Day 1 Quito

Discover this vibrant city on a guided walking tour through picturesque streets and cobblestone alleys. The many churches, cathedrals and colonial-style mansions reflect the history of the region, while Volcan Pichincha, always in the background, offers an incredible backdrop.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1

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 this region by taking a trip to the Flamingo Lagoon, the largest coastal lagoon in the Galapagos and one of the main reproductive sites for flamingos.
ACCOM: Hotel - 3

Days 5-6 Santa Cruz

Visit the fascinating Charles Darwin Research Station and meet the breeds of tortoise and iguana rescued from the brink of extinction. Later on, why not head to the white sands of Tortuga Bay to watch quirky marine iguanas playing in the breakers.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 7-8 Quito

It’s time to farewell the magical islands of the Galapagos on a return flight to the mainland. Enjoy free time by hitting the markets for a spot of souvenir shopping, or sample some traditional fare at a local eatery or street stall for a final taste of Ecuadorian cuisine.
