Luxury Galapagos Islands Cruise

11 days from £5918pp

Private Journey

Celebrate a special occasion with a week’s luxury cruise around Ecuador’s Galápagos Islands, sailing on board the elegant Grace.

Travel to Quito, the highland capital of Ecuador, and after a couple of days exploring the city and its picturesque environs fly on to embark on an 8 day cruise around the Galápagos Islands, to see the greatest wildlife show on Earth. It was on a similar trip 200 years ago that Darwin returned from the archipelago to write the seminal book ‘The Origin of the Species’. Step into his shoes and explore the diversity of land and marine life which inhabit these enchanting islands.

You’ll sail on an elegant luxury yacht which could not be more romantic – Princess Grace and Prince Rainier of Monaco spent their honeymoon on board this very same sleek and glossy vessel. There’s abundant deck space and the yacht exudes sumptuous comfort and charm. In addition to landings on the islands you will have the opportunity to snorkel or swim with sea-lions. Travel by night and awaken next day with a new island to discover.
