Day 1 Quito

The Galapagos Adventure begins in Quito, Ecuador's capital, where the rustic cobbled streets of the Old Town meet the vibrant and growing nightlife of a thriving modern city. Arrive early to wander through the narrow streets and discover Plaza Grande and Plaza San Francisco. Or perhaps venture to the nearby El Panecillo for panoramic views of the endless white houses of the city and the volcanoes which line the horizon.

Day 3 Isla Santa Fe

Stop by South Plaza to search for blue-footed and masked boobies before sailing on to Santa Fe Island. Keep an eye out for the Santa Fe land iguana, which is unique to the island. Walk through prickly pear forests and make the most of the radiant green waters that are a favourite for sea lions.

Day 4 Isla Espanola

Cruise to Espanola, one of the oldest islands in the archipelago. As well as being the breeding site for thousands of waved albatrosses, the island has an abundance of hood mockingbirds, marine iguanas, Galapagos hawks and boobies. And there is no wonder fauna find the location so appealing as it boasts one of the longest stretches of white sand beach in the region.
