Discover the enchanted Galapagos Islands during this 7-day, guided, island-hopping tour! Due to its isolation, the Galapagos forms a natural sanctuary, preserving species that have evolved separately over millennia. In addition to sheltering unique species, these islands are famous for having inspired Charles Darwin's Theory of Natural Selection.

We will meet you at the lobby of your hotel in Quito on the first day of the tour at 6:00 PM for a pre-tour briefing. Head for Isabela Island, the largest island of the Galapagos spread over an area slightly more than 4,500 square kilometres, on Day 2.

See the famous lava tunnels underwater while snorkeling and relax on the white, sandy beaches of Isabela Island on the third day of the trip and enjoy hiking and kayaking trips on Day 4, when you will also get the chance to see the unique wildlife of this island.

Visit the famous Charles Darwin Research Station as well as El Chato - Giant Tortoise Reserve in the highlands of Santa Cruz. Learn more about this endangered species of tortoise that calls these islands home. You will fly back to Quito on Day 6 of the trip. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
