7 Days / 6 Nights
Our seven-day Peru and Galapagos travel package begins in Guayaquil, the closest major city to the archipelago. Once our group is assembled, it’s just a short hop to these amazing islands, where we’ll see all the wonderful wildlife and varied landscapes of the Galapagos. Everything will be arranged for you, meaning you can relax and focus on exploring the islands, alongside the marine turtles, penguins, sea lions and more that call the Galapagos home.
Our first day is all about getting the group together and providing the necessary information for our wonderful adventure to come. If you arrive reasonably early in Guayaquil, you can spend the day exploring the surrounding area. There’s plenty to see and do in and around Guayaquil, and our representative can help you organize a day trip – just ask us in advance.
In the evening, at around 6 p.m., one of our trip leaders will meet you at the hotel lobby for a ...
Today we get ready to explore the most amazing archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, located 600 miles (965.6 km) off the coast of Ecuador. This was the place that inspired Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection – and it’s sure to inspire you too.
First we’ll transfer you to the airport in Guayaquil, from where you’ll fly to Baltra Island in the Galapagos. On arrival we’ll pick you up and head straight from ...
After breakfast, you’ll head of with your guide for a half-day tour of Academy Bay, the natural harbor of Santa Cruz Island. Make sure you pack everything you need for the trip. If you need snorkeling equipment, it will be provided free of charge to anyone who wishes to use it.
We’ll take a boat out to Academy Bay, where you can swim and snorkel with all kinds of exotic fish and marine life, including the famous sea lions who love to hang out and play i...
After breakfast we’ll first head to the Charles Darwin Research Station, a short walk from the town of Puerto Ayora. Here you can learn more about conservation in the Galapagos, visit the natural history interpretation center and see the tortoise breeding program.

Today we’ll have a hearty breakfast and then head to the dock where we’ll take a speed boat to the nearby Isla Lobos, which sits just off the southwest coast of San Cristobal. We’ll keep our eyes peeled during the boat trip, as there are plenty of marine animals to spot on the way. When we set foot on Isla Lobos, you’ll have a guided tour of the island, where we can spot the frigate birds, blue-footed boobies, sea lions and manta rays that inhabit the island an...
Sadly, today is our last day on the Galapagos Islands. After breakfast and a few final photos of the nearby sea lions, we’ll transfer to Baltra Airport in time to catch the flight back to the mainland and Guayaquil.
Our final day is spent in Guayaquil, as you wait for your flight out, either back home or to continue your adventure in Ecuador. We’ll take you to the airport to catch your flight, and help with any other travel plans you might have. And then it’s time for this part of your journey to end, but you’ll be taking all the amazing memories of the Galapagos with you.
