Day 1 Quito

Spend the day exploring the streets and people watching in the vibrant, historical town of Quito. In the evening, perhaps get acquainted with the rest of your group over a traditional meal.

Day 2 Isla Santa Cruz

Set sail on your home for the next week – the luxurious Queen Beatriz. Go snorkelling in the beautiful coves of Punta Carrion.

Day 3 Isla Isabela

Set out for Las Tintoreras, a small peninsula at Isabela Island’s port. On arrival, meander along the walkway to see white-tipped reef sharks, sea lions, blue-footed boobies, penguins, marine iguanas and turtles. Also witness lava flow and perhaps don a snorkel to see all this beauty from underwater.

Day 4 Isla Floreana

Get down to some ornithology on the olive-green sands of this bird-watching hotspot. It's also a great place to see lots of sea lions.

Day 5 Isla Santa Cruz

Encounter iguanas parading past gift shops on Santa Cruz, and stop in at the Charles Darwin Research Station to learn more about the wildlife of the Galapagos. Spend the afternoon in the stunning highlands of Santa Cruz.

Day 6 Plaza Sur & Santa Fe

Swim with sea lions or snorkel with shoals of fluorescent aquatic life.

Day 7 Isla Espanola

Head to the southernmost island of the Galapagos – a breeding ground for many of the islands’ bird species. Relax on the deserted white sands of Bahia Gardner – except for the sea lions and hood mocking birds that is!

Day 8 Isla San Cristobal

Cruise past the impressive Leon Dormido, a huge rock that juts steeply out of the ocean.

Day 9 San Cristobal Interpretation Center

Visit the interpretation centre, where the history and geography of the archipelago comes to life, before flying back to Quito.

Day 10 Quito

Enjoy a final breakfast in Quito before saying 'adios' to this awesome Galapagos adventure.
