Highlights of Galapagos 8-Day Tour
Have fun on an 8-day tour in the Galapagos Islands and visit 6 islands which will show you the best of Galapagos. Your tour includes meals and a local, knowledgeable guide and it\'s conducted in a small-group so you have a more personalized attention. 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 your guide and group at San Cristobal Island. Visit Loberia Beach: a beautiful beach with great snorkeling. During the snorkeling tour, 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: San Cristobal (B) (L) (D)
Visit Kicker Rock (León Dormido): a great snorkel site. You can spot there many tropical fishes, sea turtles, sea lions, rays, reef sharks, and if lucky, hammerhead sharks.

Day 3: Floreana (B) (L) (D)
Departure for Floreana where you will snorkel and then visit the highlands, a place called ?Peace Asylum? where the first colonists of the islands settled. We will also spot Galapagos giant tortoises on the way. Afterwards we will continue to Isabela Island. Upon arrival, you will reach the flamingo lagoon.

Day 4: Isabela (B) (L) (D)
On your fourth day you must choose upon booking between a Volcano trekking tour (land tour) or Cabo Rosa (water tour with a supplement).

Option 1 - Volcano Hike: Early in the morning we will reach the highlands: 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 diameter. You will continue to Chico Volcano, which is a cone of Sierra Negra. You will walk through moon-like sceneries and have great views of nearby Fernandina Island and the north of the island. You will end the day with a nice swim and snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.

Option 2 - Cabo Rosa Tunnels (additional costs, 140,-$): 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 the penguins, blue footed boobies, and you will have great snorkeling too! Then you will meet the other group to swim/snorkel at Concha de Perla lagoon.

Day 5: Isabela - Santa Cruz (B) (L) (D)
In the morning you will visit the Tintoreras Islet, where you can spot the penguins. Departure to Santa Cruz by boat to then hike to the Tortuga Bay to spot a huge iguana colony.

You will visit some completely uninhabited islands such as Bartolomé, Seymour, Plazas or Santa Fé.

Day 7: Uninhabited Island (B) (L) (D)
Today you will visit another island: different to the previous day.

Day 8: Baltra
In the morning, you will be dropped-off at the Baltra airport.
