icon Day 1 : Quito

Location:

  Quito


Meals Included:

  No Meals


Upon arrival at Quito airport you will be met by an English speaking guide and transferred to your hotel in the city. Spend the rest of the day at leisure, independently exploring.

icon Day 2 : Galapagos Islands

Location:

  Galápagos Islands


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Quito - Galapagos. This morning, you'll be collected from your hotel and transferred to the airport for the short flight to Baltra Airport in the Galapagos, where our guide will be waiting for you. Transfer to the M/C Anahi catamaran, your home for the next 8 days. Settle into your cabin and enjoy lunch onboard before touring of the world famous Galapagos Islands begins.



Our first port of call is the Bachas Beaches which are a favourite nesting site for sea turtles. These two small beaches are found to the West of Turtle Cove on Santa Cruz Island. Behind one of the beaches there is a small brackish water lagoon, where occasionally it is possible to observe flamingos and other coastal birds, such as black-necked stilts and whimbrels. This area is a great introduction to the Galapagos landscape, fauna and flora.

icon Day 3 : Genovesa Island

Location:

  Genovesa Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning we visit Darwin Bay on Genovesa Island which has a shield volcano with a 600m wide crater. Following a trail which is part coral sand and part slabs of lava, we'll spot nesting colonies of the common frigate, the Nasca booby and the swallow-tailed gulls. We'll also see nests of red-footed booby, which is the largest nesting colony of pelagic birds in the Galapagos. The Great Frigate bird is also abundant here and one of the main attractions of the island.



This afternoon's port of call is El Barranco, in the southern part of Darwin Bay on Genovesa Island. The 1.5km trail is on volcanic rock and the cliffs located in the south are composed of very fragile lava. The natural erosion that has occurred in these lava flows has become the ideal place for nesting Storm Petrels. You can see two species of petrels that nest in cavities and holes in the lava. During the panga (dingy) rides along the cliffs fur seals can also be seen.

icon Day 4 : South Plazas & Santa Fe

Location:

  South Plaza Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning's excursion takes us to South Plaza Island which is home to around 1000 sea lions and several hybrid iguanas, a result of crossing a male marine iguana and a female land iguana. These iguanas are unique, recognizable at first glance by their black or gray colour, with a land iguana's crest, but face and tail of the marine iguana.



We'll meet more unique species of iguanas when we explore Santa Fe Island this afternoon. The Galapagos is also home to six endemic species of rats, one of which can be found on Santa Fe and another attraction is the presence of giant tunas.

icon Day 5 : San Cristobal Island

Location:

  San Cristóbal Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


This morning we explore Punta Pitt at the east end of San Cristobal Island. The trail that we follow takes us to past an olivine beach before ascending to the top of a volcanic tuff hill passing several wonderful viewpoints en route. This is the only site in the Galapagos Islands, where you can see the three species of boobies and two species of frigates nesting in the same area. Another added attraction is the presence of sea lion.



After lunch we stop to see the Leon Dormido Rocks, which are the remains of a lava cone eroded by the sea. The two vertical rocks rising 500 feet from the ocean form a small channel that is navigable by small boats. This natural monument has become a favourite sight for cruises due to the many tropic birds, frigates and boobies that fill the surrounding air. Beneath the sea the nearly crystal-clear waters offer a brilliant show of colourful tropical fish and invertebrates. We continue on to explore Lobos Island which is home to a small population of blue-footed boobies, as well as two species of sea lions. In the pangas brown pelicans and several species of shorebirds can also be observed and if you opt to snorkel it's common to see juvenile sea lions, manta rays and sea turtles.

icon Day 6 : Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Centre

Location:

  Santiago Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Today's highlight is a visit to the Galapagos Tortoise Breeding Centre, in the southeast of San Cristobal Island. The natural population of tortoises from San Cristobal is seriously threatened by introduced animals (mainly wild goats, rats and cats), which to date has been impossible to eradicate despite continuing efforts. The San Cristobal tortoises are one of the 11 populations of Galapagos tortoises. At the visitors centre, we learn all about the natural history of the giant tortoises of this island.



