A fantastic premium multi-activity holiday in the Galapagos. A full week of sea kayaking, trekking, mountain biking, and snorkeling in the incomparable beauty of the islands awaits, and you can easily combine this with mainland Ecuador to provide a holiday of great contrast. Focusing on the Central and Southern islands of San Cristobal, Santa Cruz and Isabela, you will be able to discover these enchanted islands in a way you never thought possible.
The program comes alive in a unique way as you sea kayak and snorkel in the marine reserve, or hike and even mountain bike on the highlands. Diving in the world-class marine reserve is optional, but highly recommended. The main highlights will be hiking to the Sierra Negra Volcano on Isabela; paddling sea-kayaks in gin-clear waters past penguins or sea lion pups; mountain biking to the top of Santa Cruz in search of giant tortoises; and snorkelling or scuba-diving through huge shoals of tropical fish.
Based in high quality hotels with daily activities suitable for all levels, this weeklong program combines the best of the Galapagos – nature, wildlife, history and landscapes along with adventure and sports.
You visit areas that other cruise-based groups cannot reach, and in so doing are able to share experiences with the local people and learn more about the challenges they face living on these islands and support local people through this sustainable program. There are also plenty of options for extending your trip in Ecuador afterwards, or including this programme within a longer South American adventure.
