Itinerary

Travel to Ecuador and visit the striking city of Quito. Discover true Ecuadorian flair on a stroll through the vibrant colonial streets. Why not hike to El Panecillo - 'the Little Bread Loaf' - for a sensational view of the city.
The Galapagos adventure begins with a flight to Baltra before setting sail for Isla Santa Cruz. Come face-to-face with the giant Galapagos tortoise, explore amazing lava tunnels and visit the Charles Darwin Research Station.
Continue the cruise to Isla Rabida. With a different species at every turn, this island is a nature lover's paradise. Head to Isla Santiago and explore the surrounds of stunning Puerto Egas.
Scale the summit of Bartolome and devour the magnificent view of the Galapagos Islands from the top. Passing over the volcanic luna landscapes, get a snap of the famous Pinnacle Rock.
Visit North Seymour Island and follow the trail to the beautiful beaches that look out to Daphne Major and Minor. Cruise back to Baltra before catching a return flight to Quito.
Head back to the bubbly city of Quito and perhaps end this Galapagos adventure with an anise flavoured mistela, a drink unique to the city.
