Experience nature on this Galapagos Islands animal adventure from Quito to Isla Santa Cruz
The Galapagos Islands are home to some of the rarest animals on the planet and this trip gives the whole family a unique opportunity to learn about the biology and diversity of this paradise. Everyone will enjoy spotting the myriad animals in their natural environment as they graze, sleep and play on the beaches, mountains and rocks of the islands of Santa Cruz and Cristobal as well as exploring the human history of Floreana. Snorkel with sea lions, marvel at the plodding majesty of giant tortoises, spot frigate birds, blue-footed boobies and Galapagos crabs – and keep an eye out for marine iguanas, whales, dolphins and sharks as you explore this natural wonderland. You’ll experience (animal) life like never before on this beautiful trip to the Galapagos.
As well as exploring some of the archipelago's finest islands by boat, you'll get to know the locals by staying in small, friendly hotels
Snorkelling with sea lions is an incredible and surreal experience, and there are few better places to do so than Islas Lobos, home of the world's second largest sea lion colony
One of the joys of the Galapagos is to be surrounded by birds like boobies and frigatebirds who often have not even the slightest interest you're there
Incredible photo opportunities await around every corner – not least of Kicker Rock, the marvellous twin volcanic peaks seen sitting in the ocean from the top of Cerro Tijeratas
The colourful human history of Floreana, shrouded in mystery and mayhem, has a story for everyone. It's sure to be a hit with the family
With spare time in Quito and Isla Santa Cruz, you can spend quality time with the family – perhaps with further hiking or visiting local markets
This is a well-rounded family adventure, and there are many reasons to fall in love with the Galapagos Islands. That said, wildlife is the major focus of this trip, so it's especially suited to animal-lovers and birdwatchers.
There's a lot of boat travel between the various islands. If you're prone to motion sickness, it might be wise to consult your doctor about preventative medication before you go.

Very mixed. The trip itself was great. Guide was excellent. Pace was just right - adventurous but not exhausting. We saw incredible wildlife in beautiful places. But the pre-trip help from the office staff was terrible. I don't know if I'd recommend it as a result.

Make sure you get the local 100 SPF sunscreen. Our 50 SPF sunscreen wasn't good enough. The last thing you want, while on holiday in the Galapagos, is to be sunburnt!
