Galapagos
Galapagos

The Galapagos Triangle offers to travelers the unique opportunity to visit three islands in 5 days: Isabela in the west, the “lost paradise of the Galapagos”, Floreana, the southern most and greenest island in the archipelago and Santa Cruz, the central island and home of the famous Charles Darwin Research Station. Along the way we will be able to see and get remarkably close to the incredible animals in their natural habitat and discover why the Galapagos is considered a “living zoo”. Throughout the entirety of the program we will be accompanied by our certified naturalist guides, and stay comfortably at our choice selection of hotels.

Wildlife to See:

Galapagos Sea Lions, Galapagos Giant Tortoises, Marine Iguanas, Blue-Footed Boobies, Flamingos, Frigate Birds, Sharks, Penguins, Sting Rays, Sea-Turtles, Pelicans, Darwin´s Finches, Galapagos Fly-Catchers, Galapagos Mockingbirds, Galapagos Hawks, Lava Lizards, and many more unique species that can be found nowhere else in the world.

In the afternoon we will visit the Floreana Highlands, where we will see the caves that pirates used years ago, the Asylum of Peace (beautiful viewpoint) and the ancient habitat of Wittmer, one of the earliest inhabitants of the island. We will have the opportunity to watch how inhabitants extracted fresh water from this island and we can taste this vital liquid. Afterwards, we will return to Santa Cruz in our speedboat.
