Day 1 Quito
Travel to Quito and discover this vibrant city resting beneath Volcan Pichincha. Explore the picturesque streets and cobblestone alleys on a walking tour. The many churches, cathedrals and colonial mansions reflect the history of the region and are well worth exploring further.
Days 2-4 Isabela Island
Formed by six merging volcanoes, five of which are still active, the silhouette of Isabela roughly resembles that of a seahorse. The unique ecosystem on Isabela means it has distinctly different flora and fauna to all of the other Galapagos Islands. Experience some of the natural wonders of Isabela by taking a trip to the Flamingo Lagoon, the largest coastal lagoon in the Galapagos and one of the main reproductive sites for flamingos.

Day 5 Santa Cruz
Visit the interesting and informative Charles Darwin Research Station to meet the breeds of tortoises and land iguanas brought back from the brink of extinction. Later on why not head to the white sands of Tortuga Bay to see the quirky marine iguanas playing in the breakers.

Days 6-7 Quito
It’s time to farewell the majesty of the Galapagos Islands and return to the mainland on a flight back to Quito. Enjoy free time to revel in the nightlife of this enchanting city, and perhaps sample traditional fare at a local eatery or street stall for a final taste of Ecuadorian cuisine. There should also be time to hit the markets to pick up colourful souvenirs.