After lunch we visit San Cristobal's Interpretation Centre which takes us through the history of the island in the context of nature, humankind and conservation. We finish today's touring with a scenic walk up Tijeretas Hill with its spectacular views of the island and an inlet where we can go snorkelling. It is also one of the only places where you can watch the two species of frigate birds nesting in the same colony.

icon Day 7 : Espanola Island

Location:

  Española Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Espanola is one of the most beautiful Galapagos Islands and is also one of the oldest, dating back an estimated 3.3 million years. Espanola has a high percentage of endemism because it is isolated from other islands. Endemic species include the Waved albatross, Darwin's finches and the mockingbird of Espanola, which is the largest species in the islands and has developed carnivorous behaviour. We explore Punta Suarez on the west of the island in the morning and Gardener Bay on the north coast in the afternoon. The main attraction here is the huge colony of sea lions, which inhabit the beach during the breeding season.

icon Day 8 : Floreana Island

Location:

  Floreana Island


Meals Included:

  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Floreana Island is our port of call today. We enjoy a morning excursion to Punta Cormorant on the north Coast of Floreana Island, which has a beautiful lagoon that is home to a large population of flamingos and a fine sand beach which is a nesting area for sea turtles. Later this morning we cruise out in the panga to the "Devil's Crown" which is a great place to snorkel. Here we can find a variety of underwater characters: sea turtles, Galapagos Sharks, Moray Eels, and sea lions. Outside of the crown is a good place to see Hammerhead Sharks.



This afternoon we visit historic Post Office Bay. When whalers came for supplies of Galapagos tortoises in the 18th Century, it is said that the captains kept a barrel for those who passed through the bay to leave mail in and deliver any that they could. Today, this tradition is alive with tourists visiting the Galapagos, It's possible to send a letter or postcard from Post Office Bay a without stamp, all you have to do in return is pick up a letter that is directed to where you live.

icon Day 9 : Santa Cruz

Location:

  Santa Cruz


Meals Included:

  Breakfast


We finish our Galapagos adventure in Santa Cruz this morning with a morning tour of Charles Darwin Station, which takes in the famous tortoise breeding centre. The Galapagos breeding program is conducted by the park staff with the collaboration of scientists from the Darwin Station. The eggs are brought from the Galapagos Islands of Pinzon, Santiago and Santa Cruz to the station where they are incubated artificially; the galapaguitos are born and reared until the age of 5 years, when they can survive the effects of introduced predators (rats, pigs and dogs), then they are returned to their native areas. There is also a breeding program for iguanas.



After this visit, you'll be transferred to the airport on Baltra Island for your flight back to Quito. Upon arrival you'll be met and transferred to your hotel in Quito for your final night.

What do you love most about Alicante?

"Alicante is the perfect size; the city centre with bars, restaurants and shops is only a few minutes walk from the amazing beach and waterfront where you can sunbathe, swim and relax!"

Any must-dos for first-time visitors to Alicante?

"Be sure to climb the historic Santa Barbara Castle above the town centre for panoramic views. Take some drinks and enjoy the sunset for a true Alicante experience!"

Favourite time of year to visit Alicante

"Spring or Autumn are both great times to visit, the weather is warm and sunny. There are also fewer tourists about so you can better enjoy the beaches and bars."

What else can I see in the area?

"The whole coastline north and south of Alicante is stunning, with sandy beaches and amazing rock formations, or you can take a day trip on the ferry to the heavenly island of Tabarca!"

Favourite way to spend a day in Alicante?

"Head to the beach and play some volleyball at the free public nets, jump in the sea to cool off between games and then stroll to a local bar for tapas and a jug of tinto de verano in the evening."

Tenerife

Spain

What do you love most about Tenerife?

"I love how the island managed to preserve their own culture with influences of the Spanish mainland culture as well as African. There are a lot of festivals and celebrations throughout the year. "

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"I recommend exploring remote beaches that are only reachable by a short hike like Playa Benijo"

@iamjenn.y 's Top Tips

"My recommendation: Don't stop at the beach in the beginning of Playa Amarilla, rather walk about 10 minutes further to find a more private area where you can enter the water or climb the rocks."

Must pack items for Tenerife

"When exploring the Teide National Park, always bring a jacket as it's super windy up there and can get quite cold around sunset time – don't miss out on the sunset though :)"
