll be staying in quaint hotels and dining in local restaurants that get you off the beaten path and into the amazing culture. No tour would be complete without an opportunity to observe giant tortoises in their natural habitat or taking a stroll through an ancient lava tunnel! Experience Galapagos amidst the animals, the locals and the landscapes in this unforgettable 10-day adventure.
