Value Galapagos: Budget cruising in the Enchanted Islands

12 days from £3265pp
 

Private Journey

 
Travel to Guayaquil, on the Pacific coast of Ecuador, and fly to the Galápagos Islands. Spend a day relaxing in this congenial town of Puerto Ayora before embarking on a cruise to see the greatest wildlife show on Earth. It was on a similar trip 200 years ago that Darwin returned to 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 a compact motor sailboat offering an intimate and informal atmosphere favoured by those who prefer the laid-back approach of smaller craft to the more formal, larger luxury vessels. It is also extremely good value. You will have ample opportunity to make new friends among people with shared interests. 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.
