adventure Details


Our adventure starts and finishes in the oldest of all South American capitals, Quito, Ecuador. We will explore the city of Quito before flying to the island of Santa Cruz and beginning our adventure in the Galapagos Islands.

The Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. It's considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else. While in the Galapagos Islands we will be exploring at least 5 islands, Santa Cruz, Bartholomew, Isabela Island, Las Tintoreras Islet, Isabela Bay, San Cristobal Island, Kicker Rock and Isla Lobos.

Our first island stay is Santa Cruz then Isabela Island and then San Cristobal Island. As we move from each main island we will taking day trips via small ferry boats, visiting the smaller islands.


Our adventure is all about experiencing the unique islands of the Galapagos. We have created a 13 day adventure touring the city of Quito, Ecuador to island hoping the Galapagos. Though relaxing on the beach sounds nice... we are going to be exploring! Seeing the magnificent and vast wildlife on land and in the ocean! From the top of a Volcano to under the water, our adventure includes hiking, biking, kayaking, SUPing, snorkeling, yoga, learning about the wildlife, culture and history! (Licensed scuba diving is also an additional option in some very special locations.)
