It’s hard to imagine a travel destination more unique and dreamy than the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos is a land defined by its rugged volcanic landscapes and wealth of wildlife, much of which only exists on this unforgettable archipelago. On this trip we’ll experience the natural wonders of the Galapagos in the most intimate and up-close way possible – via boat. We’ll travel aboard a first-class motor yacht to red coral beaches, secluded coves, sunken caves, and green mangroves. We’ve chosen a route based on some of the most incredible wild-life viewing opportunities on the planet including land and marine iguanas, Galapagos giant tortoises, sea lions, flamingos, fur seals, penguins, Darwin finches, blue-footed boobies, and the Galapagos hawk. Step aboard for a luxurious and epic adventure.

This trip is appropriate for women in good physical condition who want to spend 4 to 6 hours every day actively exploring the Galapagos, including hiking, swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. There are several hikes that are relatively short (maximum 3 hours), but are sometimes steep and rocky. None of the days are strenuous; however, they are full and some will involve early mornings. Each day we will climb in and out of Zodiacs, sometimes onto sandy beaches, but sometimes onto rocky and wet shoreline, requiring balance. There are numerous opportunities to snorkel on this trip and being comfortable in the water is important if you want to snorkel. The majority of the trip is on a yacht, and may not be a good choice if you are very prone to seasickness.Rating:2 3 4 5.
This is truly a multisport exploration of the Galapagos Islands. Wildlife watching is the primary activity and in addition we'll snorkel, swim, kayak, walk, and hike. Each night we'll motor to our next destination via yacht. Our Galapagos guides will make sure you leave with an understanding of the complex ecosystem and interesting history.
We'll spend our first two nights at La Casona de la Ronda Hotel in Quito, a charming boutique hotel with a central courtyard just off the main plaza in Quito.
The remainder of the trip we will live aboard our private luxury motor yacht, Beluga. Beluga is fully air-conditioned, spacious, and comfortable. It has 6 shared double cabins and 1 single supplement cabin, each with its own private bath with hot showers. There is a dining cabin with panoramic windows, and a sundeck to enjoy the view.
