Galapagos is one of the most incredible places in the world, a natural reserve that will amaze you with more than two thousand species that live together, like black iguanas with the shapes of dragons, giant tortoises and sea lions. On this five-day tour we will see the unique fauna and vegetation of these islands as well as various protected places.

Tour itinerary

The guide will pick us up to go to Santa Cruz to admire an incredible landscape and giant tortoises. We will eat at the ranch Manzanillo and continue our route to Puerto Ayora. During this journey, we will make a stop at the Charles Darwin Research Station, getting to know the formation of the islands and observe the breeding center for giant tortoises. In addition, we will see the reproduction center of land iguanas and different generations of turtles. Afterwards, we will have time to rest at the hotel.

We will arrive to Isabela from the Puerto de Ayora in a speedboat that will last about two and a half hours. Upon arrival, we will go to our hotel to leave any extra luggage we will eat lunch. In the afternoon, we will go to the Arnaldo Tupiza breeding center, where we will observe giant tortoises from the south of Isabela and learn about the project that is carried out for the conservation of the species. We will also have the opportunity to visit the Laguna de Flamingos.

In the afternoon we will go to Tintoreras, where a guide will pick us up to board a speedboat. We will see one of the most fascinating species in Galapagos, the white-tipped sharks, as well as other species such as sea lions, iguanas, blue-footed seabirds, crabs, sea turtles, pelicans and penguins.
