Itinerary

Day 1The Adventure begins - Arrival at Baltra airport

Welcome to the Galapagos Islands! Lots of activities await you in these five days, so try to land in Baltra early in the morning to fully enjoy the day. In any case, there are two itineraries ready for you, depending on the time of arrival.
If you’ll arrive before 11 am, your guide will take you to Puerto Ayora, where after lunch you’ll get to Isabella Island by speedboat. Watch out, during the trip you might get wet, so dress accordingly. Once there, visit the Flamingo Lagoon and spend the night.
In case your arrival to Baltra was not in the morning, the first day of your adventure will start with the island of Santa Cruz.
Depending on your arrival time, you will take either a bike tour or a guided tour. Night at the Fernandina Hotel or similar.

Day 2Conquer the Sierra Negra Volcano

The second day is dedicated to the discovery of the active Sierra Negra volcano, which you will reach by trekking. The volcano has the second largest crater in the world, and to reach it you have to take a bus to the Galapagos National Park first. Enjoy a packed lunch at the foot of the volcano, and then spend the afternoon on the beach, with the possibility of snorkeling or swimming. Dinner and overnight stay at Hotel San Vicente or similar. (In this day breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).

Day 3Flamingos, penguins, sea lions, marine iguanas and sharks

After breakfast, bike up to the center specialized in the conservation of giant turtles, and towards the center of the island, where you will discover a bit of history and culture of the land that hosts you. Return to the hotel for lunch, and then discover lagoons full of flamingos, penguin colonies and sea lions, marine iguanas and sharks, with which you can also snorkel. At the end of the day, return to the hotel for dinner.

Day 4Discover the Galapagos marine life by kayak and bike

Today is dedicated to Puerto Vallami, from where you will start kayaking along the coast and see the marine fauna from a privileged position. Get back to the hotel for lunch, before riding again and discovering caves and spots out of the ordinary for their beauty and uniqueness.

Day 5End of adventure - Return to Quito or Guayaquil

On the fifth day return to the island of Baltra, taking the speedboat at 6 in the morning. Here there are activities you can do and ancient volcanoes you can visit, before returning to the airport, depending on your departure time.
