Enjoy a 5-day tour in the Galapagos Islands and visit 4 islands to see the best highlights of this archipelago. This is an all-inclusive tour with a knowledgeable guide and conducted in a small-group. You will be able to spot marine iguanas, sea lions, frigate birds, penguins, tortoises and turtles, blue footed and nazca boobies, pelicans and more. If you don\'t want to sleep on boat, but still want to get the most of the islands, this tour is perfect for you.

Day 1: San Cristobal (L) (D)
Meet at San Cristobal Island and transfer to the hotel. Visit Loberia Beach: a beautiful beach with great snorkeling. During the snorkel portion, you may find sea turtles, rays, sea lions. There is also a nice hike to a cliff where you can see many marine iguanas and birds.


Day 2: Floreana (B) (L) (D)
Departure for Floreana Island. The ride lasts for 2.5 hours. You will snorkel and then visit the highlands, a place called ?Peace Asylum? where the first colonists of the islands settled. You will also spot Galapagos giant tortoises on the way. Afterwards, you will continue to Isabela Island. Upon arrival, you will reach the flamingo lagoon to spot these beautiful animals.

Day 3: Isabela (B) (L) (D)
On your third day, you must choose upon booking between a Volcano trekking tour (land tour) or Cabo Rosa (water tour with a supplement). Spaces to Cabo Rosa are very limited and that?s why it has to be booked in advance.

Option 1 - Volcano Hike: Early in the morning, you will reach the highlands by bus. You will begin a trekking (6 hours) to the Sierra Negra and Chico volcano. Sierra Negra has the second largest active crater in the world: 10km round. You will continue to Chico Volcano, which is a cone of Sierra Negra. You will walk through moon-like scenery and have great views of nearby Fernandina Island and the north of the island. This gives you an idea of how the islands looked at their creation. Lunch will be served in a local farm. You will end the day with a nice swim and snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.

Option 2 - Cabo Rosa Tunnel (This option has an additional cost, $140 per person)
If you are okay with another boat ride (1 hour each way) you can take the excursion to Cabo Rosa tunnels. This is an amazing place where the volcano activity created lava tunnels going under and over the sea level. You can spot penguins, blue footed boobies, and you will have great snorkeling too. Back to port around 2pm, you will enjoy a late lunch and then meet the other group around 3:30pm to swim/snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.

Day 4: Isabela - Santa Cruz (B) (L) (D)
In the morning, you will visit the Tintoreras Islet, where you can spot penguins. Then, you will depart to Santa Cruz by boat and, upon arrival, hike to the Tortuga Bay to enjoy a last swim into the Galapagos waters and spot a huge iguana colony.


Day 5: Baltra (B)
In the morning, you will reach the airport passing by a lava tunnel that you will visit going entirely through it. Then, you\'ll take your departing flight.
