About this tour

Amazing wildlife, both on land and underwater, is the main drawcard of the remote Galapagos Islands. On this nine-day trip through the best of the Galapagos, you’ll uncover the outstanding natural beauty of these islands both on foot and by boat, looking for giant tortoises, sharks, blue-footed boobies, pelicans, seals, iguanas, dolphins, whales and birdlife along the way. Trace Darwin's theory of evolution, go snorkelling across multiple islands, hike up a volcano for the best views and soak up the experience with a group of likeminded travellers and a local leader who knows all the best spots. This trip involves a lot of travel by speed boat between the various Galapagos Islands, the rides can be quite bumpy at times. The good news is that seasickness can often be managed with medication. Consult a health professional before your trip.This trip includes a 17 km hike (approximately 6 to 7 hours) on rocky terrain. It's recommended you bring comfortable walking shoes that offer good support.The sun in the Galapagos Islands is incredibly strong due to its close proximity to the equator, so ensure you’re well prepared with sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses and a rash guard if desired.This trip does include snorkelling on multiple days throughout the itinerary. Confident swimming skills are required to take part.This trip visits Quito, which sits at a high altitude and as a result, some people can suffer from altitude sickness, regardless of age or physical health. Please see the ‘Medical and Health Information’ section of the Essential Trip Information.The Galapagos is a great place to switch off and take a break from your phone, as internet access can be patchy, and wi-fi is not always available or reliable.Hot water can be sporadic in some parts of the Galapagos, so there may be a few cold showers on the trip.
