The enchanted isles of the Galapagos Archipelago are traditionally explored by expedition cruise boat.  This trip changes things up a bit as it follows in the footsteps of Darwin as we hike the rim of Sierra Negra Volcano on Isabela Island.  Among amazing landscapes of smouldering fumaroles and lava streams you will discover some of the last habitat of the Galapagos giant tortoise.
In addition we visit San Cristobal with its Galapagos Islands Interpretation Centre, the highlands of Floreana as well as Santa Cruz and several smaller islands.  You will have the opportunity for shorter walks and to admire the underwater world of the Galapagos while snorkelling the pristine seas.

Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

There is never a bad time to travel to the Galapagos Islands;  It all depends on what animals you would like to see and what you would like to do.  December through May is the rainy season which is a great time to see land animals and for swimming and snorkelling.  It is the ideal time for this trip.
