ITINERARY

Day 1Santa Cruz

You will be picked up at the airport by your private certified guide. Then, you will take the public bus to the Itabaca Channel, which you will cross on a ferry. Afterward, you will go with our taxi to a ranch in the highlands to see giant tortoises in their native environment! You will continue to Garrapatero Beach where you will have the opportunity to swim. In the evening, you will be free to wander around Santa Cruz. You can choose among a lot of restaurants in town for dinner. The Kioskos is also a great option to enjoy a delicious typical meal. Every night, a street in the center of Puerto Ayora is closed to traffic where restaurants put tables and chairs so the guests can eat outside. We recommend you a walk at night along the pier where you can often spot juvenile black tipsharks swimming!

Visits with a private guide
Meals included: Lunch

Day 2Uninhabited Island

You will participate in a yacht tour to an uninhabited Island. That will either be Santa Fé, Plazas, Bartolomé or Seymour. The destination will depend on availability, weekday and program of the National Park. We will let you know immediately which island is available when you book the tour. On Santa Fé and Plazas you can spot endemic land iguanas. Bartolomé is known for beautiful lava sceneries and on Seymour you can see frigate birds, land iguanas and, blue-footed boobies.

Day 3Santa Cruz - Isabela

At 6:30 am we will pick you up at the hotel and accompany you to the harbor, where the speed boat will take you at 7:00 am with other passengers to Isabela (approx. 2-hour ride). Our staff will welcome you and accompany you to your hotel. Morning free, you can walk to the Tortoise Breeding Center or to the Flamingo Lagoon. After lunch, you will visit Tintoreras, a small islet at 10mn navigation away from the port. No plants or animals have ever been brought to this island. First, you will have a panga ride looking for the small Galapagos penguins and sea lions. Then you will hike on the islet looking for marine iguanas, and sometimes you can even see white-tipped sharks resting in a lava tunnel. Afterward, you can snorkel in the bay to spot different fish, sea turtles, rays and penguins (order of activities depending on the tides). The evening is at your free disposal. You can have a drink at the beach-front bar de Beto, for sunset, and for dinner, we recommend the Coco Surf, but you have other several options in town to choose.

Meals included: Breakfast and lunch

Day 4Isabela

You have the choice between two different tours. Please let us know your choice when booking.

Tour 1 – Sierra Negra Volcano:
You will go by bus to the highlands and hike to Sierra Negra and Chico Volcano. Sierra Negra has the second largest active crater in the world, around 10kms, it is very impressive. As you continue to Chico Volcano, you will pass through impressive lava sceneries, and you will have breathtaking views of the north side of the island and of Fernandina Island. In total, it’s a 16kms hike (not steep but long hike, duration approx. 6 hours). A small lunch box is provided.

Shared tour max 16 people

Tour 2 – Cabo Rosa (“Tuneles”):
It’s a beautiful site 45 minutes boat ride from the port. This site is a lava formation of tunnels going under and over the sea level, in a shallow bay where you can usually spot the Galapagos penguins and sometimes some blue-footed boobies. However, the highlight is snorkeling. You will have a chance to see sea turtles, reef sharks, rays, sea lions, seahorses, and many tropical fish. This is one of the most beautiful sites of the archipelago. The tour takes about 5 hours.

Shared tour max 10 people on board

The rest of the day is at leisure. You can enjoy the beautiful beach in Isabela or you can snorkel in the Concha de Perla Lagoon (snorkel equipment in the free time is not included, but can be hired locally).
Meals included: Breakfast and lunch

Day 5Isabela - Baltra airport

At 5:20 am we will pick you up at your hotel and accompany you to the pier, where you will take the shared speed boat at 6:00 am to Santa Cruz (approx. 2-hour ride). At the harbor, our staff will welcome you and accompany you for breakfast. Afterward, your driver will bring you to the Itabaca Channel, which you will cross on a ferry. For the last part of your trip to the airport, you will take the public bus. Your driver will accompany you to the check-in at the airport, where your program ends with the flight back to the mainland. Baltra is the only 100% ecological airport in the world!
Please take in account that your flight does not depart before 12:30 pm. There is the option to take a small plane straight to Baltra for an additional cost, let us know if you are interested.

GENERAL INFORMATION

The program can change due to National Park rules or meteorological conditions without prior notice.
  • FLIGHT IN and OUT: must be out to/of BALTRA (code GPS). Departures from this island are operated either by LATAM or AVIANCA.
    - Please choose a flight leaving not before 12:30 pm.
  • WATER: You can fill up water bottles in all the hotels each morning before going on the tour. Tap water is not drinkable!
  • TRANSPORTATION: Is made by small speedboats between islands. Navigation times can take up to 3 hours due to the distance between islands and currents. We cannot control the ocean, if a swell comes in the ride can be bumpy, especially during the Garúa season (see below). If you are usually subject to motion sickness please bring parches or pills (you can also buy pills on Galapagos). From experience, the parches are really effective!
  • RYTHM OF THE TOUR: To make most out of the time spent on the Galapagos Islands, early wake ups are scheduled. If you would like to spend some extra days on your own without itinerary, we will be hap-py to help you to book extra nights before and/or after the tour.
  • ACTIVE TOUR: you need to be fit (be used to hiking and swimming). Specifically, the volcano hike is demanding and the group cannot wait too long for slow hikers. If you have doubts that you cannot follow the volcano hike we recommend you to book the alternative Cabo Rosa tour. The issue is that you cannot be left behind on the tour to the volcano due to the National Park restrictions; the group has to be always accompanied by the guide.

Couple Traveller

Had a blast in Galapagos, due entirely to these guys and a company they work with ‘Natural Selection’ (on Isabela).
Everything taken care of – from hotels and tours to taxis and boat fares. So much covered in 5 days, it would’ve been impossible without them. 10/10
