DAY 1: Saturday


Departure to the Galapagos Islands, arrival at Baltra airport, where our naturalist guide from the National Park will be waiting for you.


Whether you are departing from Baltra or Puerto Ayora, a bus will take you to one of the reserves along the way to visit the lush highland forests where you will look for giant Galapagos tortoises in their natural environment.

This is the best place in the Galapagos to see these gentle giants (reaching over 300 kg!) casually grazing and resting in freshwater ponds.

This is also home to a great diversity of birds rarely found in the lowlands, including finches (tree finches, woodpeckers and vegetarian finches), flycatchers and several species of waterfowl. You will visit a lava tunnel (depending on the itinerary) and learn how these extraordinary formations were created by ancient volcanic eruptions.

Highlights: Giant tortoises, Darwin’s finches, barn owls, white-cheeked ducks, Galapagos flycatchers, lava tunnels.

DAY 2: Sunday


Punta Cormorant is located north of Floreana and is known for its large coastal lagoon with American flamingos, white-cheeked redstarts, black-necked stilts and other shorebirds. There is a beautiful white sand beach that is an important nesting area for green sea turtles, where we can also see rays and reef sharks. In recent years, a small group of blue-footed boobies has started breeding just off the trail. It is also a good day to observe endemic plants.

Snorkeling: You will snorkel at Corona del Diablo, a small, highly eroded volcano just off Floreana Island. This is considered by many to be one of the best snorkeling sites in the entire archipelago as the current funnels plankton through the corona, attracting huge schools of snapper, parrotfish, creolefish, angelfish, reef sharks, sea turtles, rays and a phenomenal amount of marine life.

Highlights: American flamingo, blue-footed booby, frigate birds, tropical birds, Galapagos shearwaters, sea lions, sea turtle nesting site, finches, shorebirds, coral sand beach.


Floreana is famous for the stories of the German settlers and the baroness of the late 1920s and 1930s.

30. Murders, disappearances and other unsolved mysteries are the ingredients of this fascinating story.

Post Office Bay was often used by whalers to anchor their ships and go up to the highlands for fresh water and turtles. Most ships visiting the Galapagos had to reach this place sooner or later, so a mail system was established more than 200 years ago: a barrel near the beach became the way to leave messages to other ships and also to the outside world. This mail system is still in use and will allow you to send postcards from the Galapagos to the outside world. In addition to a lovely little beach and a lava tunnel, the area is ideal for dinghy tours in search of sea lions, green sea turtles, shorebirds, small sharks and, with a little luck, Galapagos penguins.

Snorkeling: There is great snorkeling from the beach, as you can see lots of sea turtles, rays, a great diversity of fish and, if you are very lucky, Galapagos penguins.

DAY 3: Monday


This rocky trail is one of the most amazing nature walks you can do in the Galapagos Islands.

From the moment you set foot on the island and all along the trail, the amount and diversity of wildlife is truly astounding. Sea lions and marine iguanas will be the first to welcome us, followed by large colonies of seabirds, such as Nazca and blue-footed boobies, gulls and tropical birds. At the end of the trail we will visit a colony of Galapagos albatrosses (April to January), the largest bird on the islands and one of the most interesting for its powerful flight and elaborate courtship. Galapagos albatrosses only nest on Española, so this is the only place where you can see them up close.

Highlights: Sea lions, Galapagos albatross, Galapagos hawks, Española mockingbirds, Darwin’s finches, marine iguanas, Nazca and blue-footed boobies, red-billed tropicbirds, swallow-tailed gulls, herons, lava lizards, egrets.


Gardner Beach is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and interesting beaches to visit in the Galapagos. Its fine coral sand and turquoise waters give it a totally tropical look, which contrasts with the presence of sea lions sunbathing on the beach. You will have the opportunity to walk along the beach and learn about the biology of the sea lions and other endemic species, such as the Española mockingbird, marine iguanas and Galapagos hawks.

Snorkeling: There are several great snorkeling spots in Gardner Bay. Fantastic place to swim with sea lions, sharks, rays and a variety of fish including angelfish, parrotfish and tangfish.

Highlights: Coral sand beach, sea lions, Galapagos hawks, Española mockingbirds, Darwin’s finches, marine iguanas.

DAY 4: Tuesday


Located on the outskirts of Puerto Baquerizo, this center is dedicated to the history of human presence in the Galapagos. From the time of the first Spanish explorers to the present day, through illustrious visitors such as Charles Darwin, this permanent exhibit will take you through the dangers and struggles of early settlers trying to survive the harsh environment of the Galapagos.

Highlights: Endemic Plants, Human History Exhibit

Rising vertically to over 460 feet high, Kicker Rock is an imposing volcanic formation a couple of miles off the coast of San Cristobal. Its vertical cliffs are breeding grounds for boobies and tropical birds, while the northern slopes are home to breeding colonies of frigate birds. Landing is not permitted, but a circumnavigation will provide spectacular views of the rock while searching for birds from the deck.


Lobos Island is a small islet separated from San Cristobal by a narrow channel, forming a sheltered bay where sea lion pups play in the tide pools. Despite its small size, the island is surprisingly teeming with wildlife, especially “sea lions“. Groups of sea lions will welcome you at the landing point, but as you go a few steps deeper, male frigate birds displaying their inflated red balloons will perch in the bushes and trees. A small colony of blue-footed boobies, often nesting just off the trail, will give you a chance to observe their famous courtship dance.

Snorkeling: This is an ideal place to snorkel, as the waters are usually calm and sea lions often play with divers to demonstrate their swimming skills. Sea turtles and rays are often seen resting on the sandy bottoms.

Highlights: Galapagos sea lions, marine iguanas, magnificent and large frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, San Cristobal lava lizards.

DAY 5: Wednesday


Bachas gets its name from the remains of two large barges (mispronounced by locals as “bachas”) left by the Americans during World War II.

left by the Americans during World War II. When the tide is low, the iron skeletons of the barges can still be seen.

buried in the white sand. From November to May, this site is also one of the most important sea turtle nesting areas of all the Galapagos Islands. There are also several small saltwater lagoons where flamingos, herons and other aquatic birds are often seen.

Highlights: American flamingos, white-cheeked storm petrels, sandpipers, lava gulls, blue-footed boobies.
