Thursday - Santa Cruz Island

Santa Cruz is the second largest island of the archipelago, colonized in the 1920's. In the morning enjoy a hike in the lush scenery of the Santa Cruz highlands, where occasionally it is possible to see giant tortoises grazing in the pastures of local farms. Lunch at a typical restaurant. In the afternoon, pay a visit to the Charles Darwin Research Station where we can see giant tortoises in captivity and learn about the importance of this station for the survival of the archipelago.

Friday - Española Island

Española is the southernmost island of the archipelago, and being so isolated, a high percentage of its fauna is endemic. Punta Suarez, on the western coast of the island, is one of the most popular and attractive places in Galapagos. Sea lions, the picturesque Christmas iguana, and blue footed and masked boobies can be found there. This is also the only place in the world where the waved albatross nests. Along the cliffs there is spectacular view of a fantastic blowhole. We will also visit Gardner Bay, a beautiful white sand beach that we will share with sea lions and mocking birds. (B,L,D)

Saturday - Floreana Island

Arriving at Cormorant Point in Floreana, land on a greenish colored sand beach. We will hike along a well marked trail beginning in the Black Mangrove beds and heading toward the back of the lagoon. The large, brackish lagoon holds one of the biggest populations of flamingos in the Galapagos. Novice snorkelers can practice back on the main beach where the sea lions are playful, while experienced snorkelers can roam the waters around the fish infested Devil's Crown. In the afternoon, visit Post Office Bay, a very original post office with an old barrel dating back to the 19th century. (B,L,D)

Sunday - Isabela Island

Isabela is very big and with its surface it almost covers half of the land of the Galapagos archipelago. Situated at this island is Punta Morena, a young volcanic landscape with numerous fresh-water pools at which Flamingos, Bahama Ducks and other birds unite. About 40 kms of Punta Morena you will find the mangrove of Elisabeth Bay with little islands off-shore. Here you can see li
