The Galapagos are one of the world's wildlife havens, but with 21 islands to choose from, it can be difficult deciding what to include on your safari. This trip is centred around the two largest islands in the archipelago – Isabela and Santa Cruz – while focusing on the activities and wildlife-viewing opportunities available on land. The region's marine creatures won't be left out though, as you'll be able to take to the water alongside turtles, penguins, iguanas and sea lions, to name but a few species. Also included are two nights in Ecuador’s capital, Quito, where you can experience a fascinating admixture of Indigenous and colonial cultures before heading to the Galapagos for a week-long exploration of its natural treasures.
