This itinerary has so much to offer; from the cobbled streets of colonial Quito through to the culturally rich Otavalo market town. These inspiring destinations could only be topped by a full week in the astounding Galapagos Islands! This itinerary is packed full of an unbelievable array of wildlife, dramatic lush scenery as well as an abundance of history and culture on the mainland.
Galapagos trips are very much expedition voyages rather than your typical ‘cruise’ itinerary. With activity rather than relaxation in mind, you will typically have at least two excursions per day with an occasional pause thrown in for the odd siesta! All meals are included throughout the cruise, these are typically a buffet style and are a sociable experience. Activities will vary – perhaps you’ll have a snorkelling trip to see colourful marine life in the morning, followed by a stroll through highlands to spot tortoises or a boat ride to see blue-footed boobies nesting in the rocks. You are accompanied throughout by your naturalist guide, with a maximum of 16 other passengers. Your guide is on hand to answer questions and will give details on the geology and wildlife of each destination.
