HIGHLIGHTS
  • Arrive early and discover Quito’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage, filled with colonial era buildings, boulevards of multicoloured mansions and gracefully ageing cathedrals
  • Learn about the unique habit of the marine iguana. This dinosaurlike little creature has an iridescent sheen and is only found on the Galapagos Islands
  • Many come to Isla Santa Cruz just for the giant tortoises. Get up close and personal with these enormous animals, as they drag themselves through the sand
  • Birdwatching at the Galapagos is quite an experience. Watch the aerobatic routines of bluefooted boobies and the death defying stunts of the frigate birds, as they whizz through the air
Start and end in Quito, the Galapagos Venture trip is a guided explorer tour that takes 9 days. You will travel through Isla Santa Cruz, Quito and San Cristobal Island in Ecuador. Galapagos Venture is a small group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Take a thrilling sojourn around the highlights of the unique flora- and fauna-rich islands of the Galapagos. From rubbing shoulders with prehistoric-looking giant tortoises and marine iguanas, to gazing up in wonder at the spectacular blue-footed boobies’ synchronised fishing technique, the Galapagos offers the chance to see an abundance of rare creatures at close range. There are also heaps of opportunities to explore the underwater world of the Galapagos by snorkelling and diving in the surrounding waters - usually in the good company of playful sea lions and sea turtles.
