Galapagos Islands Express
Ecuador packs a lot of variety into a small country. The undisputed highlight is the Galapagos Archipelago, with their otherworldly volcanic landscapes and stunning array of wildlife. Snorkel with sea lions and penguins, come close to boobies and albatrosses, iguanas and tortoises and watch whales. This is nature in its primordial state, nature as it used to be.
This seven-day cruise package will give you 4 nights in the Galapagos Islands, giving you a good introduction to the wildlife and natural history. It is also a good cruise for those who wish to combine the Galapagos with Ecuador's Amazon jungle, or a trip to Machu Picchu in Peru.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:
While snorkelling in the Galapagos it is not uncommon to come eye to eye (or should we say nose to nose) with sea lions and turtles. They are as curious about you as you are about them! Santa Fe and Isabela offer some of the best opportunities to swim with sea lions.
