Location: Quito and Multiple Galápagos Islands: San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, Isabela, Floreana, and Bartolomé.
Galápagos is a place every travel and nature lover should visit at least once in his/her lifetime. It is a place like no other in the world, boasting a unique fauna and flora where about 80% of the birds, 97% of the reptiles and mammals, 20% of marine life, and more than 30% of the plants can't be found anywhere else on the planet! Some of the unique wildlife you will likely see will be the Giant Galápagos Tortoise (that live up to 200 years!), Galápagos Land Iguana (AKA Galápagos Dragon), Galápagos Marine Iguana (and maybe get to see them swimming while we snorkel), Blue-footed Booby, Red-footed Booby, Frigate Bird, Galápagos Penguin, Galápagos Sea Lions, and an amazing variety of fish when you snorkel, including many sharks (possibly even hammerhead sharks).
Galápagos also features one of the most beautifully unique volcanic landscapes in the world.
This 13-day itinerary starts in Quito, the beautiful and unique capital of Ecuador, and will take you through all four inhabited islands of Galapagos, plus two uninhabited islands. Unlike cruises, this land itinerary will have you spend every night on land, and have a chance to really experience the four main islands of Galapagos.
