Climb aboard for a 17-day adventure cruise of the unforgettable Galapagos Islands. Sail from Santa Cruz to the islands of Isabella, Floreana, Espanola, North Seymour and more, taking in diverse landscapes that range from lava flows to sands of green, red and white. Spend days exploring the archipelago that a young Charles Darwin called ‘a little world within itself’, and evenings sipping cocktails on the deck while watching the sunset. This unique part of the world is full of beautiful surprises, and this tour gives you the time to see them all.
