About this tour

Amazing wildlife, both on land and underwater, is the drawcard of the remote Galapagos Islands. Tour this otherworldly archipelago by foot and boat with an expert naturalist guide to lead the way. Swim with sea turtles, see giant tortoises up close, watch sea lions lounge around town and discover volcanic environments. This trip has you cruising and exploring by day and relaxing on land by night, not at the mercy of the weather for a good night’s sleep.The only way to access many islands is by boat. The good news is that seasickness can often be managed with medication and by consulting a health professional before your trip.This trip includes a 17 km hike (approximately 6 to 7 hours) on rocky terrain. We recommend bringing comfortable walking shoes that offer good support.The sun in the Galapagos Islands is incredibly strong due to its proximity to the equator, so it is hot an easy to burn. Make sure you bring sun protection and wear layers to combat the heat.Snorkelling excursions are included throughout the itinerary. Confident swimming skills are required to take part in these activities.The Galapagos is a great place to switch off and take a break from your phone, as internet access can be patchy can Wi-Fi is not always be 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.There is an opportunity on the final day to forgo your flight back to Quito to stay on and go scuba diving. We can assist with booking this activity on the final day of the tour, but it will require an extra night on the islands, and you must have a scuba certification. See ‘Important Notes’ on the left for details.
