Travel to Ecuador and spend a day exploring the charms of beautiful Quito.
Start this Galapagos tour off slowly with a relaxing cruise to Las Bachas. Spot green turtles, marine iguanas and the cute Sally Lightfoot crabs, which all call this part of Galapagos home.
Explore the black volcanic rocks, unique flora and red-sand beaches of Isla Rabida. Fur seals, flamingos, iguanas and countless bird species are in abundance here so get cameras ready!
Walk across the picturesque lava landscape of Isla Bartolome. Hike up to the once-active volcano, and witness Pinnacle Rock jutting out of the stunning aquamarine waters of Sullivan Bay.
Wander through the Charles Darwin Research Station and see the tortoise breeding programme. Perhaps catch a glimpse of Galapagos's giant tortoises and explore the unique plant life and lava tunnels of Santa Cruz island.
Pass through Leon Dormido, a 150 m rock that rises magnificently out of the ocean. Hike, swim or snorkel off pristine Cerro Brujo and be sure to keep an eye out for fur seals and the unique blue-footed boobies.
Watch the antics of the abundant bird life on Isla Espanola then head to Bahia Allen Gardiner and relax on the white sand beaches. It is also a perfect place for snorkelling - spy turtles, reef sharks and tropical fish going about their business in the delightful tropical waters.
Witness sea lions basking on green-tinged beaches and see flamingos wading regally through the lagoons of this stunning Galapagos island. Again be in snorkeller's heaven in the warm blue waters that contain a rainbow of fish.
