About Ecuador

Complete Galapagos Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Quito

Travel to Ecuador and experience the buzz of lively Quito. Brimming with colonial history and architecture, navigate the winding streets and cobblestone alleyways and be rewarded by this enigmatic city. Why not relax with a cup of Ecuadorian best at a cafe on the Plaza Grande.

Day 2 Las Bachas / Isla Santa Cruz

Take a flight to the tiny island of Baltra. Cruise to the beautiful beach of Las Bachas on Isla Santa Cruz, the same beach that is a haven for sea turtles come egg-laying time.

Day 3 Las Plazas / Isla Santa Fe

Encounter a myriad of wildlife at Las Plazas, where marine and land iguanas, swallow-tailed gulls, frigate birds, brown pelicans and blue-footed boobies can be glimpsed. Sail to the relatively undisturbed Isla Santa Fe, where those who want a really close look at the wildlife can opt for a snorkel in the radiant green waters.

Day 4 Isla Espanola

The journey heads due south to Isla Espanola. Spot waved albatross, marine iguanas, hood mockingbirds, Galapagos hawks and boobies. Head to Gardener Bay to stroll a stretch of the idyllic white beach.

Day 5 Isla Floreana

Visit Isla Floreana and learn about the early inhabitants of the Galapagos archipelago. Take part in the tradition of leaving a letter or a postcard at Post Office Bay, where it will be collected by the traditional mariner mail the following day.

Day 6 Isla Santa Cruz / Charles Darwin Station

Travel to Isla Santa Cruz, the second largest of the Galapagos Islands. Discover the research and preservation practices that happen at the Charles Darwin Research Station before heading to the twin volcanic craters of Los Gemelos for some lava tunnel exploration.

Day 7 Isla Rabida / Isla Santiago

Visit Isla Rabida and learn about the Galapagos' geological gems. As sea lions soak up the sun on the red sand beach below, and flamingos frolic in the local lagoon, why not kick back and relax too? With hiking, swimming and snorkelling opportunities, there's every chance to mix with the locals.

Day 8 Bartolome / Sombrero Chino

Hike the Summit Trail to the top of Bartolome and admire the stunning vista of the Galapagos islands sprawled out beyond the horizon. Visit Pinnacle Rock, the definitive icon of Galapagos landscape images, and learn about its contribution to World War II target practice.

Days 9-10 North Seymour / Isla Baltra / Quito

Head to the ever-popular North Seymour Island, where a short hike leads to the lookout over Daphne Major and Minor. Admire one last view over the archipelago before boarding a return flight to Quito.
